Almost all writers I've listened to say to turn off the TV. I wonder why that is? If you watch TV series with good stories, surely they'll give you inspiration? It's the same thing with video games. RPGs could teach you a bit about storytelling. Movies too, of course. As long as you place writing as your priority, shouldn't it be okay to engage in these other hobbies? They have the potential to motivate. What do you guys think? Thanks.
