One of the toughest things about tv writing is getting the shit kicked out of your script, only to have to come back the next morning with the same script, only better...

How was your day?

EDIT: Okay, thanks mates...pouting behind me - 8 pages in...22 more to go. Just have to keep saying: "It will be better for it." And it will.

But if it was easy, then everybody could do it.

Back on the horse!

Back!

Shine the light, man.

You're fighting the good fight - and you at least have a script to get the shit kicked out of... :)

Don't let the bastards get you down. It's only TV... :)

Remember Stephen King writing in his laundry room.

You can conjure what you need!

Wallow, I say. Wallow, and then wallow some more. Then, stop wallowing and get to typin'! We believe in you!

Maybe you should try DMc's drinking and working strategy?

Count your blessings ... you're employed and at home. And you are a great writer. Or they wouldn't have hired you, right?

In the immortal words of Rob Schneider in pretty much every Adam Sandler movie, YOU CAN DO IT!

I should really clarify...I can't actually write when I'm drunk.

The giggle juice only comes in handy in the "idea- generating" stage.

Caroline said...

DMc, and you call yourself an Irishman. Pshah.

I am actually the opposite to you ... ideas stone cold sober but I can write like a demon when I've got a good pinot grigio buzz going.

Glad all's well in the world of Will again :-)

'Hanx... to all for helping me up off the floor to get the job done...it's the gig (and also the title of a wicked live album by Brit punkers Stiff Little Fingers)
