For many of us here on the Stage 32 platform (myself included), sitting at the table with other writer's to flush out a season for TV is more than just an image glued to a vision board. It's a dream. It's why we get up in the morning and flush out storylines and story arcs and practice the art of bible writing until we're blue in the face.
It's why we take the part-time job or work the night shift.
It's why we sacrifice living large until our words are noticed.
And all the while, as we dream and paste new images on our vision boards, the landscape of television writing is changing.
For the past five years or so (maybe more, depending on the project), "mini-rooms" have popped up throughout Hollywood. In a word, a mini-room is a smaller version of a full scale writer's room. There are less people at the table with no promise of a show coming to fruition. This "mini" version of a writer's room allows showrunners the opportunity to offer a truncated writing process that gets to a decision faster in a way that saves time and money.
And let's face it.
Everything today seems to be about time and money.
