hard deadlines

11 May 2013: finish rewriting, editing, and proofreading Icarus.

12 May 2013: start deciding on my next big project.

31 May 2013: finish writing two of the following: Murrine, The Law of Accelerated Decay, Hecheto Welo (It Is Done Well), or the nameless demonic possession short story.

1 June 2013: begin my next big project.

What with work and extracurricular activities (read: boyfriend), I wonder if this deadline is too optimistic. I’m averaging two hours a day on writing, but that time can easily get pushed aside for other things, like sleep.
