04/03/2008: You Don't Need to be a Secret Agent to Find Out Agents' Secrets

I hope you all already read the blog by Amanda The Aspiring TV Writer. In particular, check out this entry and, ooh, this one. This is amazing stuff from INSIDE AN AGENCY. Fantastic. Note that there's material here that applies directly to the topic we recently discussed about the possibility of contacting agents directly through query letters or submissions.

And those of you debating whether to try to break into the industry in the come-to-Hollywood-and-make-connections way will learn a lot about the nature of that experience by following Amanda's adventures. I certainly do.

Even though this humble blog tries to focus on the writing process itself, the getting-a-job-process is just as important, and finding resources like Amanda's blog can be a big help.

Lunch: Get this. The cafeteria was offering a "spinach-strawberry salad" with a very yucky-looking pink dressing. I got them to give me my strawberries on the side, no dressing, and all was wonderful.
