Tina Fine: I wrote my first script when I was between jobs. That was way back when I was working as an Economist. Nothing came of that script ... I got a job and got busy with work and family. Fast forward to when my kids were 8 and 13 and had more time on my hands and I got an idea for a story and I just started writing. I took a class at NYU - Screenwriting I and thus began my honing the craft.
