ALL THE HIGH FIVES!

YOU GUYS.

Do you know what this is?  This is the finished final draft of my next book, which I have finally turned into my wonderful and incredibly patient editor.  WHOOP!

Not the actual title, obviously

Every time I write a book I think it’s the last one… that I’ll never be funny again, that I don’t have the focus or energy to finish.  That I’ve run out of life and of stories.  And I did for a bit, which is why I’m turning this in far behind the deadline that was set.  I work slow…slower than most writers, I think.  I work around depression and anxiety and assorted bullshit and I delete two pages for every three I write BUT in the end, I am left with stories.  They are stories I’m proud of, even though so many of them involve the most ridiculous moments of my life.

So today I breathe a quick sigh of relief and celebrate this small (but enormous for me) victory.  And tomorrow I leave for Italy, where we have not planned properly at all and will spend 6 days getting lost as we celebrate Hailey’s and Victor’s birthdays.  And then I’ll come back and get notes from my editor and begin the process again.

And that’s a very good thing.

Thank you for seeing me through.

    And well done over the book. I think anyone who writes one in time for their first, second or third deadline is an overachiever 🥳

  99. Woot! Congrats, Jenny! That’s wonderful news! I can’t wait to read it… =)

  100. YAY! I am SO looking forward to reading this one! Thank you!

    And have a blast in Italy!

  101. Jenny, I’m so excited! I have read Furiously Happy over again at least 10 times and it never fails to make me laugh! I can’t wait to read this one 20 times!

  102. Yea! Congratulations! You’re having quite the summer… finished another best-seller, moving forward with a kick-ass bookstore, going to Italy… You’re breaking all the barriers of depression by doing meaningful and positive shit. Plus, I’m sure there’s plenty that you haven’t told us about.

    Have a great trip and come back with more to share! Congratulations again!!!

  103. YAY!!!! We’re so lucky to have you! xo

    Mamacita recently posted Expanding Comfort Zones.

  106. Congratulations on finishing your book!! Have fun in Italy! We just got back from Germany and my phone somehow locked itself during my flight, I had all of the hotel info, where to get off the train, etc., stored in my phone so I didn’t have to carry a bunch of stuff… Finally had to go to a local store after getting off the train at what I hoped was the right stop. Found a tractor supply company because there were no taxis anywhere. They were nice enough to give me a ride to my hotel, so I gave him my chocolates I had bought to snack on but didn’t.

  107. squeeeeeee! That’s so awesome!!! Ohhh I can’t wait to read it! Oh, and I love the name of the document on the bottom of that page, it seems like a lot of writers do that (I’m currently working on a document titled ‘FULL Remy-story FINAL EDIT’!)

    Can’t wait to see all the awesome pictures/posts from Italy, I love living vicariously through your family!

    Andie (your biggest fan) Sarjeant

    That is fantastic in so many ways! For you as a literary artist, for those of us who love and appreciate your creations and for your family as they can see and feel your relief! Enjoy every second of your trip! Hit both Pompey and Herculaneum (they are close to one another but experienced different volcanic outcomes so the results are not the same). One has skeletons frozen in position while the other has the plaster molds of the outer bodies. Post pics for all of us jealous kids at home. 😁

  109. I would SO buy a book called OMFG It’s Done. Brilliant title. 🙂 I’m sure whatever it is you’re actually calling it will be equally ‘can’t wait to buy’-ish.

  110. Congrats! I can’t wait to read it. And no one is slower than George R.R. Martin.

  115. Congrats!! I can’t wait I have have loved the other 2 plus the coloring book couldn’t put them down literally!!

  116. This is a huge victory for ALL of us, Jenny! Your books are gems and verbal and comic miracles. Thank you for writing! Have a lovely time in Italy!

  117. YAY!!!!!! When can I pre-order the book? (Also, I wouldn’t have been surprised if that was the actual title.)

  118. CONGRATULATION!!! You are amazing and I cant wait to read all of your stories that help me and many others through our depression/anxiety/oatmeal wading days!

  119. Congrats! Have fun in Italy! I was supposed to go to Italy on Tuesday with my husband but the horrible tour operator changed the date, stole the money when we asked for refunds & said we forfeit any chance to go if the trip ever happens.

  120. Finishing writing a book is not a small victory. It’s huge. You rock! Enjoy the trip:)

  121. Congratulations! I can’t wait to read the book or to hear about your trip to Italy and all the adventures thereof. Safe travels and have fun.

  156. Jenny, I just recently found your blog/books/ and I have read them and listened to them to audible over and over again. You have helped me be more vocal about my mental illness, forgive myself more on my bad days, and inspired me to write again (a hobby and dream I had set aside for many years because I think anyone would think I was funny or get my weird sense of humor). I am so beyond excited for this next book, and I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for continuing to tell your stories.

