I mentioned yesterday I was looking for striking writers who are currently picketing Disney and someone sent me the link to Plaintive Wail, writer Stephen Falk (which coincidentally is one of the pen names I’ve used in the past, but it’s not me, I swear).
I debated overnight about linking to his site, not because he doesn’t have great stuff on there, he does, but because it is lightly sprinkled with profanities and other colorful language. The type you might expect to hear coming from your stereotypical smoke filled writers room. This morning I decided that it was worth if for you to see and read about what was going on at the Walt Disney Studios during the strike. You’ll have to make your own decision about clicking through to read the blog.
Via Stephen’s blog, I found Pamie. While not at the WDS in Burbank, Pamie is a writer for a show currently on ABC, Samantha Who. She’s on strike in front of the CBS Radford Studio and her posts about her job as a line captain are worth reading too. Today she posted a ton of letters of support from fans and friends as well as a heartfelt personal story.
Good luck guys. We fans are with you! I’m still looking for other links from striking Disney writers, so send them if you’ve got them. Meanwhile keep an eye on UnitedHollywood.com and twitter.com/writersstrike for news from the front lines.
