I Love Drama

This is a drive by post. I am attempting to turn over a new leaf in which I go to bed at a reasonable hour. Since it is a little after 11 p.m. right now, this post as to be quick and to the point. I realized tonight, after putting off working on my writing to watch Heroes and Studio 60, that I love drama, and my love for drama is going to be my undoing.

Actually, that may not be all that truthful. My love of drama is, most likely, the reason why I can tear through a good book and why I even want to write at all. It is the thing that stirs up my imagination to the point of distraction that all I can do is write something down. However, it is also the thing that keeps me from my pen and pad or, in this high-tech day, keyboard and monitor.

Seriously, I just spent two nighttime hours, which are a high commodity for me because the children are sleeping, the hubby is down, and considerable work can be done, watching television. Why? Because I love the drama. I can't seem to turn off the darn television. Not only did I watch two great shows, but I was also trying to squeeze in a third, What About Brian. Yes! A third.

Last week, I heard Steve Harvey say that he doesn't watch television to the point that he didn't even watch his own television show. My goodness that sounded wonderful. I, for one split instant, thought I would love to be able to do that. That split instant was thankfully gone before it could actually take root, and I was back to my sane self. Let's get serious. I wouldn't survive. Okay, I probably would but I wouldn't like it. Sure, I would get a lot of work done but then I would lose a vital excuse for procrastinating. Now we cannot have that.

Oh boy. It's 11:30 pm and I am still here.

Gotta go!
