Are you wondering why I sing the praises of editorial deadlines? Well, I have a lot of experience with other people missing deadlines, and I know personally how much it can affect many facets of a project. There’s nothing worse than someone else’s inability to meet deadline messes up the work that you’re doing. The truth is, we all have a lot going on in our lives. People are busy, and things get messy and unpredictable – that’s life. You just can’t let your life get in the way of due dates.
