What I will do if I finish Bell-Men today

I'm so close. Also, finally, I think I know how I'm going to end this thing. The only problem is getting butt in chair and bashing out the last five thousand or so words.

So: reward time! If I finish Bell-Men today, I will go out and buy a carton of Ben & Jerry's (I'm not sure what flavor, since they no longer seem to make The Gobfather, which is my absolute favorite). Then I will change into my pajamas, get into bed, and read Fritz Leiber's Swords & Deviltry while I eat as much ice cream as I can hold.

I guess I should change out of my pajamas first, huh?

Oh, Ben & Jerry's...how I love thee.

Good luck on knocking out the end. Good feeling, "the end".

The ice cream sounds like a big motivator (I know it would work for me, too!)

Thanks, it's hard going right now. I've got a huge chunk of absolutely necessary exposition going on right now--Cam's roommate is explaining what happened after Cam went to the bell-men's world. After that I can dive into the big final confrontation and it should go a lot faster.

Alan--Ice cream is always a good motivator for me, even when it's cold. :)

Woot! Chocolate Mint Chip for the win.

You can do it!Enjoy the i/c and the book. A well deserved break is due you.

You could change into difference pajamas! : )

K.C. Shaw said...

Cate--Mmmmm, anything chocolate and mint is my friend!

Jamie--I'm getting really close now. Endgame is here; the book will be finished in less than a thousand words. So of course I'm taking a blog break.

Natalie--I do have the world's biggest collection of pajamas, actually, even after I threw out some of the older and more beat up sets. I love nightclothes.

Pity you don't still have hot weather over there, you could enjoy icecream in bed without PJ's and enjoy the cool drippings as well!

I'll leave now and don't worry - I'll smack myself (actually that doesn't sound right either!)

Congrats on finishing - as I'm sure it has been by now ;c) Awesome output on this one.

K.C. Shaw said...

Yup, I finished about an hour ago now. I'm eating beef stew now and soon I'll be hitting the ice cream. In a completely platonic way.

No smacking yourself! *snickers*

BT said...

I shall save the self abuse for another time then...

Congratulations! Woot, woot, clapping and general all-round back slapping.

Feel free to have a long cold alcoholic drink on me (virtually speaking, of course ;c))

Thanks! I wish I had something alcoholic, actually. The ice cream turned out to be disappointing (I got a new flavor, some kind of vanilla and caramel stuff. I should have taken Cate's advice and gone with mint chocolate).
