Step 5 in writing a book: Done!
As I mentioned last week, I wrote the first draft of my book. Part of my awesome 10 step plan to writing/publishing said book is rewarding myself after the first draft is complete with a fancy purse. Now, step 5 is complete, and it’s on to editing.
I went to the Chicago Premium Outlet mall in Aurora because I was meeting my friend Terri nearby for lunch, and also because I heard the Rosemont outlet mall stinks. There, I was conflicted with the most difficult choice in my entire life, do I buy a Coach purse, or a Kate Spade?
I wandered aimlessly through both stores, hoping to find the perfect one. Then, I kid you not, this wallet literally jumped off the shelf and on to the floor in front of me:
“THE WALLET CHOOSES THE WIZARD, MR. POTTER”
I didn’t get it though because it was beige. But it made me realize, I didn’t have to choose- I could get a wallet at one store, and a purse at the other!
So here they are, my fancy first draft purse and my fancy first draft wallet! (Not pictured, my fancy first draft shirts and jewelry I bought at some other stores. YOLO or whatever.)
And now, because they cost as much as my word count, I will never buy a fancy purse or wallet again until I make a movie.
