Lucky is being surrounded in a city of talented, creative writers: This week I seem to have been a writer magnate. Writers have struck up conversations with me all week. It’s like a writer avalanch moment – it’s raining people with story ideas, movie scripts, books and words. I’m digging it. I don’t know why this week has brought that on. In Hollywood it’s perhaps a sign that independent writers are emerging out of recession’s woodworks here in Hollywood. I like that. They have survived the writers’ drought, that actually began four years back with the writers’ strike. They’re tenacious and strong people.
