Intro to TV Writing
As a Screenwriting Student, I can never get enough basic tips on how to do something. Even something as simple as TV writing, which is what I learned first can be so tedious and difficult. I found this while surfin the web.

Like the Beatles song catalog or the spectrum of colors in a bag of M&Ms, there's a good chance TV writing structure is already ingrained in the recesses of your psyche. All those Saturday nights spent indoors on the couch in front of the boob tube are no longer hours wasted. Oh, no. You were doing research, and all that hard work is about to pay off!
