It is one thing to procrastinate, it’s another thing to move slowly and gently forward with your art and craftwork.
Like everyone else, creative personalities want to be responsible, understand the importance of commitment and deadlines. Yet can you really plunk good art, fine craft, and inspired vision on the doorstep of a rigid cut-off date?
If you want to move from the realm of hobbyist to professional with your creative bad self, then you will have to adhere to, and balance the world of the creative personality and business policies and norms.
With that said, I caution you to not let go of your art, your craft, your vision, your talent until it is your perfection. A missed deadline won’t kill you. Careless, sloppy, rushed, uninspired, ill-conceived, and bland art will. It will hurt your reputation and ultimately suffocate your creative spirit. Your creative work is finished only when it is finished, not before then. Never before then.
