Steven Moffat on Writer’s Block

Whether you think that Steven Moffat is the best writer ever or that he’s is spoiling Doctor Who and Sherlock at the same time, you’ve gotta admit that the guy is a genius. I was watching a little interview on BBC Writersroom the other day, and he said something about writer’s block that really struck a chord with me:

“Writer’s block – embrace it, know it. It is your internal editor. It is telling you that you haven’t got it right yet, that you can write what you want to write, or the scene that you’re going to write, or the chapter you’re going to write – one reason, it’s not *right* yet. So listen to that voice and sit in agony until it all blossoms in your head. It’s not a fault, it’s just that you haven’t got it yet.”
