Thank You to the Cheerleaders!

I woke up this morning with trepidation in my heart. See, I had retired last night around 2am. And Steph...had not.

In the end, neither of us made out (crazy, ridiculous) goals. But! We did both make a noble effort and really got a ton of work done. For me, I've planted myself firmly in the murky middle...but quite a few scenes from last night were actually stuff I really really liked, so...I'm happy! And Steph wrote a ton in one night alone which is gobsmackingly amazing.

And the best part? You guys.


Dude, I cannot tell you how boring it is to stare at the screen and know that I need to work and want to bash my head onto my keyboard.

But last night? You guys were totally just cheering me on, and it was AMAZING and filled me with JOY and fueled my fingers towards SPURIOUS WRITING.

So, I texted Steph and said...what do you think about giving something to our cheerleaders?

And she said: YES.

And so:

Today, while we meet up at the coffee shop, we're going to give one person who commented or tweeted us or otherwise encouraged and/or harassed us LAST NIGHT during the writing session of DOOM will get a signed copy of ACROSS THE UNIVERSE and a signed copy of ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS (paperback editions) and I'm throwing in some new swag that I just got for AtU in the bucket, too (a poster, pin and brand-spanking-new rubber band bracelet that you can't see in the pic).





We'll announce the winner later today, after I force Steph to purchase all my coffee for me BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Just the thought of Beth Revis and Stephanie Perkins TOGETHER in a coffee shop fills me with a sort of giddy joy.

Alas, I was not one of your cheerleaders last night--I wish I had been, though, I do love both of you!

Yay for cheerleaders!

I'll admit, that typo (neither of us made out*) made me do a double take as I was reading the post in the blogger dashboard. :)
