Views From The Captain’s Chair! Episode Eleven: Deadlines!
No time to write a post! Gotta meet a deadline!
Actually, I’m not kidding. Part of being a full-time professional writer is that I have monthly deadlines I need to hit in order to get my manuscripts in on time to my publishers. This means things like blog posts and brushing my teeth will have to wait.
But let’s not have this space go to waste. Feel free to share your thoughts on deadlines. Maybe a story or two on how working under pressure has helped/hurt your writing. Or just vent about the anxiety attack you are close to having because the first draft is due NOW!
Deadlines are there for a reason, and I am glad for them, but let’s face it, life would be better without them. Or would it? OR WOULD IT?
Sound off, yo, in the comments below.
I’ll leave you all to it.
Disclaimer: Views From The Captain’s Chair are just that: views. These are not laws. These are not set in stone. I could be totally wrong. I could be off my rocker (shut up). I could be full of S-H-I-T. I could change my mind next week. All of that is possible. Who knows? But if even just a little of this helps you then I’m happy with that. If it just makes you stop and think then I’ve done my job. Which I really need to get back to. Blogging don’t pay for the bourbon! Oh, and the whole Captain’s Chair thing? Yeah, I write in a captain’s chair. It’s true, Mateys! Got a question? Need some one on one? Shoot me an email, a DM, a PM (no BMs) or comment below.
