Advice on Writing, and Why I’m Not Watching American Idol This Year

First things first: I came across these two lists of writing tips by famous authors. Very entertaining, for the ones I disagree with as much for the ones I agree with. So interesting to see how different writing is for everyone.

Second: American Idol. Yeah. I’m not watching this year. Why? Well, I sat down and thought back on all the other four or five seasons I had watched. To watch all of an AI season (not counting the stupid audition shows and Hollywood week, which I’m prone to skip), takes a good 50 hours, more or less. So it boiled down to this: did I feel like 50 hours of American Idol was worth my time?

It wasn’t.

End of story.

    Re: I’m not
    Because it’s a time sink. I’ve watched and enjoyed the seasons, but I’ve never really been fans of the winners. I mean, I like them as people, but I don’t care for their music. So why bother?
