I’M A BIG BELIEVER IN WORKING QUICKLY, BECAUSE I THINK IT’S HARDER-THOUGH NOT IMPOSSIBLE-TO BE PRETENTIOUS WHEN YOU’RE MOVING REALLY FAST.
â€”Moviemaker Steven Soderbergh
From Interview magazine website
I once got bogged down in the middle of my first novel Revelation. I decided that on the following day, if I could get 7 pages of any quality cranked out, I would then take the rest of the day off for nothing but leisure. No more work, no errands. I figured I might get it done in 7 hours.
The following day I wrote 7 pages in an hour and 45 minutes and they were better than anything I’d written in weeks. The book really came to life again.
