The Craft of Writing / Re: Exclamations of relief

I think it depends on what the thing is. A simple "Yes!" might work in some circumstances. The other options are all possible too.

"Nightmare over!" is a popular one around here. Particularly if you've lost something then found it.

Here are some random thoughts: "Glad that's over with." "What a relief." "Oh my gosh." "I thought that would never end! OR never finish, get done, etc." OR any combo of the above?

You can do up-to-the-minute expressions, but that can date your story. So if you can find something generic OR get into your character's head and come up with something unique to them and their personality, either of those may be a simpler way to go.

I'm a "Thank God" gal, myself, but my tween and teen say, "Finally!" (I guess it's their sarcastic way of expressing, "This nightmare of x-y-z or worrying about x-y-z is over!")
