Trees Don't Need No Stinkin' Deadlines
(with apologies to Joyce Kilmer)
I think that I shall never see
A time again when I’ll be deadline free.
A year filled with adrenalin I create,
Because I always procrastinate.
I look at the calendar each and every day,
And lift my eyes to the publishing gods to pray.
This year I’ll be better, cross my heart, I swear,
But three books a year is truly a bear.
Sometimes I’m sure I’ve gone insane,
That stability and common sense have hopped a train.
Stamina, perseverance and commitment are the key,
And the dream that one day on the NYT Bestsellers List I’ll be.
