No one can teach you to be you, and that’s the one thing you have as a writer. So saith Matthew Quick, author of two books for young adults and two books for adults (one yet unpublished but forthcoming), including The Silver Linings Playbook, which has been made into a major motion picture directed by David O. Russell. It will be released Thanksgiving weekend.
Matthew (he goes by Q) and I chatted around a month ago about the movie, about the writing, about finding your voice and why he wrote The Silver Linings Playbook in secret while getting his MFA. He’s got a lot of wisdom and experience to share. You may want to take notes – I know I did.

You’ve still got about a month to read The Silver Linings Playbook before you see the movie. I highly recommend that you do both.
