True, I don't get a lot as I don't get asked for stories.
The last deadline I had was one I set. I was writing the story "Ceremonies" for book 2 of Chronicles of Mark Johnson, now released as Wharfemere finale. I wanted the story sent to my friends by October 18th.
The date has a double meaning, not only is this the date in the story, it's my birthday. Two days before the deadline I hadn't started. My friends weren't concerned about the timing, but I was. In the end, I wrote and sent the story in one afternoon.
My current deadline is a 5,000 word story in two weeks. This may appear a tall order, but years ago, I was writing that amount twice or three times a week.
I slowed down, because I realised there is no point pushing myself if nobody reads my work.
The new story is for a CrimeLit anthology. When I started, I wrote a series of stories about a PI called Patti 'Pat' Canella, they didn't sell, but were commended for authenticity by an ex-police sergeant from Adelaide. The stories are still for sale.
