Procrastination: my favorite friend
This is possibly on of my worst faults. If I know about a project in advance, I’ll mull it over. I’ll brainstorm. I’ll percolate.
But until the deadline looms, I procrastinate.
Daughter’s birthday? I’ve got time. Family event? It will get done. Book deadline? We’re good. I can juggle several projects and still get it done.
Until crunch time. When it’s cutting it close, that’s when I’m inspired and when most of my best work comes. That last week before the deadline is busy, intense, but also lights my fire. And then when I'm done, I give myself at least a day or two of well-deserved rest. Ha!
The hero of my December 2014 release, A Cowboy for Christmas, has a deadline looming… sort of. Ricky White has a secret, and he wants to tell the heroine before she finds out his part in the disaster that cost her a major life change. But when he starts falling for her, it’s already too late… This is the fifth book in my Wyoming Legacy series. Her Convenient Cowboy and Her Cowboy Deputy will be out in 2015.
What about you? Do you work well under pressure? Or do you hate deadlines? Leave a comment and let me know!
Fun note: I was over at Amazon today and saw A Cowboy for Christmas was on sale, discounted to $3.79. If you’d like to try this book, now is a good time to buy!
After an accident leaves her injured, Daisy Richards stays secluded at her family's Wyoming ranch to avoid the town's gawking stares. Yet handsome cowboy newcomer Ricky White insists she can do anything she dreams—ride a horse, decorate a Christmas tree…even steal a man's heart.
Once a reckless cad, Ricky is to blame for what happened to Daisy. Now reformed, he wants to make amends by setting things right for his boss's beautiful daughter in time for the holidays. But Daisy doesn't know Ricky's responsible for her predicament. When the truth is revealed, will he lose the greatest gift he's ever received—her trust?
