Last-Minute Larry

Let’s see… how long have I know about Wizard World? 10 months? And how long have I known I’d be sitting down with a publisher? Let’s call it 3 months. When do you think I finally put together an outline we could talk about and really get the ball rolling on some projects?

Yeah. Over the weekend. With a second still to be sent off tomorrow or Wednesday.

I don’t know what it is about deadlines, but I usually wait until last minute and get a last charge of energy to push them through. If I don’t have a deadline, I don’t make things a priority, much like what’s happening with the Top Secret Novella and the final act of “To Fight With Monsters”.

Not to mention the one other thing I forget every year: business cards. Yeah, I’ve got a new address for writing, but I still had time to get something printed up. Only now I’d be stuck with a slap-dash, sub-par design that I’d be hesitant to hand out. Again.

I really need to make sure I have my act together for the next con. I guess in that respect I’m lucky I don’t have a lot to sell this time around.
