Well, I knew setting myself a weekly schedule for book chapters would keep me on my toes! But frankly I'm skating on thin ice this week.
My auto-publishing schedule puts out each chapter at one minute past midnight each Friday morning (GMT) which means I have to have finished and uploaded the chapter by Thursday night. This week, I was away from home last night, out for dinner tonight, and will be out again at a friend's house tomorrow. Crazy busy! And this is not NaNoWriMo, these are words that people are actually going to read.
It isn't going to get any less hectic next week, I've just been offered a travel writing assignment for a magazine - but the catch is it has to be done by the end of next week. The same 'end of next week' by which I need to have written my little PhD paper, and submitted something to a student colloquium for the summer.... hmm....
I love deadlines! They make me so productive. Now, I just have to stop messing around on blogs and get writing ;)
