i think that the problem with hollywood is that writers are not respected. everyone knows a films director, but how many writers get the credit for their creation? the answer is not too many, & most of those that do are writer-slash-directors. the only author i can think of off the top of my head who got a fair shake is joss whedon, & look at what he's done. written practically everything, created a seven (7) series success, & a solid spinoff. i understand when writers for sitcoms or what have you are a rotating ensemble, but all i'm saying is that maybe writers deserve a little more credit than they recieve.
i feel dirty.
