In the past, my writing partner and I have simply used Gmail and Google Drive to organize our research. But recently we (she) discovered Evernote, and we love it! It’s a wonderful way to organize, share, and search our notes, not mention the desktop version syncs with my phone and ipad.

A friend of mine is putting together a comedy writer’s group to meet in North Hollywood. If you’re interested in joining, please email me your contact info, along with a short bio and a list of your current samples, and I’ll pass it along!
Now that we’re back to work on season 2 of The Last Ship, I’m back to experimenting with traffic apps. My favorites are INRIX and GOOGLE MAPS, which I find much more accurate and user-friendly than Apple Maps or Sigalert. That said, my writing partner loves SIGALERT. And my boss swears by WAZE.
What traffic app(s) do you recommend?
No. Here’s the harsh truth — potential employers in this industry don’t care about your grades or essay writing skills. They want to know if you’re a good employee.
Do you show up on time or are you chronically late? Do you follow directions? Do you take initiative? Are you well-liked by fellow employees? How do you deal with difficult customers?
References should be former bosses or supervisors, not teachers.
