Teen Scouts help the Mill Valley Masketeers by cutting hundreds of t-shirts to make ear ties. Led by local Mill Valley citizen Lee Budish, people from around the community came together like the Scouts, to donate fabric, cut, sew and deliver over 14,000 masks to those in need.
I was thrilled to get 2 magazine assignments from FACES magazine on Dec. 14th, due on Jan 3rd, 2016. But what a horrific crazy time. The holidays were approaching and I was coordinating 2 – 3 SCBWI events plus we were having 17 people on Christmas Eve, 25 on Christmas Day and flying out to Kauai on Dec. 26 – Jan.5 (totally exhausted.)
But I had prepared detailed outlines for the article queries and extensive reference sourcing for these two articles. I worked day and night to get the articles done by Dec. 23rd so I could enjoy my family, church and holidays.
It goes to show, deadline pressure, motivation and preparation are key to getting the writing done! Now if I would only remember that in my daily writing efforts!!!!!
