Today we talked a lot about the writing process and creativity. I wanted to spend more time on actually writing for TV, but I go where the questions lead…
Some things we chatted about:
- How to come up with sketch ideas.
- A tip or two on how to write better sketches.
- How creativity works.
- How Bob Gale and Robert Zemeckis wrote Back to The Future.
- What kind of shows I like to write.
The overall message of today’s show? Creativity comes from doing. Start writing today. It may start out terrible, but no one became an amazing writer over night. Except maybe Tina Fey.
I want to thank everyone who joined and for all the questions! Tweet at me if you want to continue the conversation or you have ideas for tomorrow’s episode!
