Ever race a deadline? You can’t really escape the little bastards. All they do is keep closing in. You either win or you lose. No tie. No, “Good try.” Just the trophy or the long road home. I just realized last night that an anthology I want to submit to has a Thursday deadline. The word count’s low enough to hit without a problem, it’s the editing, getting Hollie to give it a once over and rewriting that has me a little flustered.
Of all things it’s a Wizard of Oz story. We’ll see what happens.
Damned bloody deadlines!
