At the last minute - again!

I finally sent off my short story submission to From The Asylum's anthology, 'Things aren't what they seem' today - the last day they are accepting entries. I'm glad I got it in and thanks to Madeira for giving me the idea for the story (it was a long one coming) but once again I've scrapped in at the last minute of a deadline. I wonder what publishers/editors think of these last minute stories popping into their in boxes. Does it prejudice them against the author or is that what deadlines are there for. As long as you are on the right side of the closing date, what does it matter?

It shouldn't matter, that's what deadlines are for!

They are just as likely to get good stories last in as first!
