SHARE Was the writers strike worth it? Tell us!

At long last, the writers strike could be over this week. We’ve heard from readers who bucked up and stood with the writers during their strike holding out for a share of digital and new media royalties and readers who quickly soured on the glut of reality TV and scolded the writers for holding the industry hostage.

We writers here at a unionized newspaper, well, most of us are happy the country was reminded that writers have value and that life suffers a little without their stories.

But how do you feel? Did the strike accomplish anything? Was it worth it? What are you most excited to see return to the small screen?
