You always have the best advice! I love the idea of TV turn-off week, and will definitely switch off. Suddenly the world seems a little brighter, a little better. More time...


My wife just returned from two weeks in Spain. While she was away I didn't turn the tv on one time. Can I gt retrograde credit? ;-)

I'm really looking forward to TV turnoff week--it's like a vacation...more books to read, more writing time, more time spent outside, and just in time for the beautiful Spring weather!


I've had a no tv LIFE. My parents are TV addicts, so one of my ways of rebelling as a teen (and into adulthood) was to keep TV out of my life. Lately I've been watching TV shows on DVD however, to study the writing; Where the structure is divided up, and how they dramatize their act-outs.

I don't watch any actual broadcast TV, and that's never going to change. Waste of time. TV will organize itself around my life, not my life around it. And don't even get me started on Tivo. :)


waspgoddess — So glad this is useful to you!

rel — Retrograde credit? Absolutely!

Sharon — It IS like a vacation. I never thought of it that way before...

Eric — Same here. Been TV free for 2 1/2 years now. Only shows on DVD, etc. I'm surrounded by TiVo addicts trying to assimilate me...be strong!
