The First Time I Got Paid for It
Writers' Tales From the Hollywood TrenchesBook - 2000
"The First Time I Got Paid For It is a collection of essays by America's best screenwriters. Linked by a theme of the writer's "first time" - usually the first time they got paid for their work, but sometimes something a bit more unconventional, each essay investigates what it takes to succeed in Hollywood and what it takes to write well." "Over fifty writers, virtually every big name in Hollywood, have contributed to this collection, which is essential reading for anyone who wants to make it as a writer in Tinsel Town. Each essay reveals what life as a writer in the real Hollywood is actually like. Full of wisdom and incredible stories about surviving in the movie business, The First Time I Got Paid For It is crucial for anyone who's dreamed of hearing their words spoken on the silver screen. It is also a perfect read for anyone who is a movie buff or curious about what happens on the other side of the camera."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
