Shane Black Is Right...

Creative Screenwriting sends me an e-mail every Friday, usually with a quote from some professional on the movie racket. For some reason today's hit a chord:

"Here's what I didn't know when I was starting out that I now know…I thought when you were starting out it was really hard to write because you hadn't broken in yet, you hadn't really hit your stride yet. What I found out paradoxically is that the next script you write doesn't get easier because you wrote one before…each one gets harder by a factor of 10."
