Well, by now you’ve heard about the strike by the Writer’s Guild of America.
People have asked me what that means for this blog.
I read something today that really spoke to me and how I feel about this issue. It was a quote about the movie, “Norma Rae,” starring Sally Field:
The story of a woman with the courage to risk everything for what she believes is right.
While I’m not currently a member of that union, or a woman, unfortunately for my readers, I am a member of the Pipefitters Union Local 597, Chicago.
I feel it would be irresponsible for me to turn my back on the plight of my union brothers and sister in the Writer’s Guild, so from this moment forth, until such time as the strike is settled, I will not write for any television shows or movies – no matter how much they try and beg me to do so.
Thank you for your understanding. We just want what we feel is owed to us.
