Interview with Oliver Jeffers on Flic Magazine, by Sarah Maclean
How do you divide your concentration?
I write a lot of lists and give myself deadlines, even when there’s not one I’ll force one on myself, and I’ll travel backwards from dates.
Is your mind always thinking and churning on your work and stories?
Yes very much so. Normally I’ll have a notebook in my pocket and will write down ideas as soon as they occur, or think of a better solution for something. Wherever I am I’ll always do it. For me I have to log everything down because of how good an idea it might be as everything in my head has got an equal chance of being forgotten. My hands struggle to keep up with my head at the best of times. So it’s very important to document.
