Karen Croner on Screenwriting

Read a great interview with screenwriter Karen Croner on the Women and Hollywood blog on IndieWire. She was talking about her latest film, Admission, a truly wonderful piece of mature and comedic writing with great emotional depth.  

Two things she said really struck me as valuable for screenwriters at all stages.

"Everything in this business is impossible. So you just have to completely ignore it and then reach for what you want for more than anything."
"The other thing I would say, don't be a screenwriter to be a screenwriter. You need to be a screenwriter because you have something you want to say. "
 There's more to the article. Check it out.
