The LA Times has a story about writers who paper the parking lot at NBC with their scripts. Apparently this is so common, the studio is requesting a bike trail not pass near their back lot for fear that it will encourage would-be writers.

“One bike advocate said Universal executives told him they feared that people would use the path to lob unsolicited screenplays onto the studio’s nearby production lot — something that apparently happens at other spots when a Universal film scores big at the box office.”

While the thinking outside the box is commendable, the fact that it’s so common roads are being rerouted suggest something.

You should do something better with felled trees. Buy some coffee. Get some work done.

Surrogate advice from my grandmother: You’re a writer. Don’t be tacky.
