“I love the way deadlines sounds when they whoosh by...” -Douglas Adams
So... I know it's June, and many of you aren't thinking about school work, work work, or deadlines. You're thinking about the craziness the world is throwing at you right now or (hopefully) what the summer has in store for you. I hope you have something awesome planned!
I've been thinking about deadlines. The way I see it, there are a few types of kids in school:
A) The ones who turn in their homework ahead of time
B) The ones who turn in their homework on time
C) The ones who turn in their homework two weeks late
D) The ones who never turn in their homework at all
My homework and school projects were usually on time. I learned pretty quickly in intermediate/middle school that not turning in my work got me GROUNDED when report cards came around. Yes, I am old enough that they used to be on paper. No, you couldn't actually white out grades and change them (believe me, I would have tried it). LOL
Instead, I adapted. I became the kid who stayed up until sunrise finishing my big school projects or cramming for finals. (Thanks Mom for those late night ink and poster board runs!) Now, I like to think I'm a little older and wiser. I've added coffee to the routine. That's progress, right? I think it's the way my brain is wired. There's nothing like a deadline to get my butt in a chair and my hands on my keyboard. (Don't worry. Seven Crowns is still on schedule :p Formatting for ebook is currently in progress.)
So, which kind of kid were/are you? Send me your funniest, most outlandish homework/project/study stories for a chance to get featured in the July newsletter.
