I’m still mulling over a conversation I had with a student this week. She was worried about her script being ‘stolen’ and said she’s had bad experiences in the past. I said, no one is stealing anything from any one and just register it…so if you, an unknown housewife, literally believes that someone like Jane Anderson or Steve Zallian are stealing your scripts – then you can contest it.

“Being a writer is an amazing job, but we’re all writers, most of us just forget to put our stories down on paper.”
Colette Freedman

“One's character is determined not how she gets caught in the downpour of disappointment, but how she finds the hope to look for the rainbow.”
Colette Freedman

“Trying to restructure a perfectly structured script is like trying to fit in a size four jeans when you're a size ten.”
Colette Freedman

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Being a writer is an amazing job, but we’re all writers, most of us just forget to put our stories down on paper.”
Colette Freedman

“Love is like quicksilver in the hand. Leave the fingers open and it stays. Clutch it and it darts away.”
Dorothy Parker
tags: love

“Because you can never go from going out to being friends, just like that. It's a lie. It's just something that people say they'll do to take the permanence out of a breakup. And someone always takes it to mean more than it does, and then is hurt even more when, inevitably, said ‘friendly' relationship is still a major step down from the previous relationship, and it's like breaking up all over again. But messier.”
Sarah Dessen, This Lullaby

“..And now you've lost the only thing that ever made you feel alive”
Keith Urban

“Like some wines our love could neither mature nor travel.”
Graham Greene, The Comedians
