This writing secret could change your life!

In a May 2, 2021 interview with The New Yorker, comedy writer John Swartzwelder shares how he consistently churned out award-winning scripts for “The Simpsons”:

I have a trick that makes things easier for me. Since writing is very hard and rewriting is comparatively easy and rather fun, I always write my scripts all the way through as fast as I can, the first day, if possible…. Then the next day, when I get up, the script’s been written. It’s lousy, but it’s a script. The hard part is done…. All I have to do from that point on is fix it. So I’ve taken a very hard job, writing, and turned it into an easy one, rewriting, overnight.
