Winding down

Apart from posting the latest TV news (btw, did you see that NBC shelved 'Joey' AGAIN after one airing??), I really don't have a lot to say here anymore.

When I started blogging there were about 15-20 screenwriting blogs, pros and wannabes. Now there are more than 100. With so many different voices, all with unique perspectives and interesting insights, I'm at a loss to add anything interesting to the mix.

So, don't be surprised if one day soon, you come here and see a big 'Closed' sign on the front page. It just may happen. Can't say when, can't say how, but it is possible.

If you have specific information you want me to post, please let me know below. I'll do my best to accommodate.

Huh? Your blog is the only one covering TV news thoroughly and consistently. That in itself is fantastic.

I agree with KW. The TV news has come in handy with my job from time to time. Don't close!

On the flip side, I know what you mean. It's tough coming up with fresh stuff. I've been blogging for only 3 months and I'm already tapped. Don't know how you've kept it going this long. Regardless, you've done excellent work here. It'd be a shame to see you close shop.

The majority of the writer blog sites seem to be focused on feature writing- but the biggest thing I see is that the majority of the sites don't blog about their own writing.

The seem to focus on misc stuff.

So you should just blog about your specs, problem you have, holes your trying to fix etc etc.
I'm starting a new spec and I'm going to be taking the class with
Matt Witten from House so I'll probably blog about all that.

My problem is I'm just to lazy to blog lol

you did this big post on the benefits of networking and staying in touch because you just never know who you may require the services of down the road... to me closing up this avenue would be a mistake

Aw, say it ain't so! This was one of the first such sites I found after moving to LA. Of course, if it means more time devoted to your own writing, you gotta do whatcha gotta do. But I'd miss it.

I agree with Konrad, Shawna, I do hope you keep posting, but a blog is primarily for yourself, so if you don't want to keep going, I understand that. But, as always, best of luck breaking into TV would love to read one day that you make it.

I agree with everyone here, there is no way you can close this blog. There are a lot of people blogging with less to offer then you to put it bluntly included me. We need more informed people like you. Please stay!

I've always enjoyed checking out this blog and seeing what's been commissioned, axed etc and thought: "wow, that's really useful advice for those writing spec TV scripts in the US". You go girl. Er, I mean, don't go.

Yours was one of the blogs that inspired me to jump in.

I loved it when you wrote about your experiences writing...the class, the Lost spec, the House spec (which was good, BTW...hard show to nail...I shelved my House spec).

Don't stop now.

We all have our various "crises of faith." To get over it:

-Have a shot and a beer.
-Go up to somone you don't know and punch them out.(pick someone small to thin the herd)
-Send something you've written out for feedback.

For what it's worth: as long as you keep blogging, I'll keep reading it.
