Thornton P. Knowles On Writing For The Screen

My idea of writing for the screen is shared by the novelist Norman Mailer who articulated his views on the subject better than I could: "I'm not interested in getting a job in Hollywood. I have no desire in the world to write a movie script. Why the hell should I write a movie script? Scriptwriting has nothing to do with writing. The best scriptwriter in the world, ideally, would be a film editor with a novelistic gift. And those are qualities that don't usually go together."
