Every Writer Does It
Scene from No Country For Old Men
Every writer yearns to be published, that's a given. But having your novel made into a movie, if you are a writer of fiction this is the ultimate wish.

I was reading an article about the Coen brothers which made me laugh. Having won four Oscars previously for No Country For Old Men, they said they found their success frightening. Talking about finding themselves at the Academy Awards they said, "You wonder what you did wrong."
Ha! Well if doing things wrong is the ingredient for success there's hope for me yet!
