Interesting Words - Charles Kuralt
"Alice Weel chewed pencils while she was thinking. If she was thinking hard, she could go through a dozen pencils a day. She was a good, methodical writer and her desk was always littered with the remains of Eberhard Faber #2. She taught me how to write to film. Where SHE learned, I don't know, but, 'Don't write captions,' she'd say, 'don't point out what people are seeing. They can see what they're seeing. Just write the story to flow along with the film. And don't ever let your words fight the pictures. Pictures are so strong that in a fight, they always win.' (She was a member of the CBS News staff.)
