One of the reasons why so few of us ever act, instead of react, is because we are continually stifling our deepest impulses.
– Henry Miller
I never learned to be a writer. I never took screenwriting courses. I never read anyone’s scripts. As a writer, my only guiding principle has been to write about things that scare me, write about things that make me feel vulnerable, write about things that will expose my deepest fears, so that’s how I write.
– Derek Cianfrance
