I don’t leave the desk and I still sit here from 8am till 6pm Monday to Thursday. The misconception about writer’s block is that you can’t think of anything to write, but the real manifestation is that the words just come much more slowly. I often find it’s a sign that you’re actually writing the wrong story. My best stuff has always come incredibly fast and, ironically, the stuff that looks rushed is the material I laboured over. But we can’t get too precious about writer’s block. It’s often an excuse. I’ve never met a surgeon of an accountant to has Doctor’s Block or Counter’s Block. It’s a little self-indulgent when you think about it.(less)

It’s always billionaires or Thunder Gods or super-soldiers in these stories and I thought it would be interesting to do something like Forrest Gump, a kind of Frank Capra superhero story, instead. I got the idea from a man I met at a place where I volunteer who does one good deed every day and is the basis of this character too. He’s the purest, most decent character I’ve ever created and quite different from something like Hit-Girl or Eggsy in Kingsman.(less)
