I would advise anyone who aspires to a writing career that before developing his talent he would be wise to develop a thick hide.—Harper Lee

When your story is ready for rewrite, cut it to the bone. Get rid of every ounce of excess fat. This is going to hurt; revising a story down to the bare essentials is always a little like murdering children, but it must be done.

—Stephen King

A good film script should be able to do completely without dialogue.

- David Mamet

I could be just a writer very easily. I am not a writer. I am a screenwriter, which is half a filmmaker. … But it is not an art form, because screenplays are not works of art. They are invitations to others to collaborate on a work of art.

- Paul Schrader

The road to hell is paved with works-in-progress.

- Philip Roth
