Celebrate the Small Things - 14 June

Here we are with another Celebrate the Small Things, and HOW are we in Mid June people, how?

The rules of Celebrating are so simple they aren't really rules! Just sign up on the linky, post some celebrations, and hop around and share the celebrations of others! The celebrations can be as small as you like and don't have to be writing related.

Mine for this week are:

  • A friend from my writing group has a book deal, and has even sold rights to Germany - I am so excited for her.
  • It is the weekend.
  • I am able to work from home today which is good because no commute and also means I can get lots of stuff done!
  • Otherwise been a busy work average sort of week but every 'normal' week which passes is a reason to celebrate in itself. Grateful for all to be averagely well!

Here's the linky list!


  1. Someone said 'the wonder of life is composed mostly of trivia' (Robert Raynolds, actually), and I think he's right. I'm glad you have a sum of small things that together make you smile!

  2. Yay for the normal week, work from home time, and for the weekend! Big congrats to your friend for her deal! I made my own publishing announcement this week, but because of IWSG last week and my big announcement this week, I've neglected to do the Celebrate the Small Things for two weeks now. *blush* But I'll visit blog-hoppers, and I promise to be back next week with a post. :-)

  3. Always happy when I don't have to commute!

  4. Sounds exciting! Working from home sounds nice, wish I could do that! Maybe one day :)
