Thanks for the great links. I'm currently trying to get through writers block and these links helped with my movie script I'm writing. You can check out my blog at moviement.blogspot.com

I just realised it's mostly television writing links but comedy is comedy, I suppose.

Good luck with beating the block, it's horrible, but sometimes the way to beat it is just to start writing that first draft and not worrying about if you're funny enough or have enough writing knowledge. It's all about re-writing anyway.

This is *exactly* what I was looking for. Currently writing my fifth novel and once its edited and sent off to the publishers, I want to plan out and write a six part comedy show and haven't a frigging scooby where to start. Brilliant, thankyou Robin.
