I have a self-imposed deadline too. One that I'm sure to make.
I have a slutty new idea taking over my brain!
[Slutty new idea: defined as the idea that comes out of nowhere and takes your attention away from what you're supposed to be doing. SNI does not care about deadlines. SNI does not care what genre you write in. SNI does not care about your family - because she flirts. Oh, boy, does she flirt! Pouring out NEW WORDS (!!!) from seemingly unknown places.]
I'm trying to stay on task. It's very important that I finish this draft. However, I have given in to the SNI bug. It's so tempting... so fresh and it makes me very, very happy. Though, first drafts usually do before the reality of the work I must to do in order to make it readable happens.
