The Final Stretch

This blog will be super short today. All my energies are being poured into my WIP which is due in two weeks. Every word I type here is like one I’m taking away from my book.

Word count requirements….ughhhh. Darn publishers wanting things the way they want them.

But it is nice to take a break from the stress of the end. You know how it is, you can see the end in sight and you’re just typing and typing as fast as you can to get there. Pushing and pushing to make sure you hit that right word count number at the end of the chapter.

I love the end. I hate the end. I love deadlines because they push me to work harder. I hate deadlines because they stress me the heck out.

And people wonder why writers drink!

Okay that’s it. It’s all I can spare. This blog cost me 182 words and now I’m going to have to come up with a way to make that up. Here we go – the final stretch – DEEP BREATH.

Go, Steph, go. I'm right behind you. I've got a mid-September deadline that I'm racing toward.

Crap! I just spent 24 words on this post!

And that's if you count mid-September as one word. Crap! 34!!!!
