How do I pitch ideas to a TV producer?

Pitching to TV: I'm a writer and used to pitching ideas for magazines (mostly print) and then writing the story, sending the invoice, and getting paid. I have a great opportunity to pitch ideas for a TV show (on public television). The show is already in production and has money for next season lined up. Has anyone transitioned from print to TV? How do I charge money for this? [more inside]

Avoiding plagiarism - specific questions on attribution...

I am writing a book - a non-academic, non-fiction book. I am using lots of academic materials as sources, and generally I simply mention the source in the text when I am quoting directly - or summarizing an original idea contained in the source (I use footnotes when the attribution requires more info and interrupts the flow of the story I am telling.) I am, of course, especially concerned with the issue of plagiarism - I am keeping my notes tidy, attributing as above, and otherwise following the various rules I've read in the different handbooks for academic writing I've studied. But here are two questions.... [more inside]

Famous Writing Habits?

Famous Writing Habits? I come across sites dealing with a few here and there but there is no great collection I can find. Common examples: Hemingway's habit/belief of 500 words per day, Faulkner drinking whiskey whilst writing, Balzac drinking 10+ espressos a day, Thomas Wolfe's habit of writing standing up and his prolixity (so much so that Max Perkins had to substantially edit his work). Certain writers lived philosophies on first drafts/revisions, words/hours per day, etc etc. I have no problem locating famous quotes, but I'm more interested in info about actual behaviors. Hope that sounds right. Thank You in advance.

Both Sides Now

I have this little trick I do. I draw and write with both hands at the same time, my left hand mirroring the movements of my right. I also find it a lot easier writing notes backward with my left hand. Is there a name for this, and is this kind of symmetrical left/right thing common?

PublishingAuctionFilter: I'm looking for online, eBay-like auction companies/sites that allow: a) writers to auction articles/books to publishers (of books, magazines, newspapers, websites, whatever); b) publishers to auction licensed articles/books to other publishers (ditto); c) publishers to auction ad space to advertisers (“media buyers,” as they say). I've got one so far: eBay is setting up a system to do C. Anyone have A or B? Thanx.
