"The geopolitical equivalent of scorecards that get hawked at ball games. Only Bob could make a user’s guide to our increasingly hostile world this absorbing, this breezy, and—ultimately—this hopeful."
~ Ken Jennings, author of Brainiac

11/05/2007: Strike! Pizza! Chad!

UPDATE: I am being told that our team might be reassigned to a different and even more remote gate. If you're looking for me and cannot find me, then please, support any writers you do find. Hold a sign, stay and chat... it will be appreciated!

I am freshly returned from the picket line. They have put our "team" of Battlestar writers at a secondary, but strategically important Universal side gate, primarily an entrance to the theme park but also used by productions. Even there, hidden and isolated, I was delighted to be joined by a number of fans and gentle blog readers who found me and then carried signs and endured my foot-sore company for the duration! Thank you! And, as for the rest of you, I would love to meet more of you during future mornings.

And, get this -- pizzas were delivered to me and to the other strikers down by the main gate by the generous readers of Whedonesque.com! Whoo! Pizza! Thank you, my people! You're making this bad sitch a lot more comfortable.

And today's writing advice? Today I offer you this link to "Scriptnotes," Writers Digest's new blog "about the craft and business of writing for film, television, and digital media." It's offered by friend-of-the-blog Chad Gervich, and it looks as if it's going to address a lot of the questions that I avoid about aspects of the job that extend beyond the margins of the page.

For example, Betsy in Los Angeles, who wrote to ask about seeking out production companies versus agents as a way into the business? Well, you might want to direct that question to Chad. I concentrate on helping you perfect that script. Chad is better equipped than I am to advise you beyond that point. I think it's going to be a great resource. Enjoy!

Lunch: pizza with anchovies, delivered specially for me to the picket line. Beautiful! Thank you!
