""(Directing's) pretty much the opposite of writing," he explains. "When you're writing, you're alone in a room, and nobody cares. And it's just impossible and nothing is going well, and nobody cares. And then you have a perfect writing day, and nobody cares. "When you're directing, there are 90 million people around who want to help you. It's like high-speed shopping. You can just sit still and stuff keeps coming to you, and you're so happy. Writers who make the transition to directing are just so ... happy to have someone in the room.""
