Jonathan Ames’ Network-ed Blunt Talk

Blunt Talk creator/showrunner/writer, author, and Novel-T Second Baseman Jonathan Ames knows when to follow his own recommendations. He advises, “[I]f there’s a style of someone that you like, if something appeals to you, you should try to write in that style…You should write what excites you, but put it through your own spirit.” Such wisdom enables Ames to channel Network, Paddy Chayefsky and Sidney Lumet’s brilliant media satire, into the first two episodes of the new Starz series without compromising his own comic voice.

I discuss Jonathan Ames’ hilarious new show in the latest Novel-T blog.

Novel-T’s Living Author Collection is on sale throughout the weekend.

Patrick Ridings attempts to remain creative by writing whenever possible. His first published work appeared in Philly Beer Scene's June/July 2012 issue. Mr. Ridings believes all writer bios read like Stan Lee's Dr. Doom dialogue from 1962.
