So there are all these articles out now about how all these writers are pounding away, trying to get drafts done before the strike looms.
But the frenzy extends to readers as well.
Apparently no one is sitting around doing nothing this week. Everyone has scripts that need to be read, and read now.
All of which has been exascerbated by the fact that, earlier this week, I agreed to do a very (very) low-paid, semi-official, no-credit rewrite of a script for a production company that I occasionally do work for. But even that has to be done before the strike hits.
It's writing, which is cool, and on some levels I'm enjoying just banging out a pass. But the rewrite is turning out to be more extensive than I thought. Particularly for the money I'm getting.
Not complaining, just swamped.
Anyhow, don't expect a huge amount of posts from me this week, though I'll knock out one about the weekend movies tomorrow.
Let's hope there's not a strike though, because that's not going to help anyone.
