I am a self-diagnosed T.V. junkie. I've tried to quit. Honest. I once read an established author's advice saying if you want to be a better writer, turn of the T.V.
I now realize he is insane. I just love drama. Not reality, mind you. I live in reality. I want drama!!
DVRs are a girl's best friend. BUT, I never let the shows get more than a hour past their air time before I am watching them. Let me just clue you in on the seriousness of my T.V. time:
The Good Wife
The Closer (I don't think this is back yet)
The Vampire Diaries
The Office (and occasionally The Office reruns)
Accidentally On Purpose
V - (can't wait for this to come back end of March)
Sons of Anarchy
AND the only reality show I do watch - Psychic Kids - Children of the Paranormal
I had to let Ugly Betty go when it started back in January and I was bummed to see The Dollhouse cancelled.
See what I mean - and it is possible that I have left something off. That is about 14 and a half hours of time I should spend writing. Or should I? It is all about balance right?
Writing makes me happy. T.V. makes me happy. Reading a great book makes me happy.
I want my cake and to eat it too. Don't you?
