And, Paul, who’s to say that wasn’t the right decision for him. Permanently. Temporarily. Maybe he picks up writing down the road. The thing is, it’s possible to write and not make it an onerous impact on a relationship. If you write 1 page per day, it’s possible to write two spec feature scripts per year. And you can write 1 page in as little as 15–30 minutes.

Let’s hope for your acquaintance’s sake he can find happiness both in his romantic relationship and some type of writing regimen.
