Mrs. Ron here, aka Terry Dresbach Moore, wife of Ronald D. Moore, of Battlestar Galactica, Trek, Roswell and Carnivale.
We keep getting asked by fans what they can do to support their favorite writers, who are on strike.
If you are one of those, here is what you can do. Go to http://www.fans4writers.com.
It is an amazing site developed by fans, for fans.
They have put everything together for fans who want to get involved. There are campaigns to participate in, signs and postcards to download, forums to talk to other fans of your favorite show, and the fans of other shows, all discussing what they can do to help.
Someone in an official capacity the other day asked me what fans can do? I answered that I have been completely amazed at who fans REALLY are. That they are this incredible force, the voice of the audience, and it is a voice that is untapped in all of this mess.
You guys are the viewers, you are the ones these shows are for. Maybe it is time to get united and truly become to the powers that be, what you already are, the third piece in the puzzle.
Imagine fan rallies across the country where thousands of fans are speaking up and letting their voices be heard, imagine bags of mail, mountains of pencils. This is an amazing opportunity to come out from the shadows of message boards and into the forefront.
These are the shows you love enough to post on message boards about, to show up to conventions for, these are the writers who write those shows!! Join in and letís get those shows back on the air.
Ron is posting there, and we expect other show runners to join us, and engage in a dialogue with their fans.
Hope to see you there!
