In this case, I’m talking about my particular guild, Writers Guild of America West. With a very few exceptions, I feel well taken care of by these folks.
(Yeah, that sentence you just read is mostly for those new writers who keep asking me, “But why should I join the Guild?” There are many other reasons as well.)
A close relative of mine just ran an obstacle course made up of the kinds of Palliative Care talked about here. It seems to me that if she’d been eligible, i.e. a WGAW member, the process would have been much less stressful to her and her family.
