No time to say “Hello”, “Goodbye”,
I’m late! I’m late! I’m late!
Okay, I’m not late...yet, but I do have a big deadline coming up and I’m about as frazzled as the White Rabbit so this post is going to be short.
I don’t know about my fellow Type M’ers and all of you blog readers, but I’m not really great when it comes to dealing with deadlines. I get all anxious and bothered which makes it hard to write so awhile back I searched the web for advice from fellow authors. Here’s what I found:
Sue Ann Jaffarian is the author of the Odelia Grey Mystery Series, the Ghost of Granny Apples Mystery Series, the Madison Rose Vampire Mystery Series and a whole lot of other stuff. She writes all of these things while working full-time so she knows all about deadlines. Here’s the first post of a series she did on her blog about dealing with those deadlines: http://sueannjaffarian.blogspot.com/2014/09/diary-of-deadline-35-days.html
Here’s a post I found on the Writer’s Digest website:
And here’s one on the Write It Sideways blog:
I suspect if I actually took the advice in some of these blogs I’d be a whole lot happier and not as stressed out. Next time, next time.
Okay, that’s it for me. Back to my writing cave. I have that deadline to deal with.
