I always seem to write better when I am under the pressure of a deadline. Case in point: I am taking a creative writing course this term and our first assignment was given on Thursday. It's due tomorrow and I had been trying to get it done all weekend. At least 4 times I crumbled up the page and tossed it. I didn't even look at it yesterday. Tonight, I sat down, opened Word and wrote the assignment in one try (with a bit of editting). Does this happen to anyone else? I find that I work better when I'm doing any type of work when there's the pressure of a deadline. It's not just with writing. It really bugs me sometimes when I want to get things done without stressing up to that dreaded deadline but like this weekend, the ideas just don't flow.
