The Value Of Boredom

I’ve noticed an interesting dynamic over the last few months, maybe even longer. I’ve noticed that my writing tends to suffer when I watch TV. So I’d watch a movie and stay up late to watch it, and I’m tired the next day. Or I’d find a way to get to sleep early and wake up early to write and then watch an episode. Even if I can watch a movie in the afternoon while my kids are playing upstairs (my wife is minding the kids, Mom), my writing still suffers the next day. No matter how I try to balance things, my writing suffers from TV.
