Dan Harmon’s Writing Advice

Over the years, TVWriter™ has written or reprinted a ton of posts and articles on Dan Harmon (Community, Rick and Morty). Last year he lowered his profile a bit, but by no means have we exhausted the vault of Dan Harmon Speaks To Writers About So Many Things We Otherwise Might Never Know.

In fact, here’s a previously unknown (to this TVWriter™ minion) gem, found on YouTube…cuz where else would Dan Harmon be?

Cartoon: ‘the beloved book’

As far as we at TVWriter™ are concerned, nobody anywhere communicates the feelings creativity arouses in both audience and creator as well as Grant Snider, philosopher-cartoonist extraordinaire.

For example:

Grant’s new book, his first for children, will be published soon. You can pre-order it HERE.

While you’re at it, you can find more of Grant’s extraordinary perception of human creativity at Incidental Comics, HERE

And if you haven’t already done so (how could you not?) buy Grant’s other wonderful book, The Shape of Ideas, HERE

What’s It Like to Write for ‘Late Night with Seth Meyers?

At last, a video about writing, by writers, genuinely lives up to its promise to take us behind the scenes. Now that this TVWriter™ minion has watched this long but potent lesson, I might even start watching the show.

Um, it’s still on the air, right? Huh? Is it?

LB’S NOTE: How the %$#! did I forget to include this in Monday’s article? Major apologies for the oversight, but at least it’s here now. Keep on carrying on, bros and sisters.
