Deadlines


     Many writers write to deadlines.  Theoretically, it is a good idea.  I tend to do well with setting a time to be done.  It is easy to work hard when you know that you will have a break, and goals are fun to accomplish.  For example, cleaning the house is so much more productive if I say, "I will see how much I can get done in x amount of time."
     On the other hand, writing is a little more artistic than cleaning your house.  I rarely try to fit art into a deadline. 
     I know some of you have written to a deadline, either professionally or in a project (like Nano).  What did you think of it?  Did it make things harder or easier?  Were you able to accomplish your goals?  How did you feel about your end product?
