The $40 million dollar piece of writing
February 02, 2010
Who says good writing doesn’t pay?
That’s the question speechwriter Tim Hayes answers in his instructive analysis of Conan O’Brien’s public, written rejection of NBC’s proposal to move his talk show to a later slot.
Hayes credibly reckons that the masterly prose went a long way toward making O’Brien a cool $40 million.
Not bad for a day’s writing.
