Thinking about my (needlessly complicated) process in writing my play 'Good Times Never Seemed So Good' for this year's Glasgow Comedy Festival, I thought this article by artist Adrian Tomine explaining how he came to draw his first cover for the New Yorker was of interest. Below is one quote.

"But I do think that getting those bad ideas down on paper, in a sense, clears the way for better ones."

I relate to this, as looking back through my early notes I can see a lot of plot points or character ideas that I didn't use, but I probably landed on the ones I did by first scribbling down several that I would ultimately throw out, or forget about about.
