I've never minded having deadlines imposed on me. Most writers I know seem to be very good about extending theirs, but it seems like every time I've gotten a deadline that I've beaten it with gobs of time to spare.
I've made a deadline for myself, though. It has to do with finishing up my current project.
My apologies for not being my usual self these last couple of weeks. I am certain the voice of the blog reflects a certain distant state of mind. I wish Drew could come back and take over writing these posts for me, but I haven't seen him in weeks, think he's maybe taken off for Mexico or someplace like that again.
