Deadlines

I like deadlines. So often with my work the nearest I have to a deadline is 'as soon as possible'. But that really doesn't motivate me. I faff around doing nothing, or just can't get my head round what I'm supposed to be doing. As I've been doing all week.

But then I'm given a deadline. It's concrete; I'm aiming at something.
Now I can work.

I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.

I believe he was still busy writing the later scenes in some radio episodes of Hitchhikers' Guide to the Galaxy while the earlier scenes were already on air. And at one point a producer locked him in a hotel room and wouldn't let him leave till he finished whatever he was supposed to be writing.
