Quote on Novel Writing by Neil Gaiman

“…writing a novel works best if you can do the same day over and over again. The closest you can come to Groundhog Day, you just repeat that day.”

-Neil Gaiman on The Tim Ferriss Show podcast

Despite his distaste for interviews, Neil Gaiman gracefully shares the development of his writing process and the creation story of the book and tv series Good Omens.

I remember reading Gaiman’s first Sandman comic books in college. Since, he has completed a variety of books and movie and television projects.

I was stoked to discover our writing processes are similar: handwriting the first draft late at night after the children are abed. He believes using a fountain pen helps the words flow.
