“…You asking me…

“…You asking me…do I know how to write down words on a piece of paper? That’s what you do, man, you put down one word after another as it comes in your head…You already learned in school how to write, didn’t you? I hope so. You have the idea and you put down what you want to say. Then you get somebody to add in the commas and shit where they belong…There people do that for you.” –from Get Shorty (1990) Elmore Leonard
