On deadline

One of the aspects of blogging I enjoy is the lack of deadlines. I write when the inspiration strikes, and to the length I choose.

This is particularly delightful for me because for 25 years I've made my living as a writer-for-hire, cranking out what one of my former employers called "wordage" on deadline and often to strict word counts.

Next month is the 25th reunion of my graduate journalism program. It'll be the first college or grad school reunion I've ever attended. Wouldn't you know they sent out a biography form, complete with deadline? Your professional life, in 325 words or less.
