Twitter can be a gold mine for writers. Case in point, when pro writers generate a tweetstorm about the craft. Yesterday television writer-producer Alexi Hawley (Castle, State of Affairs, The Following) put together a tweetstorm about the ups and downs… and DOWNS of working in Hollywood as a writer. Reprinted here by permission.

My only comment: This.

Okay, I’ve got more. This. This. And MORE this.

As I wrote: Movies don’t owe anybody a living.
