The Bare-bones Sketch Writing Challenge

Don’t overcomplicate your comedy writing. On this episode of Instead of Writing, I’m trying to strip away all of the crutches and force you to have two characters hash it out.

All writers have big ideas. I’ve just seen too many writers starting out in comedy allow those big ideas to block their progress toward writing a solid sketch.

This challenge takes about forty minutes, and that’s the point.

Check out the video to see how it works.
