The feeling of not belonging, of not being entirely worthy, of being sometimes hostage to your own sensibilities. Those things speak to me very personally.
I work fitfully, in hope rather than in expectation, invent methods which last a week, and fill notebooks with tiny, illegible writing which often defies my own attempts to decipher it.
I don't hold with the notion that only bad books make good movies.
I had never thought of myself as a director and found out that I was not. I am a writer who was able to direct the films that I write.
I never feel more myself than when I'm writing; I never enjoy any day more than a good writing day.
