#Quote
1I love my job, it's a really hard job and there are parts of it that suck. Your [a screenwriter's] job is to distort, edit, reformat and re-equip your passion, your babies, your scripts to suit a perceived corporate and commercial need. That's what being a screenwriter is, it's not writing scripts. Anyone can write scripts, being a screenwriter is changing a script in order to try to get them made.
