Description - How to Write Everything by David Quantick

Part creative writing guide, part memoir, this is a handy, humorous guide to writing for television from the mind that brought you Brass Eye, Smack the Pony, Grumpy Old Men and Harry Hill's TV Burp.

How To Write Everything is the ultimate writer's handbook. It tells you about every aspect of writing, from having an idea to getting the idea out into the world and getting paid for it, too. It covers everything from journalism to screen-writing, from speeches to sketches, from sitcoms to novels. With thirty years' experience as an award-winning script-writer, journalist, author and broadcaster David Quantick is ideally suited, as a writer, to write this definitive writer's guide to writing...everything.
