For quite some time now, I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with the old Currently Watching posts from this blog’s sidebar. They’re hard to read on the current archive page, so I toyed with the idea of relocating them to Twitter or Tumblr. (Both of which I hate for crotchety old woman reasons: What’s the world coming to when people think 140-character bursts of nothing and “reblogging” are creative output? Get off my lawn you pesky kids!).
Ultimately, though, I decided to inaugurate a new feature here: Drama Shorts. Tidied up into actual posts, the Currently Watching quips become speedy little overviews of all the dramas I watch, including ones that don’t get written about in more depth. They’re not particularly involved or insightful, but my rationalization is that sometimes you just want to know what you’re getting into when you start a new drama. When I finish watching a show I’ll create a new post for it and delete its entries from the Currently Watching sidebar.
Because I’ve got quite a backlog of this stuff—and because I’ve now officially stuck with this blog for six whole months, miracle of miracles—I’ve decided to celebrate by getting a little crazy and posting two Drama Shorts a day for this whole week. That’s the fruit of more than 160 hours of drama watching, horrifyingly enough (which translates into practically every minute of free time I've had since Christmas).
(P.S. For me, Twitter’s entire existence is justified by this single account: Gosling Literary Agent.)
