Today needed an hour less sleep than yesterday. Must be recovering.

If there was a single thing, just ONE THING I learned in that writer’s room…if I could choose only one…

I think I’d choose something that related not just to the “room” but to my daily life. Here it is:

The Mastermind. Also known as Brainstorming. Or a Think Tank. Or writer’s room.

That’s the external aspect: “two or more people working in a spirit of harmony to accomplish a common goal.”
