On Writing- Rejection
I can remember when I was writing some of the first drafts of the screenplay about my life, I would get notes from the producer, Todd Black, and he would give me feedback. After reading some of the pages, Todd said, "This is some of the most uninspired writing I've ever read." Some might think it's harsh, but what Todd's words did was force me to dig deeper within myself to tell a truth that would be more inspiring to him. Truth in writing is what makes it really good. I had to accept the constructive critcism and push ahead. If you are writing, accept the not so good comments, too.
