What REALLY Happens When Writing Under Deadlines

Step 1: Write that deadline down somewhere you can see it. Your phone. Your wall. All over your arms.

Step 2: Break your project into manageable chunks. Maybe just two pages a day. Maybe set a specific day aside just to write.

Step 3: Inevitably procrastinate

Step 4: Regret step 3

Step 5: Pretend that you “work better under pressure” when you know it’s a lie.

Step 6: Look at deadline.

Step 7: Accept your fate with what you’ve got

Step 8: Turn it in

Step 9: Promise that you’re never going to do this again.

Step 10: Search up self-help blogs for “Recovery for a Chronic Procrastinator”.
