I realized/discovered/was told yesterday that I need to write 8 chapters in the next 7 weeks. Two of those weeks, I’m travelling, so it’s really 8 chapters in 5 weeks. And this week is almost over, in terms of days that I will actually have time to work on this. So it’s more like 8 chapters in 4 weeks.
As Douglas Adams observed,
I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.
