Fronting Adweek's Creative 100 issue is none other than the beer-loving Mindy Kaling. The Mindy Project creator and lead actress discusses the show's future on Hulu, and how she'd love to start a fashion line of her own. Most importantly, Kaling reveals where her writing magic happens, which, ironically, takes place in her bed. She told Adweek, "I always write in exactly the same place, which is sitting in my bed, with two pillows behind me. I've written 50 television scripts and two books on this one place on my bed!" Mindy Kaling, a master at staying awake while comfy.