  202. Oh, Jenny, I am so happy for you, and, selfishly, thrilled for me! I can’t wait to read it! Congratulations!

  203. In my opinion timing doesn’t matter. Battling through huge obstacles like depression and anxiety makes you a warrior (and oftentimes warriors need a rest, so we can gather our strength to fight on) I believe anything you write is worth the wait and I’m so glad we have another book to look forward to! I love your writing, your sense of humor, and your tenacity. Most of all I appreciate that you help me realize that I’m wonderful even with flaws like depression and anxiety…that I’m not alone in my strangeness and awkwardness. You make me laugh hysterically and help me to learn to accept and enjoy myself just as I am and I adore you so hard for that!
    Hope y’all have an amazing trip ❤

  204. So excited for you…and us!! Have a blast in Italy and bring back even more stories. Also, please don’t compare yourself to other writers. Everyone does things at their place, no matter what it is. And you have all of us supporting you.

  205. Oh goodie!!! I can’t wait to read it! Congrats on all your hard work and muddling through. I hope Italy is the least stressful thing you’ve done all year, and I look forward to hearing about it in your blog when you get back, (or in your next book, whenever that may be…)

    We appreciate how hard you work to feed our hearts and funny bones, Jenny. This opus looks like a magnum.

  207. I love you Jenny!🥰

  208. SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  209. Congratulations!! You should be so proud of yourself!

    I recently watched an uplifting short anime I think you might really like. It’s called My Roommate Is A Cat, and it’s free on CrunchyRoll. It’s about a writer with social anxiety, and I just feel like it might be right up your alley.

  210. How exciting a new and wonderful trip!

  211. Thank you so much for being you and bringing this tribe of wonderful people together. Thank you for spending so very much time writing books, we love them all! Have a great time in Italy!

  212. Fantastic!!!

  213. Congrats 🎊 can’t wait

  214. Thank you, for sharing your stories.

  215. I am so amazed by you! And proud of you being able to actually write books around your illnesses. And I will pre-order from Amazon the second it becomes available because I love every word you write!

  216. Looking forward to reading your new book. Have a great time in Italy …it’s a wonderful place ..you’ll have a great time.

  217. Awesome! Love reading your books. And who says theres a time frame for writing books. I took years on my first and currently have 3 in progress. Cant wait to read this one. Have a great trip!

  219. Can’t wait! The very best thing is getting your books on audible so you can read them to me when I’m having a shitty day and need to laugh with someone who doesn’t judge my sense of humor 🙃

  220. Good for you! Hope you enjoy Italy. Cannot wait to read about your adventures!

  221. This is the best thing that has happened to me in the entire month. You have another book. I could cry with happiness.
    Also, Let’s pretend this never happened was on my reading list for this year. This is a book I will be (re)reading for school. I feel the need to tell you this.

  222. I am high five-ing you like crazy over here! So excited to read another one of your books, which will surely be a balm to my soul like your others were. So happy for you! Enjoy Italy.

  223. Yay Jenny! Good job once again! Wishing you all a lovely time in Italy. On a somewhat related note: there is an Oddities and Curiosities Expo that travels the country and it sounds right up your alley. Here is a link to the article: https://www.ozy.com/good-sht/get-creeped-out-and-freaked-out-at-this-oddities-expo/96048

  224. Boom goes the dynamite!! I’m looking forward to reading it.

  225. SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY 😍😍😍😍😍😍

  226. YAAASSSS KWEEN!!!!!!!! This makes me so happy and impatient! (No pressure, editor.)

    Also, your filename? We’d never confuse our manuscripts. Because mine are manuscriptfinalFINAL_FINALWITHTWEAKS_FINAL!!!_corr.scriv and yours are the other way round. We are geniuses of organisation.

  227. Congratulations!! That is great news!!

  228. Yay!!! So excited for you! Lookin forward to reading it, and by the way… I LOVE the current title. 😂

  229. Woohoo. I need a 3rd audiobook for those sleepless nights. You rock reading your own books Jenny, I can’t imagine it any other way!

  230. I can hardly wait!!!!

  231. This is very exciting news! As far as you being a slower writer than most….all I can say is that you have GRRM beat, hands down. It took him 5 years to write Game of Thrones, the first in the Song of Ice & Fire series, and 6 years to write A Dance with Dragons which is the 5th and latest book published in this series. That was back in 2011. It’s 2019 and he is still working on book number 6. You are kicking his ass! And while his stories are amazing, your’s are uplifting and inspiring and give people hope…because so many of us have been in dark places. You help us find the light again. Keep up the amazing work!

  232. Already looking forward to it! So exciting! I love that you’re so real in your stories & blog … helps so many people with mental illness feel not so alone & others who don’t understand just a bit more. You’re fabulous!

  233. so excited- gonna pre-order! i need more of you in my life.

  234. OH. MY. GOD-DUH!!!!!!!!!!!! YAAAAAY!!!! I’ve read and listened to your other books so often I almost know them by heart…

  235. I think your tribe understands that its not easy work, even when you love it. But since you are our favorite writer and we feel so connected to you through that work, you putting yourself through the struggle to let us read more is appricate. Thank you <3

  236. Thanks for the information
