A few concerns:
let’s get the first horror out of the way immediately. I had never read the book or any Douglas Adams before I was told of this assignment
I started with Douglas’s last draft, so I not only had the new ideas and concepts he had invented specifically for the screenplay (brilliant ideas, too -- truly humbling)... My goal in the writing was to be like an editor on a feature film. If an editor has done his job well, you don’t feel his or her presence.
Incidentally - and nothing to do with HHGTTG, I sometimes feel I'm not cut out to be a writer because:
One of my favorite quotes about writing is "I hate writing, I love having written." This seems to be my mantra, and I have hated, loathed or dreaded writing just about every draft I’ve ever been involved with, mostly because writing is such a lonely and demoralizing process.
It is reassuring that somebody who makes his bloody living out of it feels like this too.
