Malcolm Gladwell, a guest on my show, shared his writing process, which involves a lot of iteration and reflection. He reads, writes, thinks, and gathers more information, and takes feedback from others seriously. He emphasizes the importance of sitting with what you've written to ensure it communicates what you believe. As for TV writing, Brian Koppelman, another guest, said that the actors physicalize what they write, and that they put obstacles in front of the characters to make the story interesting. He also noted that recognizing power dynamics is important in any career.
