I am looking at deadlines for a series of commitments...it's not so bad now that the first one — a board retreat I was organizing — is done.
The next deadline is for a major-donor "thank you" party I'm organizing (May 11).
After that, it's a deadline for a magazine article (new publication, major article) on May 30. (Yes! Folklife weekend!)
Then there's a deadline for a short story for a writer's workshop later in the summer (due June 15).
I think it says something that I have been completely freaking out about the entertainment events but am actually looking forward to doing the writing. Writing doesn't require cleaning the house, subduing the cats, mowing the lawn, getting dressed up, being diplomatic. In fact, quite the opposite.
