    I count the months to my next birthday, the days till Christmas, and the remaining weeks of school (or summer).

    You must have some birthday party.

    Now that I’m in college, I count down the days to ANY break longer than a weekend (and even weekends sometimes).  I like this train of thought, cause waiting can be a witness too…
    (As I was typing up that last sentence. I got a picture of Amelia Pond sitting on her suitcase in The Eleventh Hour.  I guess the Doctor is going to pop up whether I want him to or not-I mostly do.)

    Some people are adrenaline junkies.
    Others are anticipation junkies. 😉
    There is a such a delight in knowing something is coming. Even better is the sure hope that Someone is coming again!

    Kaci, your post made me want to write. Music often does, but this was different. I enjoyed the post, but especially:

    “At that point, James says, you must meet or exceed the reader’s expectation. ”

    I want to go back to my current story and see that this aspect is done well. It’s true: We’re promising the reader something. And, we must do our best to fulfill our promise.

    Thank you!!
