I've heard from some authors that writing professionally involves a lot of deadlines. I, personally, am on both sides.
I'm a whole brain-er, which means I can learn and work equally with both of the hemispheres of my brain, whereas most people are left brain-ers. How do I know? I took a test. So that means I can work under both conditions.
For projects and homework assignmnets, I work better under pressure and get things done nice and quick.
But when it comes to writing, I take it slow and only write when inspiration and motivation kicks in, or when I have nothing else to do. I'm kind of like the leisurely, relaxed Irish people.
When my idol, Enya, signed her music contract with Warner Bros, she made sure it said that she would have no deadlines to when she had to submit her music, which I think is awesome.
I have this feeling, however, that the Publishing and writing world doesn't work like that.
I'm feeling in between, I like deadlines on lots of things, but I'm not sure I like deadlines on writing. I'm sort of half-half.
So what do you think? Do you like deadlines or not?
