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.”

Quote of the Day: Lucy Vee

There’s absolutely no reason you can’t write in ANY genre if you are prepared to put the work in. Genre is craft. Craft can be learnt. So learn the conventions of the genre you want to write. Watch all the movies in that genre, big and small; read all the scripts. Go to events, learn about it. Read articles, blogs, soak it all up.
