I NEED THOSE DEADLINES!

I am one of those writers who definitely needs a deadline. And the funny thing is, I think I just realized that this evening!

Anything I've ever written for a specific publication, always had a deadline, and that always kept me on track to get the story written and submitted in time.

Recently I was asked by a first rate-publisher to interview an individual and write her story. Because it was for a future possible publication, the publisher didn't feel it was right to give me a deadline. After much stressing, trying to get motivated, worrying about getting it written in a timely manner, I asked for a deadline date. I was graciously given one and now I can de-stress and begin my writing! And my headache and neck ache have mysteriously gone away.....Hmmm....

Thank you, Ms. B. !
