Spooky or what? - What I suspect.

NMBK was to be my second "real" attempt at a book. The first draft of BTL was finished and while I was giving myself a break from it before I started rewriting and editing I started my next epic. However, NMBK was set aside in favour of what I thought was a better idea (the one I've recently mothballed) and trying to get some publishing credits under my belt.
That was the past.
The present is that BTL is now rewritten and edited to death and ready to go out to agents and I've had a few things published so I recently decided to pick up NMBK again. I've been going to do it for a while and it was in my diary to have reviewed what was already written by the 18th of this month but as I'm off work today (planned not snowbound even though we are) I thought I'd review what I've already written this morning with a pot of tea and a cookie or two.
So I opened up the book that what I've written so far is in and was surprised to find that I started it on 7th January 2007. I always date when I start something. I know its weird but there you go. That means that its 3 years old today.
So my question is: Do we need a cake? I think we do.
Happy Birthday NMBK and I promise that by the time you're 4 I'll have the first draft (at least) finished.
Gotta go - need to bake.

Ooh, that is a bit spooky. Definitely a sign I think! (And definitely warrants some cake :o))

Definitely a good omen I think! Go baking....!

Amanda said...

Yes, definitely a sign methinks!

I agree with you both that it is a sign - any excuse for a cake.

Happy Birthday NMBK. And yes, you must have cake.

That is spooky - but in a good way.

So glad that we're all in agreement about the cake. And I did find it a bit of a "coincidence" that I chose to pick it up today, the anniversary of the day that I started it.

Shall I bring the candles and turn it into a party?
Happy Birthday, bestselling novel!

I agree with the other comments Colette - definitely a good sign, and I hope you had a cake! Was it a chocolate one? x
