I learned so much from her that it’s hard to answer this question on paper. It would take too long! Writing-wise: I learned to never cut a joke, try to refrain from putting a character in a funny shirt only to make a joke about the shirt you put him in, and that words like “Anyway” or “Besides” aren’t really used by humans in everyday conversation to start a new topic.

Anyway… In a broader sense, she taught me – through example – what it means to work hard. Oh, and I also learned that I will never be as good as a writer as Tina Fey. She doesn’t tell you that but she shows you, with her eyes.
