Music, I find, gets you out of a trap [when screenwriting], because it speaks to your emotions directly, it’s an abstract thing, it’s not concerned with plot or story. And so music really helps - often I’ll listen to the music and just write anything, just to get through.
Tony Grisoni (screenwriter - BAFTA interview)
If you find yourself insulted by someone’s reaction to your work. Just use it as fuel, just like every other writer who ever lived.

Books I Love: The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
“All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost; The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring; Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king.”

A little talent is a good thing to have if you want to be a writer. But the only real requirement is the ability to remember every scar.

— J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Interesting.

Two hours of writing fiction leaves this writer completely drained. For those two hours he has been in a different place with totally different people.

"Words mean things. When you put them together they speak. Yes, sometimes they flatten out and nothing they say is real, and that is one kind of magic. But sometimes a vision will rip up from them and shriek and clank wings clear as the sweat smudge on the paper under your thumb. And that is another kind."—Samuel R. Delany
