That British humor always gets me. Ricky Gervais is perhaps the most prolific British comedian and screenwriter today. He’s crafted such memorable shows as The Office, Extras, and Derek, to name a few.
When it comes to writing advice, I can think of nothing better than what Gervais offers here. This is not to say you shouldn’t expand your horizons and subject matter, but whatever you write should exude authenticity. A unique, natural color to your writing will already contain its own individuality.
Britain’s best, Ricky Gervais, drops a gem of writing advice.
