Some interesting back and forth about what sort of writing WGA members might be doing during the strike at Deadline Hollywood Daily
And here's the official WGA Pencils Down Memo
"So, just to be absolutely clear: In the event of a strike, we, the following showrunners, will do no writing and no story breaking — nor will any be asked of our writing staffs — until we get a deal."
I know just how much paid work I would be doing if I were a WGA member -- or if my guild, the WGC, were out on strike.
Should be some very interesting spec features, pilot ideas, and novels coming out whenever the strike ends.
As one of those low-life, schmucks with typewriters, no-good greedy bastard writers, I know exactly how much writing I'm going to do: exactly none. I'm not going to think or talk about writing. I'm going to pretend that this strike thing is just a bad dream and when I wake up [and it's all over], I'll actually be valued and respected. And with my increased earnings I'm going to buy my very own studio and fire every fucking producer I see and hire in their place people who are worthy. Like high school drop outs, maybe.
