Dan Bucatinsky: “If you want to write…at least write for 15 minutes a day”

The Gracie Awards were held last night in Los Angeles, celebrating “outstanding programming for, by and about women.”

GalleyCat Editor Jason Boog was there on the red carpet chatting with established authors about how emerging writers can succeed in their trade. Does This Baby Make Me Look Straight? author and Scandal actor Dan Bucatinsky gave GalleyCat this advice:

Know what your point of view is and find a way to express it. Even if nobody’s paying you to do it. That’s the most important thing. If you want to sing, sing and find a venue for it. If you want to write, wake up every day and at least write for 15 minutes a day. Whoever you are, if you have a point of view and you want to have that voice expressed, find a way.
