Procrastinating With Rowan Atkinson

Came home late tonight to find that there was nothing on TV, as usual. Does watching the first season of Blackadder for the umpteenth time count as research?





There's the wonderful line: "Let all those who go to don armour tomorrow, remember to go before they don armour tomorrow."

Somewhere in there among all the episodes is one of my favourite lines: "Fortune vomits on my eiderdown once more."

Ah, who am I kidding? All the lines are quotable.

I feel as though I'm slacking off, yet truth be told I penned a few thousand words of dialogue between yesterday and today. All of my dialogue scenes start off the same way, as two or three talking heads in a void.

All along the margin I scribble "need tags!" and other notes like "link to later scene in Selonika" or "Arcturus makes a face here". Somehow, I can't seem to describe the characters' actions and focus on their words at the same time, though I do visualise their faces and movements as I write.

What kinds of drafting quirks does everyone else have?
