Today I watched the movie “Finding Forrester”. The movie is about a talented young writer’s friendship with an old writer who had given up human relationship.
When I saw the main character holding his notebooks, I was very moved, because I use the same size notebooks too.
The old writer says, “The first draft, write with you heart. The second draft, write with your head.” Writing for oneself is better than writing for someone else. Writing is wasted when it goes unread. The old writer quit writing for the public because he was disappointed when he saw how his readers place his writing above human life. I definitely got many tips from the movie.
I like the scene where the main character and his mother and older brother ate dinner. And I like the old man’s habit of cleaning windows.
