I really didn't want to do this, but I just couldn't see how I'd finish Doorways by the end of the mouth. I still have to work through crits for most of the stories and that means that my crit partners have to read my work.
They have lives. Most of them are recently published or working to get their work published. Some are doing both at the same time.
So in the scope of things, my book (in comparison to theirs) had a lower priority. Which is fine.
It just made sticking to the deadline impossible.
Especially since I haven't even sent out the ms to Beta readers.
So yeah... I gave myself two months extra. Hopefully that will be enough.
How's your writing coming along? Anyone publishing or editing?
