Writing is like having a poo…

I heartily recommend fellow writers to watch Charlie Brooker’s latest Screenwipe where he interviews various writers (Russell T Davies, Paul Abbott, Tony Jordan, Graham Linehan, Jesse Armstrong and Sam Bain) about their craft. Very inspiring and great to see how everyone differs, but the best quote from the whole show was Linehan’s analogy on writing:

“Writing is kind of like having a poo. It’s really hard if you don’t want to go, but there’s a time when you have to go.”

Genius. I’ve already printed it out and put it above my desk. Oh, and in the bathroom for the next time I’m in there with ‘Writer’s Block’…
