I’m in the final three-month stretch to my deadline, which means little sleep and an excuse to eat badly. I was one of those people who loved cramming for exams. So exciting! What makes it even crazier and more fun is having a new book, The Good Father, out at the same time. So I’m doing book signings and interviews and guest blog posts while I’m writing like mad and eating Milano cookies. (Have they taken the orange Milanos off the market? Can’t find them!)
We’re at the beach right now, where I love to write. So peaceful! In looking for an image for this post, I thought I’d share a beach related photo. This is a new one of John’s, taken of shells we found on “our” beach. I love this picture and think it’s going to be the next one to hang above our mantel.
Next week I’ll be on retreat with my writing buds and I know that, with Mary Kay Andrews there to crack the whip, I’ll get tons accomplished and many M&M peanuts ingested.
How about you? Are you ever on deadlines these days? How do you cope?
