Back in Class
I'm taking another Scriptwriting class this summer, but this time it's at the rival school, UCLA. This class is all about writing your TV drama.
The class has all types of folks attending. There are a few working writers from Teen Wolf, Army Wives and Mountain Men. We also have an actress from the show Copper. Our teacher was the showrunner for the original Beverly Hill 90210, so I have much respect for him. I mean, this guy ran show that started the teen show craze! We have 6 weeks to create a show, I think I have an idea... More on that later.
This class is just what I needed to get my engines moving. It's a great escape from work and other issues in my life. I am looking forward to knowing my classmates, because you never know if one them could be a future colleague. However, my only complaint is the drive. UCLA is on the other side of town and if you don't about LA, trust me, it's a serious drive.
