"Let’s be blunt: you’re not a writer until you’ve written. You can be [a writer], anyone can be. But if it’s all in your head, then no, you’re not a writer. If it’s only two pages, shut up, you’re wasting your time. Finish it. No one is going to thank you for those two pages, no one is going to be impressed by those two pages, no one’s going to buy those two pages, no one’s going to love those two pages. It’s just a waste of time. You’re not a writer until you’ve got a script or a novel or whatever it is you want to do, but until then it’s just bullshit, so get on with it."
