If any one has ever watched any of the films (The Social Network) or TV shows (West Wing) that Aaron Sorkin has written, can certainly tell that he has a way to write snappy and memorable dialogue.  This short piece looking at his writing process has some interesting insights into his way of writing.  A few quoted below.

Despite the accolades earned since his play A Few Good Men was brought to the big screen in 1992, Sorkin admits: “Writing never comes easy. The difference between Page 2 and Page Nothing is the difference between life and death.”

“I’ll take anything that gets me started,” he says. “Sometimes it’s finding a particular moment, remembering that you want to begin your story as close to the end as possible. If there’s a structure that seems pretty cool,I think about that.”
