The wonderful Carrie Elks has set this week's blog hop topic:
The new fall TV schedule is here - what are you watching and why do you love it so much? Does what you watch influence your writing?
If you joined me from Leslie Hachtel, welcome!
For someone who works in television, I watch very little of it in the evening. That's usually my writing time, after a full day of work dealing with actually operating a small market TV station.
Recently Mr. C and I have been streaming The Killing – a very well done police drama based on a Danish book but set in Seattle and filmed in Vancouver. How's that for global? We're also huge fans of The Big Bang Theory and Modern Family, even though they are losing a little bit of the zing they had in the first few years.
My biggest vice when it comes to TV, though, is The Voice. It's great background for writing – I can keep up with both without too much trouble. I love the dynamic between Adam (le sigh) and Blake, and am quite impressed with Miley so far. And as far as I'm concerned, Alicia Keys is just amazing no matter what she does.
I can't say my television viewing influences my writing too much. I am loving The Killing because of the great character development, but I'll never be able to write comedy so the sitcoms are strictly for fun. One of my books is based on a reality show, but nothing like the voice – Chef d'Amour is more a combinations of Iron Chef meets The Bachelor.
