    So watch your greed there Writer’s Guild folks because there are lots of us out here that can write just as well or better than you do. We’re scratching out a living freelancing just to be able to do what we love: write. We have no steady income. We have no benefits. And we get no royalties for the TV commercials we write for local car dealers;  for the clever ads convincing people to buy things they don’t need; for magazine articles.  We’re out here. We’re waiting.  We’d love to have the job you have right now.

    You sound just like the wannabes who complain about progress made by the baseball players association.  Your envy is showing.

    Note to Hollywood:  There are thousands of outstanding screenplays out there sitting in drawers, moldering on hard drives, screenplays written by unknown writers who aren’t in the union clique.  Open the transom and see what you get.

    Note to Hollywood:  After you've looked at the transom, get real and make a deal with the writer's union.
