The faster I write the better my output. If I am going slow, I’m in trouble. It means I am pushing the words instead of being pulled by them.
I simply don’t know how anyone can write at great speed, and only for the money’s sake.
Speed is crucial in TV. Under the pressure of production, you have to be able to bang out good scripts on a clock. A writer who can finish a solid draft in two months? They’re easy to find. I’m interested in the writer who can write that draft in two days.
