I just sit down at my desk, open up a vein, and go to work." It's blood sweat and tears to write. The Ho is not going to find many writers willing to collaborate with her on future projects. Where is the trust? I think there's a great deal of contempt and resentment toward her by screenwriters and writers in general.
Some writers are prolific including Stephen King (who has seemed to slow down with his illness) but it's well-known that huge writer's block where the writer stares at a blank page. She does insult the writing profession in every way. And directors may say the same thing with their profession.
Slightly OT, but even King needed to slow down and take a break to produce a work as good as "11/22/63." Most critics agree that it is his best book in over a decade. I think it is his first readable book in a dozen years.
Never read any of his books but know of his film adaptations.
He definitely is not typical of most writers. An opposite is JD Salinger.
