Personal Quote:

One of the few things I've discovered about writing is to form a habit that becomes an addiction, so that if you don't put something down on paper every day you get really mean and awful with withdrawal symptoms, and your wife and your dog and your kids are going to kick your ass until you get back to it, because they can't bear you in that state of mind.

Trivia:

A Harvard graduate with a degree in cultural anthropology, he was also a revered, but demanding, mentor; especially in his role as one of the founding writers at Robert Redford's Sundance Screenwriters Lab in the 1980s. See more »
