Nature of Work
Scriptwriters can work in a group or on there own depending on who they are working for.
Can work where ever when ever they want. Normally inside and one place.
Training & Preparation
Need a high school diploma but going to college can be helpful
Every writer gets paid differently. It all depends on why you are writing and how many producers buy copies of it.
Script writing will be around for a while. Without script writers we wouldn't have television shows, if we did they wouldn't have any sound.
If writing scripts doesn't work out I could always write for broad casting, motion pictures, or continuity.
