Deadlines. You have to love them.
Here I am at my desk for my day job. The deadline is today. I have to do it or lose my job. So I’m doing it (nearly).
My next deadline is the first 2,000 words of a novel. I have to do this by 2nd April. I woke this morning at 5am and fretted.
‘What if I can’t do it?’
Then I suddenly remembered the joy of deadlines. I have to do it, or I will lose my place on the course.
So I’ll do it.
