John welcomes Tess Morris, Christina Hodson, Nicole Perlman, and Jason Fuchs to discuss their paths to becoming a professional screenwriter. They track the progression from glass bead day jobs to navigating general meetings to planning inconsistent finances to actually calling oneself a writer and even getting paid.
We also answer audience questions about career longevity and leaving writing behind.

- T-shirts are available here! We’ve got new designs, including Colored Revisions, Karateka, and Highland2.
