I should be writing. Instead…eavesdropping.

Having already done my daily 500 words…I thought I would do a little experimenting.

I’m not sure what I just did for the last 30 minutes counts as writing per se, but it was a great exercise. I was watching a favorite TV show [I even had the coffee nearby.] and decided to eavesdrop on and–with laptop fired up—furiously type up as much of the characters’ dialogue as possible. Potentially rich material for future work, and if not, just plain fun. It sheds a different light on a TV show and one’s writing. It gave me tons of writing prompts, as well.

Give it a try for a change of pace and a mental jostling.
