Is it stressful to write under deadline?

It can be. I try really hard to finish books about a month ahead of when they’re actually due. It’s not always possible, but by setting myself a false deadline, I don’t freak out about the real one. Having said that, I’ve been known to get so wound up about my fake deadlines, my husband will ask me flat out, “Is this really due? Or are you making that up in your head?”
