the pen is mightier than the spork: The Big Writing FAQ

So James Moran, who wrote one of my very favorite Doctor Who episodes, gets asked a lot of questions about how to Make It as a writer, and has condensed down all his best advice into one big FAQ.  Some very good advice in here, all told in a no-bullshit-here-it-is manner:

“And remember – any writing info I give, that’s purely specific to me. Feel free to follow it, or completely ignore it, it’s just what works for me. If you want my advice, then here it is, do with it as you wish. There will be some swearing. I’m not going to beat around the bush here, because I’d just be wasting everyone’s time, especially yours. If you want to be told that you’re brilliant and talented, go and ask your mum. She loves you.”
