Moments of Agitation…

Louis CK ponders his writing habits

Great article with Louis C.K. in April’s Rolling Stone.

Stand out quote for me*:

When it’s time to write, I have one computer that has no ability to get on the Internet… if you put a couple of moves between you and that, you’ve got a fighting chance.

When I hit a stopping moment in what I’m writing, a moment of agitation – that itch always leads to a brand new thing, to inspiration. But if you bail out and buy a product online, you’re robbing yourself.

…The worst thing happening to his generation is that they’re taking discomfort away from themselves.”

Got to lean into the fear.
