Writing Deadlines

Our writing friend posted this article recently. We thought you would like it too.

In the writing world, there are two kinds of deadlines: the ones imposed by others; and the ones imposed by you.

The deadlines that others set for you in your writing might include a contest entry date; a critique group submission due date; a timeframe for the submission of a proposal and first three chapters to an editor or agent following a contact at a writing conference such as the ACFW National Conference; a request for a full manuscript; the acceptance and signing of a contract; first draft approval; intermediate revisions; and final revisions prior to publication.

Each one of these deadlines is critical to the process of writing, of keeping everything flowing, and of ultimately achieving the goal, whether that be winning a contest, being a productive member of a critique group, acquiring an agent, or publication. Click here to learn more.
