I think journalism is useful training for a writer in the way it takes the preciousness out of the pragmatic side of the craft.
For me, I was literally trying to stay afloat. I never actually thought I would get my own sketch show. So the idea that one day I would have my own show is pretty wild. But once I got it, I thought, 'Yeah, this is exactly what I always wanted to do.'
I quit my job, and went ashore to become a writer.
