Writing Process: How I Write for TV

Like many writers, I don’t really love the process of writing. It almost always feels like a chore and I live in a constant state of writer’s block.

So then what’s the point, right? Why do something that leaves you teetering on the edge of your sanity on a daily basis? There are other things you could be doing with your life. There is food to be eaten, Netflix to be binged.

The thing is, everything you do as a writer, all of that work and stress and frustration, is for the final product. That moment when you can’t even believe that this thing came from you, or that it’s a real thing that actually exists. You do it because you’re building worlds from scratch and bringing people to life.

TV is a team sport, but it starts with the writer. Your ideas, your words, your process. Here’s mine:
