 DMRF: Forms of Dystonia: Writer's Cramp   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Common manifestations of simple writer's cramp include excessive gripping of the pen, flexion, and sometimes deviation of the wrist, elevation of the elbow, and occasional extension of a finger or fingers causing the pen to fall from the hand.
Writer's Cramp is believed to be due to abnormal functioning of the basal ganglia, which are deep brain structures involved with the control of movement.
Since writer's cramp generally affects only a local area of the arm under certain activities such as writing, surgical treatments are not usually considered.

Screenwriters, scenarists or script writers, are authors who write the screenplays from which movies and television programs are made.

 Carole King : Writer - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect
Writer is the most underrated of all of Carole King's original albums, in that it was completely ignored when it came out in 1971 and didn't really start to sell until Tapestry whetted everyone's appetite for her work.
It's an album of its time, in both King's life and career, and the music of its era -- singer/songwriters were still something new, and in 1970, it was assumed that anyone in rock had to tend toward the extrovert and flashy to attract attention.
Thus, Writer has a somewhat louder sound than the relatively lean, introspective strains of Tapestry which followed.

 Writer
Being a creative writer can mean a lot of different things: authoring fictional books, creating poetry, fictional writing for magazines or online publications, being a playwright, or even working on comic books or for greeting card companies.
There are few full-time jobs for creative writers, so a big part of the job is marketing yourself as an independent worker.
Most creative writers have at least a bachelor's degree, although this field pays little attention to degrees and certifications for the most part.

"What is a writer who likes to write longhand supposed to do when she hits her stride and then realises, to her horror, that she has covered every bit of blank paper in her bag?" she asked, horrified at the thought that Edinburgh university students have abandoned pen and ink for laptop computers.
Her legions of fans, terrified at the prospect of any delay in the publication of the next - and, indeed, the final - installment of the Harry Potter saga, or perhaps anguished at the thought of a check to Rowling's inspiration, took pity on her plight and began sending in books-worth of the stuff.
