But as an educated woman who has identified as "a writer" since early childhood, I hereby claim the right to answer "write" when asked "what do you do?" Am I a member of the WGA? No. Am I a writer: one who writes something/anything almost every single day, simply because to do otherwise is unthinkable? Yes. I am a writer.
(Along with loving mom, loyal yet smartass friend, kick-ass rocker chick, hot wife over 40, total comic nerd, sci-fi geek, etc. But none of that is pertinent to this very timely post, so, moving on ....)
So I'm using my one politically-inspired thought for the day/week/month to remind everyone here of the extraordinary importance of both supporting the striking writers, and hoping for a quick and satisfying resolution for the members of the WGA. (The "quick" part is completely selfish; c'mon, do you really want to lose FNL, House, Chuck, Grey's, etc. indefinitely?) Wait ....
Actually, screw that - take a moment to imagine a world without Cap'n Reynolds! Feeling good about that scenario?
Yeah, me neither. So, if you are moved to do so, feel free to repost/pimp this supportive banner as you see fit!
