Bad. Deadlines can feel bad.
I had drafted a long post detailing all the ins and outs of my deadline experiences over the past seven months. I still wish I could share it, because I think it's the kind of thing that's very helpful to other writers.
But I'm going to have to wait until I can teach it in a class.
For now, I'll just say, friends, that I am overjoyed to be only two chapters from the end of my third and last novel in this contract, the end of the Saddler's Legacy series that has occupied my intellectual life for the last five years.
And I'll look forward to that class, fellow writers, when I'll give you the real low-down on deadlines and life balance.
