Typing The End is a great feeling. I have written—most likely a novel that has taken me months and hours of being on my computer and more hours of scrolling through Pinterest. But the end has arrived.
I am no longer writing. I have written. So comes the celebration, right.

For my two medieval Scottish Highlander Novels, The Marriage Alliance and Claiming the Highlander, I have celebrated their completion by doing two things.
First, I take a couple of days off. I watch TV, lay in bed, anything to rest my brain so I can recharge because I have other projects I am working on and cannot waste time. But creativity is important so I can work on my next project.
The second thing I do to celebrate is a manicure.
While I am writing, I don’t bother doing my nails. So by the time I finish a manuscript my nails look like some monster’s and not the hands of a lady (as my mother and grandmother would say). When I step out of the nail salon with my nails perfectly painted, and my hands wonderfully massage, my need to is fully recharged.

Then it is back to my computer to do this all over again, which will be happening soon with The Laird’s Right and Highland Scandal. Yeah, my hands look scary and that manicure image has me drooling.
Yeah, my hands look scary. I can’t wait for my manicure. *stares at image with longing*
Now tell me what do you plan to celebrate and how you plan to do it.
