A Virgin Writer

"When I write, I must convince myself that it's going to be wonderful. There's a character in a great play by Tennessee Williams, Camino Real. She's the Gypsy's daughter and she's a whore, but in her heart each moonrise makes her a virgin. I'm like that - each moonrise makes me a virgin too - I'm going to write it, and this time, this time, it won't be crap. When I don't have this confidence, I'm in big trouble... When I'm hired to write a movie, I may turn in a garbage script. But at least I know that, rotten as it may turn out, it was written by the best me available."
William Goldman
