Subway Reading (and Writing)

Last week, I spotted a young woman reading How to Write a Movie in 21 Days by Viki King on the uptown A train. Not only was she reading the book--it looked as if she was writing her script then and there. She'd read with great concentration for a few minutes, stare into space for a bit, and--next--with a sudden burst of energy--she'd write in her notebook. Back and forth she went: Read. Ponder. Write. At this pace, I think she's going to write two scripts in 21 days on her daily commute.
