...for finally finishing the first draft of their story. How weird is that? I'm guessing this has happened to other writers, but, nonetheless, it is a strange sensation. I got an odd look from a non-writer when I told her this. I figured the AW folks would understand.

We sure understand, Vandal! How my MS gives me dirty looks when I ignore it. :P

My characters never thank me, but boy do they get snappy when I don't finish something....

Wow! Mine never thank me, they just wander off and get on with their own lives.

How cool are yours! :snoopy:

I don't know about my characters, but my fingers thanked me for giving them a break. Bet yours did, too. Congrats and have fun.

Just wait until the secondary characters start to berate you for stopping. Heh... Good going! Keep up the good work!

I've never been thanked (ungrateful little buggers). But they do argue with me whenever I interview them; they think I'm pretty nosy. :)
Congrats on finishing the first draft!
