Writers Guild Foundation Q&A ~ Melissa Rosenberg

Let me start by saying that I never win anything. I don't generally go out of my way to do so and maybe that's the reason but I won something today that totally kicks ass!

Melissa Rosenberg who is a screenwriter is giving a Writer's Guild Foundation Q&A in LA this week and they're live streaming the whole thing. She is the screenwriter for all the Twilight movies as well as Alley McBeal, Dexter and many other things. I have a friend who might be interested to know that she did some writing for Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. She knows who she is and probably just choked on some bagged lettuce at the fact that I mentioned her.

Anyhoo, so I won these tickets to the live stream on Tuesday and I'm looking forward to it. I was one of 10 people chosen from her Facebook page. I was the first person to enter so that probably helped. Kudos to her for opening the contest during nap time!
I love hearing writers talk about how and why they started writing. I also look forward to hearing why she pulled certain things from each book and what she has planned for the last two movies. It lasts three hours so that's a lot of questions.

I'm tres excited!
