The night before...

Complacency is a killer. So sure was I that my manuscript was done that I left it to the last minute to tidy up the document, make it look pretty with a title page and a copyright symbol and have a final read-through. Which was when I discovered that one of the case studies I thought I'd written was still sitting, in raw, interview form, in the notes file. And that one of the sections really needed an extra bit of information that simply wasn't there...

So, as usual, the night before my project is due I'm working frantically to get it finished. Odds and sods, true, not the full project. But still...

If something feels too good to be true, it probably is. And I promise I'll stop talking about this tomorrow.

*Update: it's done! Yay! Now I can really stop talking about it. But what everyone is talking about is the FANTABULOUS giveaway at Maxabella Loves - you can win the perfect party outfit: Leona Edmiston dress, Shoes of Prey shoes, Elk Accessories earrings. What more could you want? Go now, immediately, and enter!

  8. You edited your post to be very, very nice to me and now I look even more like a rude sod in my comment above (but it was kinda funny!).

    You can enter, you know. There are no 'sisters can't enter' clauses. I am not a corporation. I will have evidence to prove that I didn't rig it when you win... oh, I meant 'if' you win. If. x
