Drew Goddard: I knew that when Dana came to reading the diary itself, like I said Joss loves prairie folk, and I thought, “I bet he’s going to want to write this,” so I yelled downstairs, “Hey, do you want to write the diary?” And he goes, “Yeah, I do,” and then—I’m not kidding you—six minutes later, he ran upstairs with it, this full page, this beautifully written horror diary of a prairie girl. I was like, “How did you write that that fast?” And he’s just like, “Some things I was born to do.” [laughs] He cranked that diary out faster than I’ve ever seen anyone write anything. I couldn’t write my own name repeatedly as fast as he wrote that diary. It was amazing.

Whedon as a Teenage Girl
In their joint interview in The Cabin in the Woods: The Official Visual Companion, we find this hilarious and revealing exchange between Cabin's co-authors, Drew Goodard and Joss Whedon. (You should know that they wrote the script locked, upstairs and downstairs, in an hotel room.)
