The Washington Post reports that to pass the time during the Writer's Guild strike, Hollywood creative minds are writing books for children.

The article highlights a plus in joining this industry: "... Creatively and emotionally, the chance to work on something that's personal without the presence of a massive corporation is special," said David Weiss, a writer of Shrek 2. But he and his colleagues are also realistic about the downside: "I don't think anyone thinks they're going to make a lot of money on it."
