Why we write — screenwriters' blog

PenIf you haven’t had a chance to check out the blog, and you’re interested in writers, you really should. It’s a series of essays by TV and movie writers (striking to get a better deal from the producers) about why they became writers.

I liked this essay by Eileen Heisler, Writer/Producer of “Murphy Brown”. I particularly liked the story about people laughing out loud during a read-through, because I’ve had that experience too, and there are few feelings as good as a laugh earned.

(And if I recall correctly, Andy Poole fell out of his chair.)

You’ll find the why we write blog here, and a bunch of other writers that make me fall out of my chair here.
