I just really can never get enough of these two. I'm a big fan of the last-minute panic technique. If only I could create that for myself on a daily basis...
Melissa Rosenberg is the wonderful lady who brought you "Dexter," "Jessica Jones," and the "Twilight" series. She's got some great words of advice here. You can always start something.
