I don't get much free time. I work 40+ hours a week in a rather stressful job and I try to write or focus on my WIP at least 3 hours a day during the week and far more than that on the weekend.
I did a little bit of math, and I have about 90 hours of "free time" in a week. During that free time I do everything else: promotions for my books, errands, household chores (groceries, laundry), gardening, exercising, socializing, eating, and sleeping.
That just doesn't leave a lot of spare time for TV or movies. I watch about an hour a day of TV (usually on in the background while I do something else) and I do go to the occasional matinee (we usually go to ones where we're the only ones there without kids: Frozen, or How to Train Your Dragon).
I really don't have uninterrupted blocks of time to just view a film (or read a book, but that's another story). I'm sadly out of it when it comes to "water cooler conversation" because I have no idea who's who on Breaking Bad, or Walking Dead, or any other series. I make a conscious effort to NOT watch any series that involves an investment of my time, because my time is more important to me than money at this point.
I don't think that will change when I retire and have lots of "free" time. I'm just out of the habit of being entertained by others, especially when I have so many stories rattling around in my head. I sometimes feel like a Luddite compared to others with Netflix queues a mile long, but hey, that's how it is.
Now let's see ... I think I have some editing to do. Better get at it!
As spring chases away the winter blues, the Roses are finding inspiration in the words of others. For April:
Happiness is like a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you. ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else. ~ Margaret Mead
