The Reveal--The Deadline
Be honest, isn't that the perfect time to cut her head off? LOL! She gets her veil out of the way, revealing her neck, doesn't suspect or fight back because she's taken by surprise...perfect! Yup, that's when my story is ready. I call it deadline ready. You can always find one more sentence to tweak, one more scene to enhance, one more plot to twist, but sooner or later, you have to let it go! So just as in the short story I have being released on October 15th, I had to let it go because if I didn't it would not have been the perfect moment--the deadline! I revised it a zillion times--mostly because it was my first horror genre and my first short story, but also because I am never satisfied. Ah, the horrors of being a perfectionist! What about you?

Ah, deadlines, the perfect cure for perfectionism. My IWSG tee shirt is fading. I should get blue this time.

Deadline ready! Perfect. Tick tock. Mine's coming up.

As a fellow perfectionist, I can relate! Good thing we have deadlines to prompt us to let go.

Deadlines, yep, that's a popular one today ;)

I love deadlines. Give me unlimited time and I'll waste it. Best wishes on your short story.
