I’m probably the quintessential hack writer. I don’t get inspirations as such. And when I don’t have something to write, I’m not thinking about it at all. But, I’m sort of a pressure writer. If somebody says, ‘Stan, write something,’ and I have to have it by tomorrow morning, I’ll just sit down and I’ll write it. It always seems to come to me. But I’m better doing a rushed job because if it isn’t something that’s due quickly, I won’t work on it until it becomes almost an emergency and then I’ll do it.
