A quick update...

Sorry I haven't been posting much lately. Most of the questions I've received have been repeats, and I have been pointing a lot of people to the following old posts:

How to Get a Writer's Assistant Job

How to Find a Writer's Assistant Job (Update)

Spec scripts

The Next Step After Finishing a Pilot

What to do with your specs

If you have a question that hasn't been covered (the Job Search, Internships and Career Advice categories may also be helpful), please do feel free to email me at .

I AM still doing my script notes service for anyone who needs feedback. Rates are all still the same.

Also, just a heads up that the Warner Brother's Writers Workshop is accepting submissions from now until June 1, 2010. All the info is at their website. Good luck!

The Hollywood Writers Office Assistants are having a mixer TONIGHT, May 6th.

Just wanted to say that I highly recommend Amanda's script notes service. Just this week I sent her a spec to critique, and she gave me *excellent* feedback.

Thanks so much! This is a great help to fellow aspiring TV writers who are maybe a bit new to the game. Oh man, this post just got seriously bookmarked.

Wow, what a great effort by Disney to reach out to the writers!

With the recent and on-going success of Tim Burton's, "Alice in Wonderland," it seems like some of the old stories, ones in the public domain, can be reworked for contemporary audiences, and what better company than Disney to pitch it to. Is "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm" ready to go? Or a new take on "Pollyanna"?

Or how about, "Rebecca of Space Sunnybrook Farm"?

Anyway, I'd go to the Disney event if I could and do some pitching.
