Don't Sit Down To Write A Script Whilst Suffering Back Pain

If you're going to write a script, it has to be good. It has to be worth the effort expended. The characters have to sound like real people talking. This is widely recognised to be hard work. Writing something down which sounds like a real person talking is the kind of thing that wins Quentin Tarantino plaudits. Quentin Tarantino is unlikely to sit down in front of his computer screen with the intention of writing a script whilst suffering from 5 months worth of back pain. Sitting in front of your computer screen and typing the words 'It hurts, it fucking hurts, I don't know how much more of this I can take! rarely makes good material for dialogue. Unless of course you are Quentin Tarentino.

Hmm, maybe he does suffer back pain....
