Sorry I've been silent. I wish I could say it was strictly because I've been working, but it's not. And now I've only got 5 days left in the month. One book's beginning needs a total revamp. Another needs some serious tweaking throughout. One could use a total full-on polish during which I'm sure I'd find something to rewrite. And I've only got 5 days. (Okay, 5 until 10/1 but the submission window stays open for another 14 days after that, so 19 days, but still...)
I just don't think I can do it. Not that I'm giving up. I'm still going to try. But I'm also being realistic. And considering that I feel gross this morning, maybe realistic is best.
Sooooo, today will be spent mostly on the couch - when I'm not running errands, playing shuttle driver, etc. From there, I will utilize my daughter's Nook to re-read a manuscripts while jotting notes to fix said manuscript. If that time is interspersed with naps, so be it.
What are you up to today? What do you do when a deadline is looming and you know you're running out of time? Do you freak out (like I'm currently doing), or do you just put your head down and motor through (like I usually do)?
