Time Crunch

So I went ahead and gave myself a deadline for the follow-on to Passing in the Night, and a word count target: end of August, and 80,000 words.  That works out to a bit less than 1,000 words a day.  Totally doable, if I’m disciplined.  Of course, the heist story is still lingering out there, as is the “Eyes on Fire”-inspired story.  And of course, there’s still that dragon-hunting story I had in mind too.  Ah, the things that go through my brain.

But all that has been supplanted today by a dreadful realization.  It’s June 14th.  Yup, that’s right: just 16 days until the Writers of the Future deadline for this quarter.  And I’ve got nothing to submit.  So now everything’s going on the back burner for a week or so.

Nothing like waiting til the last minute, right?  Fun, fun…

I am a writer. I focus mostly on Science Fiction and Fantasy, but dabble in other areas from time to time.
