I work better when I have definite goals to meet. Deadlines. Quotas. Whatever. So I did a few calculations and decided I need to write 20 pages a week through September in order to be ready to pitch two Desires to editors at the Moonlight & Magnolias conference the last weekend in Sept. Met my goal last week. Slow start this week. Still have days to go, though.
Washer broke down. Repair man can’t fix it. It’s DEAD! Thanks to my extended warranty, or service contract I supposedly get it replaced. We’ll see. Is anything ever that simple? Meanwhile, to the laundrymat I go. Ugh! Thought those days were over. Anybody got any quarters?
>I’m with you on the deadline stuff – I wish there was someone to beat me when I didn’t make deadline. (I hope Larissa doesn’t hear that last part about the beating…)
>Self-imposed deadlines. There’s a concept.I think I work better under a deadline, too. (Says she who doesn’t have a deadline at the moment. Once I do have one, I’ll probably turn into uber-bitch demon from hell. LOL)
>10 pages a day till I go back to work. I can do it! Good luck with yours – and ick on the dead washer! Hope its replaced fast!
