Shelley Long on The Phil Donahue Show discussing why she quit Cheers

1987 talk show interview.

Guest author - Julie Bozza

What do you think you've learned since you were first published. I guess I already ‘knew’ this, but it’s really been brought home to me – and that is how writers and readers are two sides of the same coin. It takes both to make a book – and even with the same book and the same writer, when you add a different reader to the mix, a different book will result. What do you wish you'd known when you were first published. My first thought in response to this question was that I wish I’d known how much hard work was involved to be ‘successful’ in even the smallest of ways … but then maybe I wouldn’t have been brave enough to begin. A bit of delusional hope can take one a long way. That’s a long story that dates back some years … Basically an Australian film producer (no one you’d have heard of, unfortunately. ) liked my writing, and wanted me to try my hand at a story set in Australia. I wrote him a screenplay, which has since become ‘Mitch Rebecki Gets a Life’. He wanted more drop-bears. So it’s been sitting in my bottom drawer ever since, but finally I decided that it might make a novel instead. Did you know where 'Mitch Rebecki Gets a Life' was going from the start or did it take an unexpected turn. I always know where a story is going, though often they take a detour along the way … In this case, there were no detours – and no bloodthirsty drop-bears. Have you ever been writing and discovered something totally unexpected about one of your characters. I want to say yes, but for the life of me I can’t think of an example. I know a story is working when a character becomes alive to the extent of surprising me. I’m glad to say that happens to some extent with just about every project. But I guess the process is fairly organic, and it’s not really such a shock when it happens … Sometimes the more unexpected things relate to plots. I’ll have included something by instinct in the early parts of the story, and (lo and behold. ) it turns out to be very useful foreshadowing for something that happens later. I don’t know if that’s how the story-telling mind works, or if it’s plain dumb luck, but it’s a very enjoyable thing to have happen. Which book do you wish you'd written and why. I hardly dare go back and look at it – I think I’m too different a writer now to pick it up again – but I wish it wasn’t stuck in that bottom drawer of mine.
