How stupid can a man be? I’ve always thought the idea of writing a blog the height of narcissism. As bad as putting dumb videos of yourself on YouTube. Ah-hem. But of course my bad attitude was due to the fact that I hadn’t really read any blogs. Which is as bad as calling for Monty Python’s Life of Brian to be banned without watching it. Take these two blogs:
Lee Goldberg, is a LA based scriptwriter and novelist. Think Diagnosis Murder, Monk, Psych. Very, very funny writer. And very open about the whole business. Then there’s Stephen Gallagher. Stephen’s name didn’t jump out on me until I realised that among many other thing he wrote ‘Warrior’s Gate’, that weird looking episode of Doctor Who with Tom Baker and Lalla Ward. Y’know, the one where everything is white.
Then combine these two highly intelligent, successful authors in this thread on Stephens blog about the difference between writing for US and British TV. It’s like sitting in on a real writer’s meeting. Thank you Lee and Stephen. And thank you blogs.
