Unfortunately it’s not my interview with Joss Whedon, It’s Forbes.com‘s, but it’s good. It’s insightful. I opens up Whedon some more as a person and artist. Here’s a particularly interesting tidbit:
You were a go-getter from a pretty young age. Why is helplessness something that resonates so strongly for you?
I guess because I grew up small and afraid of everything, and apart from the fact that I’m no longer small, nothing has changed. Every moment that I love is the moment when a character basically stands up and says “I have the right to exist.” And that’s something I have yet to do as a person. But I can write it quite eloquently.
This struck me particularly hard, having just had a similar conversation with my wife about my writing. The more I know, the more I like Joss Whedon. Go! Read it!
