Song Mood: Love and Affection by Nelson.  I don’t know why that song was stuck in my head.  My first concert was Nelson because my sister wanted to go see them and I had my driver’s license.  My parents would only let her if I went too.  So my first real concert was a glam band.  The frontmen for the band were sons of Ricky Nelson who died tragically in an airplane crash.  I imagine that they were something of dreamboats, in which my sister was a fan before she got into heavy metal music.

Super tired today.  The dog barked all night.  I tried sleeping in my car, but after four hours decided it was just too cold.  I got an hour of sleep before going to work in my makeshift office.  Good thing I only had to work for a couple of hours.  I told my cousin about it and he said I should have told someone, but I hate waking people up at night.  After work, I got about a couple of hours of sleep and then walked around the lake.

So, it’s been a crap day and the only thing that I could do that was useful besides work was exercise.  Tomorrow.  Tomorrow is the day.

Tomorrow is the day that I get back to writing.  I will work on finishing the current project plus write a scene or two for the next project(s).  I have to tackle the series stories differently if I’m to ever make progress on this seven story project.

I want to write a murder mystery parody that has a vicar, a priest and a detective in a small English community.  I will call it Murder Town.  Where the supporting characters of a murder mystery talk about all the murders that happen and how the town restocks itself.  It could be a Milo de Ford story where he travels into this unique world, where 12 people a year are murdered.

I just finished an at home workout.  Five minute dumbell routine followed by 100 squats.  My heart beat so hard and fast during the squats that I began to sweat by the time I reached 35.  So this is the routine that I need to do before walking around the lake.  This is the key of how I will lose 3 stones in weight.

Audible had this promotion that if you listened to 3 different titles or 3 different styles of audio programs that you would receive a $20 credit for Amazon.
And so with the credit plus $9 I bought three novellas.  They will arrive at the end of the month.  One of the books that I bought was In an Absent Dream by Seanan McGuire, now I have the all of the Wayward children series.  Then I also bought Atrocities by Jeremy Ship and The Murders of Molly Southbourne by Tade Thompson.  The later is the one that I’m most excited about.  I read the sample for it and thought it brilliant.  It’s about a girl: if she bleeds, a clone is formed by her blood and they or she must kill the clone.  From what I read, it sounded clever and is the perfect length: 90 pages.

So yeah, I think I will continue watching Father Brown because I don’t need to think real hard and just simply be entertained.  While if I continued watching Altered Carbon season 2, my head would hurt because sometimes that show is a real mind bender.  Tomorrow.  I will write, walk around the lake and plan.  I will plan out a future and hopefully by following the path a significant other walk on that path with me.

I am in the habit of buying Moleskine journals.  I think they are great.  However, I'm more of a typer than a writer.  And if I ever wrote in my Moleskines as much as I journaled on my computer and for my blogs, I would fill volumes.

Song Mood: Funky Town by Lipps Inc.  As a strange thing happened as I was walking around Wally-world for no reason.  That song had been playing on the radio.  One of the workers of the store was singing the song, after it had played and then I sang it while I was looking for stuff.  Other shoppers were singing it after I passed them.  It was like a chain Funky Town performance in a store.
I am super tired as I am always during this time of the year tired.  Today, I felt a lot of pain in my back and sides, kind of like where my gallbladder used to be.  I stopped eating fried foods a little over a week ago.  Who knows.
I know I’m sounding like a broken record, but something needs to change.  Tomorrow needs to be a new day.
I went to the writer’s group tonight, not that many since the facilitator wasn’t there.
Tomorrow will be a day for taxes.  Then I will attempt to do some writing.  I came up with an idea for the project I’m working on.  Glum triggers Milo’s gift and in the process, M…

It’s been a long day.  I woke up at 4:30am, hungry.
I went to Walmart to do the weekly grocery shopping.  I went to the lake.  I didn’t go out really.  Tomorrow will much of the same.
I didn’t get much of anything done, except for getting groceries and exercise.
I did watch The Pale Horse, a movie on Prime based off of Agatha Christie’s novel by the same name.  I thoroughly enjoyed it.  I haven’t read the novel and at this time I’m not sure I would have time, or it would be down the list by a lot.  I was most impressed with the wife in this little mini series that was the length of a movie.  The way she knifed a pillow, just gave me the chills.  And I thought that if I ever married Agatha Christie, I would sleep with one eye open.  She plotted out thousands of deaths within the hundreds of books she published.  I have a feeling that if I were married to her, she would have me on a leash and I would be happy because I would actually learn how to write mysteries.  Rufus Sewell has to b…
