>Last Monday I got edits requested by my editor. She asked that I have them back in a week. Luckily, there weren't a lot of changes needed, so I thought, "No, problem." Until I got to some changes needed in a fight scene. Whoa! There was my problem. I'm not great with fight scenes. I can see them in my head, but getting it on paper is a different story. The largest portion of my time was spent trying to get it right. But I kept at it until I did what I needed to do.
This got me to thinking about the way I handle my writing. I wonder if I kept at it because there was a deadline involved? Usually, when I get stuck, I close the laptop and do something else until a way out comes to me. I didn't have that luxury this time.
How do you handle working on a deadline? Are they helpful, or do they stress you out?
