How Strikers Pass the Time in L.A.

What do writers do when they’re not picketing? Are they home making new signs? Are they scribbling down ideas for the next episode of Lost just in case? Or, are they wandering aimlessly down the Walk of Fame in tattered clothes, talking to themselves about the Man?

While some writers may be storing their pencils and nuts for the Winter, others are picking themselves up, and “getting back out there.”

Take Miranda, for example. She’s a Democrat, she’s into alternative energy solutions, and she likes to hike. And so, a Meetup Group called Screenwriters On Hikes was born.

Need a break from the keyboard? Is your ass trying to cross state lines? This weekly hike up Runyon Canyon is for screenwriters and TV writers looking for motivation to actually move around. Kicks off every Tuesday, 11am sharp (get there a little earlier), at the Vista Street entrance to the park, just North of Franklin in Hollywood.

What are you doing with your free time, Hemingway?
