Learning from the Masters: An Interview with William Goldman

William Goldman is one of the most successful and sage screenwriters currently working in Hollywood. He’s the scribe behind Maverick, The Princess Bride, Misery, Marathon Man, All the President’s Men, and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. In this interview, he covers the business and the craft of screenwriting as well as his own writing and life.

My favorite line: As a new writer, “you can only write what you give a shit about.”
