Paul Haggis on writing screenplays

Paul Haggis wrote the screenplays for Million Dollar Baby, Casino Royale, Crash, and many others.

Here he talks about his career, his method for finding storiesbeing carjacked, reading your daily hate mail, among others—and how he follows through on a story idea.

He says that failure and success as a writer don't matter, as long as you continue doing what you want to do.
