D is for Deadlines

is for Deadlines.

Deadlines are things that everyone needs. Some people can use to them their advantage while others dread them. I personally love deadlines as it sets me a goal as to when I need to do things by. For today I have compiled a list of quotes on what writers think about deadlines, I hope you enjoy.


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


Artistic self-indulgence is the mark of an amateur. The temptation to make scenes, to appear late, to call in sick, not to meet deadlines, not to be organized, is at heart a sign of your own insecurity and at worst the sign of an amateur. – Harold Prince.


I always was an early-morning or late-night writer. Early morning was my favorite; late night was because you had a deadline. And at four in the morning, you make up some of your most absurd jokes. – Joss Whedon.


I work best after the deadline has passed, when I’m in a panic. – Tony Kushner.


Everybody in the real world will agree – the moment a project is behind deadline, quality assurance tends to go out the window. – Alan Cox.


Going off the grid is always good for me. It’s the way that I’ve started books and finished books and gotten myself out of deadline dooms and things. – Neil Gaiman.
