If you're anything like Chris, I know at the moment I'm writing this, you're probably getting drunk and getting ready to scream your head off at your Superbowl team of choice (I'm going for the Packers, personally, as that was my grandpa's team, and I think it's so neat that his team is going to the Superbowl this year of all years). Thankfully, this post will still be here later, or whenever you check it. I love the Internet.
The real point, after the break.
Anyway, the point, before I got sidetracked: we talk a lot about writing on this blog. It's an occupational hazard. That's the one thing in common between the six of us who post here, is that we regularly put words down onto the page and expect you to not only read them, but to like them and to tell us we're awesome. So I guess you could say that we have writing and egos in common?
However, there are many types of writing, as some commenters have pointed out (some angrily, some not). Justin tends to write screenplays, Wep satire, mxpw likes the darker side of the psyche, Chris likes writing as an art form, Crystal is adorable, and I like subverting things.
One thing I don't really think we talk about much is the realities of screenwriting, or writing for a show. mxpw and I both have some familiarity with writers' rooms, but I don't think a lot of people know how it works, so when I found this post, I got really excited.
Here's the first part of TV Series Writing Part One: Setting the Table.
