In the fall of 2007, things went a little haywire on TV when the Writers Guild of America went on strike. Ten years later, members of the Writers Guild have once again approved a strike authorization plan. Their contract runs out on May 1, and if they can't reach agreement with producers, they'll walk off the job the next day.

How do you think a writers strike would affect you, if at all? What type of work do you do? And were you affected by the 2007 strike?
