Finish the Binge

I've been watching non-stop Law & Order. Not the first one -- I never liked the characters in the first one -- but the spin-offs. Criminal Intent and Special Victims Unit. I've almost finished all the Netflix-Instant-Download available seasons.

This may be why I'm not following my usual pattern of binge reading. I'm binge television watching. The problem is that I can read faster than the average bear, but I've yet to figure out how to watch television any faster than it plays. And when I start a series I can't seem to stop until I've finished. Hopefully I'll be able to feel a sense of completion when I finish this season and will then be able to move on to something else.

I wonder if I'll feel a need to continue to watch once I've finished these. I think they're still being made so technically I won't be caught up, but hopefully it will feel like it. I don't have to read the hardcovers when I binge on books, so maybe....

Maybe, I'll finish and be able to turn my attention back to writing. And hopefully I'll stay healthy enough to think. Thinking is useful if I want to write and it would be nice to write again.
