I'm not being supercilious - sorry if it came across that way. I'm just more comfortable with writers writing than not writing. I'd hate to think of these guys spending more time polishing turds than pursuing their dreams. Call me an idealist if you want, but we all have but a dismally limited time upon this annoying little disappointing planet...
I don't get this. They've gotta put food on the table (I assume, at present, their 'dreams' can't yet do this).
It seems to make more sense to do something loosely-connected with their 'dreams', which has a better time:income ratio than working behind a till in Superdrug, or whatever.
Plus, they don't have to wake up 6:30am, in order to have some imbecile tell them what to do all-day. They can be paid in cash too.
It's win-win, until such a time when success makes their time sufficiently-valuable that scripting editing becomes an inefficient income source.
