Q: What is it like working as a Script Writer?

Script Writer in Atlanta:
"Broaden Your Horizons."
During school, or even during your first years in the business, you may feel that there is only one avenue for your talents. Don't plan your career path on that judgement. There are many fields with various opportunities that need writing or producing skills. Don't sell yourself short or limit yourself to only broadcast, or only news. Try many different jobs, or freelance! Freelancing gives you the opportunity to try out many different fields of business. The only downside is your your willingness to track down those jobs and "keep yourself out there" - all the time.
