Deadline...? What deadline...?
Caught a smashing article in The Times Magazine last weekend: Robert Crampton's Beta Male column.
Now, I know I have problems sticking to publishing deadlines, but Robert has taken it to a whole new level.
In 1999, he signed a contract to produce a book for Transworld. He's now happy to report that publication date is next month..!
His account of the journey from signature to shelf is a hoot.
It reminds me of the quote by Richard Adams. “I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.”
