What I Learned About Writing from Watching TV aka Justifying my TV Habit.
S has to be Supernatural
Ah two hot boys saving people and hunting things. Okay, the writing in this hasn’t always been tip top (the episode with bugs in series 1 being an example) but at times it’s sublime (Mystery Spot, where they relive the same day).
The ultimate goal changes as the series goes on. Ultimately, they save people. They banter. They take mythology we know about (fairies, say) and put their own spin on it. We care about the brothers, and their relationship. There are romantic relationships in it, but it’s about family.
Which is refreshing. What relationships do you focus on in your writing? Is it all romantic? What about families? How does that drive your characters or affect them?
