For me, modern technology has ruined romance and movies - nobody can run to the airplane gate anymore.
I'm a person that thinks time is very precious and our only commodity... It's so upsetting when I feel like something has wasted my time.
No texting. What happens then? Good old-fashioned letters.
Routine is part of coping.
I escaped to New York, and then L.A., but when I dream of home, I still dream of my old house in Holmdel.
I've been obsessed with doomsday for a long time - the idea that different cultures respond to it differently, and religions will change people's outlook on it.
Most of my nightmares that jolt me awake either involve the cosmos or something completely out of human control. In reality, I worry more about nuclear war, or war in general.
I liked to think I had written 'scripts' when I was in high school, but looking back at them, they were about thirty pages of wannabe-Mamet dialogue with a staple through them.
The best thing you can give me is your time. The easiest way to get me angry is to waste my time.
No I don't really write thinking about specific actors because it can get in the way a little bit.
What do they call it, Y.O.L.A., you only live once? I think people are sort of gravitating towards that.
In the '90s there were these great end of the world movies like 'Armageddon' and 'Deep Impact'... I always liked the idea of what people on the ground are doing, not so much the people who are trying to stop the world from ending.
I think, as a woman, you do sort of have to work twice as hard, but I don't feel as if I wasn't given opportunities.
It's really hard as a screenwriter, you feel like you have a vision and then you turn it over to a director and you have to let it go.
Work harder than everybody. Read scripts, watch movies. Help other writers, it makes you better. And probably move to L.A.
