ABSTRACT
The article discusses several points a screenwriter must consider when he or she intends to work in Hollywood without leaving anywhere near it. To sustain a career outside of Los Angeles, California, writers are advised to have a great agent or manager working hard on their behalf. It suggests that writers make the most of their face time, letting their agents cram on schedule with meets-and-greets. Self-esteem is also important when living outside of the few spheres of filmmaking. Writers are also recommended to make an effort to watch movies.
