I heard on Terry Gross once that before he became a renowned writer of snappy dialog, David Mamet wrote stories for Penthouse.
If I ever become a pornography writer --- I should interrupt at this point and mention that I have no plans to do so, not even in the very weak sense that I plan to win the lottery without hactually buying tickets, but one never knows the twists and turns that life throws at us. For example, I had planned on becoming a professor but that seems not to be panning out, so I need to have a plan for all the various exigencies life throws me way --- if, as I was saying I should ever become a writer of pornography, I would like to write porn in the manner of David Mamet.
