Becoming a cartoon author
To write for a cartoon is more than just to create the dialog that the character speaks. Then, you need to convert your mind image into words so that an Animator can easily include an image in your words. The break-in can take a while, but it can take place with the right screenplay, the right animated partners and the right manufacturing comany.
In order to create a winning and saleable screenplay, the website advises screenwriters to minimize dialog, create lively actions, keep your storyline in motion, and avoid scenarios that contain more than two or three person.

Network Writer's Cartoon Test - Writer
Last year, I signed up for a job at Cartoon Network and was asked to take the test. I' had passed the Adult Swim Writer's Test two years before ( "both belong to Turner"). I' ve had to do seven cartoon network pros in seven whole-day.
Sadly, the position I was applying for was put on ice because of the economic downturn. Fortunately, I did not let the economic downturn influence me on my development as a writer.
