Woody Allen Documentary | American Masters | PBS

New Woody Allen documentary coming this Sunday, with great reviews.

This quote really struck me:

The day that he finishes editing a film is the day he starts typing the script of the next. He never takes any time off.

So much of creative work is about just being in motion—it’s really inertia that leads to block. When I finished my last book, I hit a long period afterwards where I wasn’t doing any real work—trying to avoid that with this book. I wish I could be like one of those chain smokers who lights their next cigarette with the last one…

Then again, there’s a lot to be said for sabbaticals, too.
