Gotta Meet the Deadline

I am a freelance writer/editor. The job kind of goes in spurts and is in no way a steady income. But it is nice to have a little extra cash. :)

I have five 500-word articles due tomorrow. They really aren't that hard, but they do leak into my reading-and-doing-whatever-I-feel-like time (since Burke is studying away most of the time).

I finished one article tonight and started the second. Then I decided to look at a blog. or two. Well, you know what that means. I dillydallied too much time away.

Now I still have three and a half articles to write. ugh.

The worst part is that I was totally in the zone while I was writing. Now I'm not. And I need to be. darn. Burke's on his way home from campus right now. Now I really won't get anymore writing done.

Looks like a mad frenzy Friday morning like usual. Sorry, McKay. I love you. Please take a long nap for me tomorrow morning. We'll play in the afternoon if the weather is still beautiful (minus the rain). Or maybe we'll read books and play catch with your favorite little football. No manic Mondays here. Just manic Fridays to meet a deadline.

Um...I'm jealous of that job. What is it and how did you get it? I hope the universe cooperates tomorrow so it all gets done!

I'm glad I'm not the only one with this problem.
