Writers' Strike—Yes, It Is Still On

I've been terribly remiss in keeping us talking about the writers' strike in Hollywood. What? That's still going on? It's become a bit of a strange situation because a lot of people aren't talking about it as much as they were, yet truly frightening-sounding reality shows are trudging across the screen in growing numbers, so clearly things are not back to normal.

So, yes, it is still going on—a reminder that you can stay up-to-date here—and whatever we write, we should support our fellow writers, whatever they write. We all fight the fair-pay war, most of us over and over.

In case you haven't seen them yet, the WGA has put out some (mostly) great Speechless videos. One of my favorites from the very beginning is this one. And if you want some truly blunt talk about fair pay for writers in general, check out Harlan Ellison's video.
