It's deadline week!

So naturally, I'll be a bit quiet around here. And to illustrate why, I'm using the art and words of Hyperbole and a Half's Allie Brosh. (I really hope this doesn't violate copyright or anything, as this is excerpted from Allie's book, which is awesome incidentally; I found the images on Imgur. Allie, if my posting this makes you sad, please let me know and I'll take it down immediately after I stop squealing over the fact that one of my favorite writers/cartoonists contacted me. Also to my readers, that's not an affiliate link to buy the book, it's just a regular link, but I think you should buy it anyway because it is amazing.)

part 1

Around this time I typically give up, telling myself lies like "I work better under pressure anyway" and "This will be really easy to knock out in half the time you were given to write it." (If my editor happens to be reading this, please know that I actually started this one wayyy earlier than I usually do with stories...I may even turn in the first two of my three stories early. So that's good!)

part 2

Here's where I parcel out the work I have remaining and realize I'm going to be dropping absolutely everything for the next several days, or in this case, week.

part 3

I'd also like to point out that in the nearly 10 years I've been writing for print sources and websites, I have yet to actually miss a deadline. So that's good, too.

Disclaimer: None of those drawings are mine. Not one. Please don't think I'm stealing or being otherwise sneaky. If you like that content, buy Allie's book or visit her blog. Because they rock.
