Writing something you can put your name to
Perusing through some short films on the PBS website I found this Mike Wallace interview with Rod Serling from 1959, just after Serling wrote several terrific television programs during TV's 'Golden Age' and before launching "The Twilight Zone." What Serling has to say about writing a story, standing up for what you believe, appreciating good writing as art even if it is a television program is all as relevant now 53 years later as it was then.
The program lasts 21 minutes. It is time well spent.
