This is Nick from New Girl. (Which by the way is an amazing show. It’s hilarious and flips the Maniac Pixie Dream Girl trope around.) He has… issues.
He also happens to be a writer.
He’s determined to finish his zombie novel.
He has writing idols, like we do.
He knows the pain of research.
He cheats on his word count.
And he understands that means a lot of typos and weird word choices.
He has the perfect response when people ask how your manuscript is going.
He knows what being a writer is all about.
In short, we are all Nick Miller.
