whether you're a screenwriter or a writer.

John Milius says

'All creative work is mystical. How dare they demystify it? How dare they think they can demystify it? Especially when they can’t write. These guys who write these books, what’s their great literary legacy to us? What have they done? They don’t even write television episodes.'

and a lot more:

Milius does it his way...not bad for a surfer dude turned screenwriter. Thanks for posting the link, Hilly.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading that, Hillwalker.  Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1
