I have this deadline coming up--10 weeks to whip my novel into the best shape I can. (That's like 4 chapters a week...uh...)
BECAUSE I'M HAVING A BABY! Phew, just had to get that off my chest.
Is this weird that I'm just starting to realize this? I mean come on--I start my final trimester tomorrow... And yeah my due date isn't until May...but since my last child came at 36 weeks, um I'm kinda feeling like maybe I need to rush things along.
Is this stressing me out?
NO NOT AT ALL! SHEESH! WHY ARE YOU EVEN ASKING ME THIS!?!
(wiping copious amounts of frosting off my face)
I'm not sure if it's realizing that I'm going to have another kid around, making it twice as hard to do anything for a while or the fact that I have this deadline...but it's like all of a sudden my brain is shutting down and I can't even fix the next page let alone the next chapter.
Maybe it's because I'm having serious nesting issues today and worked my bum off--seriously when did I care that there were crumbs on the toaster or that weird pink stain on the linoleum...but all of a sudden my eyes were like hyper-critical noticing every freakin' thing...crumbs, peeling paint, un-organized drawers, and all the random dirt, dust, sparkles... it was a long day.
Okay. I feel better...I guess I'll go stare at my stupid novel again.
Anybody else have an impeding deadline? Or any idea what to do about it?
