I might still make it. It's starting to look impossible... but I might still make it.
How many of you create deadlines for yourselves? My personal deadline for finishing revisions on Mysterious Other Novel is getting super close and I'm worried I might not make it. But I have to make it! But it's just a self-imposed deadline, so does it really matter? Yes!
Once the deadline passes unmet, I find my output slows considerably. I already missed the deadline. Why push myself? Secondary self-imposed deadlines aren't as pressing.
I searched for pictures of zombies in a kick line, because that's what I think of when I read the word "deadline". But, there aren't very many artful photos of zombies in kick lines.
What about you? Do you set deadlines for yourself? Do you generally meet them? When you don't, do you think it's due to procrastination or unrealistic expectations?
