December 2: Writing. What do you do each day that doesn’t contribute to your writing — and can you eliminate it?

TV. The one thing I noticed most when I started writing every day for NaNoWriMo was how much less TV I watched. At the end of October I finished watching the series to date of Eureka, and, in keeping with my tradition of having a series to watch at all times, should have started something new. But I didn’t, because I knew I’d spend 1-2 hours or more every day writing, and it was hard enough to keep up with the shows that I was already watching. I haven’t missed it.

I can’t eliminate TV entirely. That would just be silly. Clearly I need a mindless escape. But I like that I’ve cut it down significantly.

On that note, it IS nearly Christmas and I AM looking for another series to watch in December. Preferably one with less than 5 outstanding seasons. Don’t want to waste too much time.

    Ooh, TV. Well, my favorite show on right now is Fringe, currently in its third season. First season was pretty good, but they really found their groove by the second season. Another show that I’m really loving now is Nikita, which is conveniently only in its first season–easy to catch up :)

    I might have to check out Fringe. And I definitely thought Nikita looked interesting… Thanks for the suggestions!
