Without words, without writing and without books there would be no history, there could be no concept of humanity.
Writing is good, thinking is better. Cleverness is good, patience is better.
Yeah, I've been interested in music since I was a teenager, always writing songs.
When I write, I make decent money doing it, but I don't wake up dreaming about writing.
I don't make my living writing; I make my living as a producer and as a director.
I find writing really difficult - definitely the most difficult of all the things I do.
There's no lack of writers writing novels in America, about America. Therefore, it seems to me it would be wasteful for me to add to that huge number of people writing here when there are so few people writing about somewhere else.
The songs keep on writing themselves, and I really love them. It's as close as I get to a religion.
Writing screenplays makes me a better musician because it clears my head. After writing a movie, I go running back to music as fast as I can.
Songwriting, I have to take myself away from everybody to do. It's an unsightly act.
I became a script writer with absolutely no idea of how to write a script whatsoever. I still feel a bit of an outsider in that regard. If I can maintain that approach to screenwriting, it can continue to be enjoyable.
The big problem with songwriting for me is starting a new song. It's the thing where all the anguish exists, not in the writing of the song, but the starting of the new song.
It certainly made a film writing career for me.
The next thing I wrote was in a writing class at night school. It was about a poor woman who worked at a dime store and who was all alone for Christmas in Laurel, Mississippi.
I love writing for the screen.
