IS TV writing the best job ever?!?! Well, it's starting to seem like it...that is...if I can manage to write my bottom off and get gooood. Nay. Great!
Loved stumbling upon this little essay Jane Espenson wrote about what it's like to be a TV writer. She has an envious writing resume (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, The O.C., Gilmore Girls). Even better? Straight from IMDB:
Invented the name of the drink "Zima" while working for a marketing firm.
Whaaa?!??! That is some SERIOUS 90s comedy cred. Why? "Zima" gave many an American joy and laughter from all jokes for which it was a punchline.
