Friday Freeday: Writer Because of TV?

Happy Friday!

SO, as I was reading another lady's blog for Express Yourself (Melissa over at My Creatively Random Life), I realized something.

Most writers say, "I read this, and I knew then that I wanted to be a writer."

As some of you know, the first real story I started writing was about mutants living in a school. Why? Because I was watching X-Men. I'm almost sure this isn't normal, and nowadays, I think that I probably should've stayed in Writing for Film/TV, because even though books make me want to write, my first passion happened because of a tv show. Also, still to this day, I'll watch something and think to myself, "I can't wait to have my own movie!"

I love acting out scenes to myself (which if anyone walked in on me throwing myself on the floor and crying for no real reason, I'd be thrown on the altar), and I still really want to be published. I also want very much to have a small screen or big screen notch on my belt.

I really hope both happen.


  1. I wrote because of books like Terry Brooks' Shannara series and movies such as Battlestar Galactica and Star Wars - why can't television inspire?

  2. I started writing a sci-fi book when I was a teenager. One of the main characters was Princess Leigh. It took five people telling me that there was already a well known sci-fi with a "Princess Leia" - which sounds the same. And that's how I found out about Star Wars... LOL

  3. TV has inspired me a lot over the years, so I don't think it's strange at all how you were initially inspired that way, too!
