can't sleep books will eat me

it's 106 miles to chicago

Well, it's about that time. I know this is really what you come to this livejournal for: the mad glamour of the last-minute deadline crunch.

There's three or five chapters of the Shattered Pillars rewrite left to get through, and it might be time to start the rampant self-abuse portion of finishing the book. Because while I am terribly avoidant and would rather be doing anything else in the world, the book still steadfastly refuses to write itself. Even though I know everything that has to happen between here and the end.

The floor is swept, the counters are wiped, and did I mention I made a tumblr thingy? I'm out of excuses.

And since my plans for this weekend canceled themselves and I'm still too sick to be doing much of anything but sitting on the sofa, this seems like a very good time to knuckle down and kill me a submission draft.

So here we go. My schedule is clear, my head is stuffy, the dog is asleep on his blanket in the sun, and it's time to get into that altered state of consciousness and turn this sucker's pockets out. Shattered Pillars dies this week.

With my draft, or on it.

OH THE GLAMOUR! Why, when said like that, does it sound so eerily similar to OH THE HORROR! #ScribeIssues
A writing career. Because I loved homework and cramming so much?
"Yep," he says as he types a French paper and prepares to knock down another 15 pages of a screenplay.
