I was talking with my dad the other day about writing, and he said that he said that he used to believe in the Stephen King school of thought where some people are just born with raw writing talent and others are not, but now he believes that anyone can become a master of something if they try hard enough. I tend to agree with the latter, but I think both are true in Spielberg's case, since he's so clearly preternaturally gifted when it comes...
