I discovered last night that the thing I thought was due April 7 is due the week of April 7. This fills me with dread/delight. Sort of like if a drug addict who wants to quit discovers a big crack rock in their sock drawer. I suspect I'll be smoking this deadline extension and hating myself.

That's like getting an extra week to do that stupid report in history class - which I STILL waited until he night before to begin.

Don't do it Alison...As a fellow procrastinating writer, if you use the extension, there is no turning back! You will be doomed to a life of always needing one...trying to get it at all costs! Just put the extension on the ground and walk away! This is an intervention!

I totally agree with Ted from accounting! Don't do it! I procrastinate all the time though, and I can see how you'd like extra days to goof around. I've been doing that all my life.

admitting you have a deadline extension problem is the first step
