Write What You Believe In

…write something you really believe in. And, for heaven's sake, don't hurry. Play with your manuscript, enjoy yourself. Watch you characters grow. Draw characters who live in society, whose actions are forced by necessity, and you will find that you've bettered your chances of selling the play. Don't write for the producers or for the public. Write for yourself.

—Lajos Egri
