NaNoWriMo Day 12: How do you celebrate your wins?

I went straight from finishing my NaNoWriMo manuscript at 50,644 words to a western music concert with the hubby tonight. Nothing like an event at 6:30 p.m. to motivate my getting done early enough. From 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. today, I sprinted 10,021 words.

I was telling my husband about it and we got talking about how we celebrate our wins. He said he really doesn’t do anything like that when he meets his business goals. I told him for me it would be going out to eat someplace good and preferably exotic that I’ve never tried before. In actuality, I will most likely sleep in.

What do you do to celebrate your wins, big or small?

What I learned from today’s completion:

1.I can finish drafting a 50K-word book. Again!

2.It was a lot easier drafting this book as it is book 6 in a series as opposed to a book one where I am still word-building.

3.I cannot remember what I’ve written the past five days. My brain is mush. I think (hope!) there were moments of brilliance.

4.This was fun. I sprinted often with other authors. But occasionally, it was just me, myself and I. And it was still fun.

5.Christmas romance is so satisfying to write. There are built-in conventions that help move the plot along, there is always something going on, and I tend to write about flawed characters who grow through the story.
