Quote

If the scene if not dramatically written, it will not be dramatically acted. There is no magic fairy dust which will make a boring, useless, redundant, or merely informative scene after it leaves your typewriter. You the writers, are in charge of making sure every scene is dramatic.

If you want to write movies, you can’t stop after you get pissed on and rejected, ’cause you’re gonna get pissed on and rejected. Nobody wants your stuff. Once you become somebody, they’ll read it—but nobody wants to give anybody their first shot.
