They're Striking For You.

One day, your script will win that contest. Or, it will resonate with an agent who will turn around and sell it for mid-six figures. It will launch your career. You'll move from Mississippi, or Ventura. You'll have dozens of meetings. You'll write a couple more things. It'll be great. Maybe this isn't how you'll get here. Maybe it's another route. The journey itself doesn't matter. What matters is that you're here. You're getting paid to write.

But then, the well dries up a bit. It's lean times. Thank god for those checks that keep a-comin'. You know, the ones from all the internet downloads, from the sales of the DVDs, the very reasons the writers are striking.

It's not about some guy buying his fourth house on the coast. It's not about some chick being able to get twenty more pairs of Jimmy Choos and three Chloe purses. It's about ensuring that YOU will be safe-guarded.

Don't be dissuaded by the pissing contests running amok in blogosphere. This is very much a fight worth fighting. And your support is needed.

If you're here, and you're not in the WGA, you're very welcome on the lines: Click here to learn more.

If you're not in LA, stay informed. Show your support. Post your support on your blogs. Think outside the box. Think ROSWELL. Think about what you can do as a fan to support the writers. Post on fan websites, like thefuselage.com. Post on abc.com, post on cbs.com, nbc.com. Use the internets to your advantage. To OUR advantage.

Did you come up with something clever, something that the studios just can't ignore? Let me know, I'll post suggestions here. Until then, I'll see you tomorrow.
