The Looming Deadline

FinishLineAheadHello, my friends!

I wanted to let everyone know I’m still here, and aside from the continual exhaustion I face from my day job, which until recently had been sapping all my creative energy like some sort of vampire, I have been on a fiendish race to finish the rewrite of my first screenplay (again) in time to make the regular deadline of the Nicholl Fellowship tomorrow.

For those of you who have been with me for some time, I have complained from time to time (and time again) about that blasted 3rd act.  For once, I’m feeling pretty good about it, which is perfect since I don’t have any time to really mess with it if I want to get it in on time.

There’s nothing like the adrenaline rush of an impending deadline to kick one’s creative butt into shape.  I’ve been anxiety ridden all week and that flush of emotion and the stress to reach that goal have been both nerve-wracking and welcome.

I’ll be back to my ramblings next week, and hopefully working towards new goals.

If you’re entering the contest I wish you lots of luck!  And I hope you’ll do the same for me! 🙂

Happy Writing!
