    Here’s the news! I’ve always believed in writing stories unlike anything I’ve written before, taking chances and pushing myself creatively. The most significant culmination of that process is Together We Will Go, which has just landed for pre-orders.

  2. Exactly the sort of thing every writer/producer/director has to address in the business. Worst is when (as noted here) you're told to do something, you do it, and now they don't like it because you did the thing they asked you to do.

  4. Stumbled upon this just now by accident while looking for something else. Not sure I buy the Myer-Briggs scale, but still kind of fun.

  5. It's been noted here before, but what helped a lot was, unlike most shows, not listing ethnicity (and very often gender) of characters when casting breakdowns went out unless it was vital. That guaranteed us the widest range of actors, and allowed us to be as diverse as possible.

  12. Worldmeter shows 328,259 new titles published in the US in 2020. Only a handful get picked up for TV. Of those that do: 1-2 years to write, 1-2 years to get published (if a buyer is found), 1-2 years for street cred, 1 year to negotiate then market to TV, 1-2 to produce. So 5-9
