Sometimes Book Deadlines Murder Your Blog Schedule

Why didn’t my blog post go out at the usual 5am this morning?

Because I totally failed you all am on deadline.

And sometimes you have to drop the ball in order to pick up a different one.

That is all. ๐Ÿ™ˆ


(I’d say “I’m sorry,” but I also know that all of you would just say, “Don’t be! Now get back to writing!” because you’re awesome like that.)




About Nadine Brandes

Nadine Brandes is an adventurer, fusing authentic faith with bold imagination. She never received her Hogwarts letter, but rest assured sheโ€™s no Muggle (and would have been in Ravenclaw House, thank you very much.) This Harry Potter super-nerd has been known to eat an entire package of Oreos (family size) by herself, and watches Fiddler on the Roof at least once a year. She writes about brave living, finding purpose, and other worlds soaked in imagination. Her dystopian trilogy (The Out of Time Series) challenged her to pursue shalom, which is now her favorite word (followed closely by bumbershoot.) When Nadineโ€™s not taste-testing a new chai or editing fantasy novels, she and her knight-in-shining armor (nickname: โ€œhubbyโ€) are out pursuing adventures.

  2. We’re cheering you on (my two cats and I)! Deadlines . . . such fun, aren’t they???

    • Aww thank you! And thank you Hannah’s cats! ๐Ÿ˜› Deadlines & “fun” don’t usually go together. But I guess…I guess there can be fun aspects? Like the fact that when I’m on deadline I don’t care what I eat so I live off of Oreos…? ๐Ÿ˜›
