She said WHAT???

This is how I feel this week, but less hairy--well, a little less
Okay, talked to my editor and I have eight days to finish edits for THE WHITE ASSASSIN or I won't have ARC's in time for BEA. Etch it in stone, you heard it hear first, I WILL get them done! I'm determined, especially when it comes to deadlines. Anyone else have any writing deadlines they need to meet, self-imposed or otherwise? Even if I give the deadline to myself and no one else is holding me accountable, I seem to hit my goals much better. How about you?

  1. Go, Hilary! You can do it. :)

    Self deadlines don't usually work as well as a real deadline, but I still try to keep the self ones as much as the real ones.

  5. I don't do deadlines. With the soul-sucking day job, parenting, and everything else it's just way too easy to miss them. I have no idea what I'm going to do if I ever get offers.

  6. Just keep writing. Just keep writing. I want to have my latest revision done by the end of March. I agree with Cherie Reich that self-imposed deadlines aren't quite as scary and intimidating.

    Good luck!
