Ricky Gervais Tells A Story About How He Learned To Write

Did you know Fast Company now has a special “Create” site, dedicated to the arts and creativity? And that there’s a special subsection there called Creation Stories, where writers and other creatives share their stories? From the site:

“Stories are an elemental form of human communications–they are how we understand each other and the world. With that in mind, we wanted to bring you…great stories!”

“Creation Stories are stories from the minds and mouths of some of the most creative people around–stories that entertain while shedding some light on the creative process.”

The series launched with Ricky Gervais talking about the most important lesson he ever learned about writing. From the site:

“Here, in the inaugural episode, Ricky Gervais (whose new Netflix series, Derek, debuts September 12) shares a story about an early creative turning point that forever informed the way he writes and works. It has to do with a teacher, a cheeky kid who maybe watched too much TV, an elderly neighbor and an unexpected creative lesson. Of course, it being Ricky Gervais, he delivers the story with some inimitable extras.”
