Deadlines

Douglas Adams on deadlines:

 

“I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.”

 

This last week I set deadlines for my book. I know when all four of my drafts need to be finished. I know when I need to send it off to get printed. I know when I need to make a decision about who’ll design the cover. It was a real relief to create that road map and know what exactly what needed to be done in the coming months.

But now I have to actually do the work?

Oh boy.
