Why I write slowly

The downside of writing SF is that just getting a character across town can spur your brain to go running off on tangents about currency systems and banking and a dozen other things that may not even show up in the story because you had to figure out whether he would have enough change in his pockets to take the tube.

The upside is coming up with things so delightfully mad you almost can't believe you're going to get away with putting them in, except that they make perfect sense in context.
