Quote of the Day: William Goldman

Writing is finally about one thing: going into a room alone and doing it. Putting words on paper that have never been there in quite that way before. And although you are physically by yourself, the haunting Demon never leaves you – the knowledge of your own terrible limitations, your hopeless inadequacy, the impossibility of ever getting it right. No matter how diamond-bright your ideas are dancing in your brain, on paper they are earthbound.

Quote of the Day: Ian McEwan

Screenwriting is an opportunity to fly first class, be treated like a celebrity, sit around the pool and be betrayed.
