Deadly Deadline

I had it all mapped out.

By end of December, I should have finished two chapters. The deadline for my new book isn't till end of February so I declared, "I have enough time."

Then, bang! My trusty computer, Blackie, zonked out on Christmas Day.  I lost two days.

My new computer wouldn’t connect to the internet. I lost another day.

Then an event was scheduled from out of the bluest blue. One other day gone.

A few more calls I didn’t expect took two more days.

And now I am cramming on a computer (meet Pinky) that's running on an unfamiliar Windows 8; yet I am blogging.

Maybe I should stop here and see to my deadly deadline. Grace, I need extra grace, Lord.
