"You can write backwards from a great ending, forwards from a great start, or both ways from a great middle. It's having that great scene that matters, because it provides the impetus to keep going.

"Best of all is having two or three great scenes, so that you're always writing towards or away from one of them."

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"If you think you've written a brilliant script, put it away for a month and then read it again."
