I get the ‘The New York Times’ and ‘Los Angeles Times’ thrown at my door every morning. I’ll read the front page of ‘The New York Times,’ then the op-eds, then scan the arts section and then the sports section. Then I do the same with the ‘L.A. Times.’

I’ve always thought that there is a great female James Bond movie to be done. I’m not literally calling her Jane Bond, I mean, but a female secret agent.

Don’t try to guess what it is people want and give it to them. Don’t ask for a show of hands. Try your best to write what you like, what you think your friends would like and what you think your father would like and then cross your fingers… The most valuable thing you have is your own voice.
