I like having deadlines. Deadlines are very motivating, since I am loathe to miss one and always have been. If I have to stay up all night to finish, I will make my deadlines. I pulled many an all-nighter in university finishing essays, since my time-management skills were not very well honed, to put it kindly.
I have a deadline for my new novel, and I've been plugging away to ensure that I meet it, which I will, with some room to breathe, even. After months of nose to grindstone, I'll be taking a much-needed vacation to Provincetown and New York City. I can practically taste the frozen margaritas already.
So here's a question: What's your favourite way to celebrate once you've completed an important project and met a deadline?
