3 weeks out ...

I have to submit my proposal in 21 days.

This is a self-imposed deadline, but I shared this self-imposed deadline with my contact at my first-choice publisher. So, it's a real deadline, and it's no one's fault but my own. I thought this was wise--that it would force me to get my work done. Instead, it's backed me into a corner, and I'm panicking.  

So, I'm trying to take the kind advice offered by some friends and a few thoughtful strangers. It's time to suck it up, spew it out, and send it out. No more dithering.
