On The Origin of Writing.

“There are no undiscovered great writers. There is such a hunger for great writing, and there are so few good writers out there. I actually have a Darwinian view of writing. Write three scripts on spec, and if by the end of that third one, you haven’t felt that energy coming toward you – that excitement, that enthusiasm about finding a new voice – you should find something else to do, because you should feel that. It’s harsh, but it’s just true. You can get somebody to read your work. So, just try it. Just write, and see who gets excited about it.”

Marshall Herskovitz

  1. I like that quote. If there’s no excitement, something’s wrong. It’s difficult to impossible to generate excitement by yourself with average writing.
