Thursday is my favorite day of the week. More accurately, Thursday night is my favorite night of the week. TV Night.
I know some writers shun TV - I used to do that. But you know what? My writing was stuck back in the '80s, and my dialogue was in the toilet. (Some of my writing is still stuck in the '80s, but #donttellmyteacher - I'm working on that, I promise.)
TV is a way for those of us who don't live with representative members of our target audience to get with the program in terms of our dialogue. Why pass up an opportunity like that? I say, pick a new show every week that your audience watches, make up a big bowl of popcorn, grab your notepad, and settle in. You just might learn something.
What do you think? Are you a TV lover, or a TV shunner?
