Good advice

b3ta's Rob Manuel on writing teh funnies on the interwebs. Lots of useful tips, the main one being: "Crank it out as fast as you can, don't worry about perfection". Not everything you write will be funny, so improve your hit rate by increasing your output.

This links in to an article about creativity on Marc Andreesen's blog:
Quality of output does not vary by age... which means, of course, that attempting to improve your batting average of hits versus misses is a waste of time as you progress through a creative career. Instead you should just focus on more at-bats -- more output. Think about that one.

Marc Andreesen was one of the founders of Netscape, back when they were a browser company.
