‘Your first draft will never be your last’: Sam Bain on writing

If you’ve attended the Creative Writing for Writers class on editing – the summer group took it this morning – you’ll remember this guy from the Charlie Brooker clip I like to show in that session (see my post of 22 February to replay the clip). He’s the one who says the secret of writing comedy is ‘work, endless work.’ Cheery sod, but he seems to know what he’s talking about. More of his advice can be found at the link below. He’s talking specifically about screenplays but it all rings true for any kind of writing.
