just under the deadline

a while ago a friend told me he thought i wrote better when i didn't give myself a whole bunch of time to ruin it with thinking. that made sense to me, at the time. (and he was an editor, after all)

but what that really means is that i've trained myself to procrastinate till the VERY last minute.

i'm exhausticated.

but the piece for Geez mag is finished, i'm actually happy with it (until i reread it tomorrow) and if they use it, huzzah!

"Geez" magazine? Never heard of it, but i'll have to check it out.
As for working with a deadline and waiting till the very last minute - that's THE only way I get things done. As I like to say, "I put the PRO in procrastination." I could be the president of the "ohshitthisisduetomorrow" club. We'd have awesome T-shirts ... if we got around to making them. I'll nominate you veep, if you want. ;)
