My Hero

If you know me, you know that I have an obsession with Grey’s Anatomy. Through this show, I learned what the word “binge-watch” truly means. It was probably the second series I’ve ever watched on Netflix (the first was Desperate Housewives). There were so many episodes in every season so it was a never-ending adventure. It was the first time I had ever felt so much emotion from watching something fictional.

I became curious about who was behind the greatness of Grey’s, so I did a little research and found Shonda Rhimes. My hero. And all of the other shows she had a hand in writing for including Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder. So of course, I started watching those as well.

I was amazed when I realized that each show was completely different and unpredictable, just like the others. It took me a while to get on the HTGAWM train, but here I am. Shonda has me hooked. And I will be on my couch for three hours straight on Thursdays (now that I’m finally caught up on all three shows) because of her writing.

To be a black woman and have three TV shows on a major network simultaneously¬†is incredible. Shonda is such an inspiration to me when it comes to writing. I haven’t tried any fictional writing yet, but because of her work, I may give it a try.

The Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes is a great read, especially in relation to Joyful January and finding happiness. Check it out!
