I once saw screenwriter Paul Schrader speak at the Academy. He described how if two people bring him scripts and one says he cranked it out in two weeks and the other says he’s labored over it for years, Schrader is much more apt to read the one that was written in two weeks.

My stories are written in one sitting, one per day. No stiff taxidermy or lacquered fish mounted on a wall in a dusty basement. I want a living, writhing thing that tries to squirm out of my hands…

    I liked your blog so much! One question: what about inspiration? How did you manage to write every single day in some months? 🙂

    Thanks Gustavo! I literally start typing with no idea what I’m about to write. It flows out on its own accord, like a dream…
