Deadline Madness

by Kiersten Hallie Krum

I’m on deadline, my first deadline, well, my first hard deadline for a novel. Yes, I said it, a novel. It’s coming (and so is the announcement). So soon, that I’m deliriously behind schedule. My schedule, the one I set for myself, but still.

I do not look anywhere near this good when I’m working at Starbucks. Trust me on this.

This weekend, I’m attempting to write 15,000 words in three days. I’m a little more than halfway there at 12:18 AM on the third day, and I’m pretty sure I’m not gonna rise again, though I hafta, because I gots to sit my ass back down at Starbucks tomorrow and crank out those last words. (I was there for 12 hours on Saturday, no exaggeration, and I swear the manager was about to turn out the lights and offer me a blanket right before I started to pack it up.)

Which is probably why I now look damn close to this:

Actually, this cat looks better than me at this point.

So I apologize, lovely Lady Smutters, for leaving you high and dry for fresh content with which you may kick off your Monday Monday. (Bah dahBah, dah, dah, dah.) (OK, fine, I put in a link for those of you who’ve never heard of the Mamas and Papas and are now wondering what the bloody hell I’m bah dah, bah, dah, dah, dahing about, and dear, sweet, holy, baby Jesus, how have you never heard of the Mamas and Papas?!)

Once I finish this friggin’ delightful book and get it to my editor, I promise to put enough brain cells together to be back in Lady Smut fighting form. How else are you going to know when to go buy it, right?

Until then, here, have a cookie.

Can anyone see the cookie? I’m a tad distracted…

Now don’t you feel better?

Follow Lady Smut. We’ll soothe all your cookie urges.
