One thing I dislike about myself is that I rarely get excited about finishing major milestones of a project.
Finish a novel after four years of writing it? Meh.
Publish my first book and hold it my hand? Meh... wait... no, meh.
Hold my firstborn child for the first time? Meh.
It's kind of frustrating. I get joy over time but I rarely get any spike of happiness for anything.
@dmoonfire ...oh hey did I even remember to celebrate getting to 600,000 words this month?
@aldersprig I remember you talking about it, but otherwise it's the same thing.
I'm probably just struggling with the people who say I'm a good writer and the lack of... impact for a better word for my accomplishments. There is a disconnect between the two and today I'm feeling it more than usual.
@dmoonfire *tea* yeah, I'm feeling a bit of that too.
