Selznick on Writing

In a way, thinking about working on something that you think is going to be a gigantic failure gives you a lot of freedom. I eventually might actually hit something that people don’t like, and I’ve been through many years where I made books that nobody read.

But all you can do is make the book you want to make, and tell the story you want to tell, and try your hardest to make it as good as it can be.
