What happens with good news?

I have been reading a lot about writing/blogging friends gaining contracts and their books being published. It is completely awesome news for them and gets me excited just hearing their good news. I like the different things they are doing to promote themselves, promote their books and spread the word.

I have bought or will buy their books when they are released.

So my question for the day is, if you haven't been published or signed with an agent, what would you do to celebrate when that happens?

Me.... I would probably go out to dinner with the family to celebrate and that's about it. If I had some extra money, I would probably go through a bit of a celebratory shopping and buy some new toys to keep me busy while I wait on edits/revisions from said agent or editor.

So if you had some great news, how would you celebrate?


  1. LOL! If I had good news, I'd announce it on QT. I'd need a BIG advance before I'd spend any money these days.

  2. Yeah I think the times are like that now.

  3. If I had something good happen...first I notify my cps and husband...then my bloggy friends...then my facebook friends...Then I'd reread the email to make sure I hadn't just made a fool of myself. LOL!

    If I ever make any money writing, I'll probably celebrate by going to a big conference or intensive retreat.
