Personal Quote:

The screenwriter in Hollywood is not an isolated man working in his own time, employing his own criteria and studying his own aims. He is an employee working for a company. He works office hours in an office and usually to an overall schedule. A novelist is judged when his work appears. A screenwriter is judged en route to the final draft and can be fired before he's even gotten that far. See more »
