Except when that's what the deadline is when you accept the assignment.
So after pounding out 600 words by 1 a.m., I slept on the review, then checked it at 6 a.m., more than a little groggy after only 5 hours of relatively restless sleep. (Taylor Swift dreams most of the night, go figure that.)
But the review is in, just waiting for the editor's workover and blessing before it goes up on The Sacramento Bee's website.
The review is a web-only piece, thus the early morning deadline. Have to catch people before they head out to Sunday breakfast.
Me? A nap is probably in order before launching the rest of the day.
