We're back, and the WGA is striking for just labor protections.
"I won’t stop writing til I die".
And even then I'll leave behind a thousand unwritten things.
People need to eat and have homes and stuff. No job should pay so awfully that it doesn't allow for that. Or for self care.
I can't count the sheer number of writers in every medium that have spoken their words into my head and my heart. We can't stop, but we also need to live in the real world.
Great piece, thank you. I hope they get what they need.
AWESOME. You should take more little rest breaks, because you come back brilliant.
Thank you so much for this paean to writers and writing! I'm upgrading to paid. Workers now of all countries unite/Side by side we for freedom we'll fight/When the world in its wealth we have gained/To the grafters we'll sing this refrain... (From "Pie in the Sky" by Joe Hill.)
Great piece Tal! I’d hope everyone here is with you supporting the writers, as it’s clearly the right side in this dispute.
