I highly recommend writers read as many books on production as they can, even just 1 or 2. It's already clear after 100 pages of a single book why and how producers make the decisions they do. And it would make any rejection less painful understanding that representing a film is a big and difficult commitment for a producer.

And for sure knowing production tools and techniques will enhance your writing.

My two cents.

Not a book, but a really good resource is Todd Garner's Producer's Guide Podcast.

HTH,

Don't think I have ever listened to a podcast before, but this seems really interesting. I'll give it a shot. Thanks for the tip!
