Clearly option three is my best bet…

I’ve started to wonder what writing is going to be like for me after this project is over when the deadlines are gone.  It’s going to be weird; I’ve gotten very used to my current method.  And, unfortunately for me, that method consists of waiting until the weekend before a deadline and squeezing thousands of words out in a ridiculous pressure and caffeine fueled sprint.  Even now I’m sitting here, and I know I could start in on Matthew and Epp, but I’m not.  Part of me wants to wait until the weekend.  I guess you could argue that if it’s not broke I shouldn’t fix it, but this seems a bit silly to me.  And, yes, time away from the keyboard is important as it allows the story to solidify.  But still…

I can distinctly remember in the weeks before I wrote, “Second Choice,”  that I was freaking out because I didn’t have an idea yet for my next story, and that it wasn’t until Thursday before the deadline weekend that things actually clicked and I had my idea.  So maybe waiting is the right choice.

Or maybe I should shut up and stop thinking about this so much.
