You’re in a bubble—a biodome, if you will. Pauly Shore’s even in it with you. Leave. Pop that bubble regularly or risk losing sight of its edges. Facebook, its own bubble, doesn’t count. Call your aunt in Albuquerque. FaceTime that friend in rural China. Literally just visit the Valley. Anything to remind you there’s a great, big un-botoxed world out there, where people care about things like high school sports, real weather, and family. Read the news. Then sure, use that to help write your pilot.
Contact the outside.
