1. Thomas Mann: ‘A writer is somebody for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people.’
2. A very famous one from Beckett: ‘Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.’
3. And lastly, one from David Foster Wallace’s school teacher: ‘Good fiction’s job is to comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable.’
I hope these words help some of you with your scriptwriting, like they’ve helped me.
