After the series ends...

I've spent way too much time on Netflix lately and not enough time writing. Last night I finished the last two episodes of "Sherlock", the BBC television show with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. If you are not watching it, you need to be. It's fantastic! The characters are wonderful and Benedict as Sherlock is incredibly amusing.

(As a related side note: the episode - "The Hounds of Baskerville" terrified me! I probably shouldn't have been watching it at night in a dark room, but it was wonderful and scared me. I actually screamed at my computer screen and scrambled to turn a light on. I covered my eyes quite a few times. Delightfully intense!)

I watched the last episode and now I'm in a post-Sherlock funk. I cried the last twenty minutes of "Sherlock" - it was super emotional! I can't wait until series 3 begins. So many questions! I just have to find something to entertain me while I wait. But not another TV show...

So, this brings us to my current writing update. I'm working on my NA Fantasy Romance, Twisted (working title). It's another fairytale retelling with a twist. It's Snow White with a male being the one with dark hair, red lips, and being royal. But he doesn't exactly sing at wells... he owns the love interest, Elara, since she's a slave. It's different from what I've written. Stephen is a bit of a dick and Elara has a big secret. Oo, it's exciting. I just have to actually write it.

If you have the same problem as me, I found an article which may help and make you laugh hysterically.
The 27 Stages of Getting Addicted To a Television Show

I'm off to try to write while actually looking up photos of Benedict Cumberbatch... like this...

And this....


What are you currently work on? Do you have any coping methods for getting over a TV series?

Remember to come back tomorrow to celebrate my 3rd Blogiversary with a giveaway!!


  1. I'm more than a bit addicted to Sherlock too. I want more! I don't think I get over TV shows. I just keep replaying episodes and making new ones in my head. Hehehe.

  2. I went through this after "Les Mis". I felt like I did after I saw "Grease" as a young teen. Practically pathetic--in every way.
    Get the soundtrack.

  3. You're supposed to get over a tv series? I tend to sit on tumblr and dwell in the madness waiting for the hiatus to end haha.

    IM SO HAPPY YOU FINALLY WATCHED SHERLOCK OMG! You're lucky too! You won't have nearly as long to wait as the most of us since the next series will be airing in the Fall!! I'm so excited!

  4. I love love love this show! We can wait together for the next season. :)

    ("The Hounds of Baskerville" terrified me, too, and I totally cried in the last episode of Sherlock. I love it!)
