So today I made the choice (mistake?) to tell my boyfriend that I was going to try and have the first draft of my novel done by my birthday, which is in the beginning of March. He laughed, and then said, well, you better actually do it then! No procrastinating! Then I tried to allow myself some grace time and say that maybe I’ll make the deadline his birthday (which is two weeks later). Again, laughter and saying NO PROCRASTINATING!
Now I will have endless reminders from him to write like crazy until my birthday……oh geez.
