Last week I had a wonderful journey back through Scotland. I'd finished my work on APB in Dundee and was heading back to Bournemouth. But why head straight back? I'm keen to always look around and explore. So should anyone involved in the creative arts. Dashing about should be for other people, not us. That's why I've always defended the red circle part of the Scriptwriter's Life diagram so vehemently, the part on growing your character.
All I can say is - art isn't about getting from A to B in the quickest time.
