This moment of panic has been brought to you by RL  
Oh dear God in Heaven, what the hell was I thinking signing up for a fic exchange when I am seriously over-scheduled in RealLife and every single freaking deadline is happening this week?

2 screenplays for the high school ministry that must be done tomorrow 'cause we are filming on Sunday... status: one done, one not.

2 song parodies written for above noted screenplays, music downloaded and karaoke version downloaded as well... status: one done, one not. (These need to get to the actors like yesterday so they can rehearse...)

One article written for church newsletter due yesterday... status: done!

One article written for the church website due Wednesday... status: done, waiting for accompanying document from one other person, then ready for Webmaster!

Child who has major assignment due Wednesday and he needs the computer to complete... status: Well, I haven't yet committed infanticide...

(Can I mention the minor details of oh, y'know, having a JOB and needing to feed the above mentioned child, launder clothes, take elderly mother to the dentist today, take dog to vet, give an inspirational reading at a ceremony tomorrow honoring our outstanding patients and staff this past year, serving on a committee at church that currently has to meet weekly on Wed. nights-- and trying to get at least 6 hours of sleep in so I can keep on going in the manner of madness to which I've become accustomed...)

And the sword dangling over my head: One 3keysficxchnge story, due this Thursday... status: plotted, intro written, well into meat of story but good heavens, why oh why do my characters always need to be complicated with lots of back story and why do they always seem to take over the dialog and run away with the story? I'm the author dammit! I should have SOME say, y'know! Sigh.

Well, if everyone else submits theirs in time, I just blew my cover... but I had to (choose appropriate verb) wibble/bitch/whine/blather...

Crikey! What a to-do list! You'll pull through with flying colors, I'm sure of it. Good luck with all the craziness. You can do it!!

I'll pull through... I'll be rocking in a corner and sucking my thumb, but I'll pull through!

First off, BREATHE!

Inhale, exhale, and repeat.


Otay. I know, you're freaking, and it's hard to prioritize when there is so much!

Just got my 3keys story back from my beta, so I should make it, but just barely! I was kind of hoping they'd give out a group-wide extension for say, a week? Wouldn't that be nice? LOL.

Best of luck with the rest. It really bites when we try to juggle too much! I vote for quitting the job, myself, but then those pesky bills get in the way... drat!

Yeah, the job does interfere with all my grandiose plans... too bad I gotta be a responsible parent, eh?

I'm not freaking so much as just getting annoyed with myself; All the RealLife stuff has to take priority, so I have to let the story take the bottom rung. But it just grates on me that I have to miss the deadline. That is so not on! I'm a deadline kinda girl usually.
