I just received a two-month deadline extension for Man Bites World. Frankly, I’m embarrassed that I need it and more than a little frustrated with my method of working. For the last few weeks, I’ve had a powerful case of Other writers can do this, why can’t I? That’s still going on, but without the worry of missing a deadline.
Well, I did spend over two months of this year on revisions to the soon-to-be-retitled Everyone Loves Blue Dog. My agent warned me to factor that in when calculating deadlines, but I had no idea I’d be stuck on it again for over two months!
At any rate, I head to SoCal in two weeks to Comic-Con and see friends–while there, I plan to steal extra time for book three. Hopefully it will not only be finished, but good, too. Hopefully part 2, I will never have to ask for this again.
