A personal diary keeping people abreast of what I am working on writing-wise.

It's being announced today that the Director's Guild of America is coming to an agreement for new contracts with the Association of Motion Picture and Television Producers. Full analysis still has to be done, and it will remain to be seen if this loosens the stone to let other unions get at the treasure, too, but hopefully it's a step in the right direction.

Of course, this agreement appears to contain certain elements that so far the AMPTP has claimed were impossible. If anyone needed proof that the age-old belief that despite being the initiators of the projects, the writers are considered the lowest form of life in the Hollywood ecosystem, this could very well be it. One hopes that this isn't a case of being impossible for writers, but possible for directors, because directors rate and writers don't. Especially since it appears we're now out of episodes of 30 Rock.

Current Soundtrack: Alicia Keys, As I Am

Current Mood: hopeful
