 Song mood: New Sensation by INXS.

I figured it out this morning.  I figured out how the Traveler defeats the Dark Prince.  And on the same token, I figured out how Milo de Ford defeats the Dark Prince.

It is in the realm potential.  The power of the Traveler, of Milo de Ford is in one of the realms of potential.  One realm is the realm of possibility, the other realm is the realm of probability.  The Traveler is able to trap the Dark Prince within the realm of potential, but in the act of doing it, traps himself.

Milo de Ford without knowledge releases the both of them in the series.  In order to defeat the Dark Prince, Milo has to do something similar to what the Traveler did.


I didn’t get much accomplished in writing today.  Just figured something out for the rest of the series.  At the moment, I have my doubts but must soldier on.


I thought about the realms of probability and possibility.  I think I live too much in the world of potential.  Too afraid to move forward because the probabilities are fifty-fifty at best.  Live too much in the world of potential, sure things can become scary and the thought of it’s probably not going to happen can be a comfort.


Tomorrow, I will return to work.  Tomorrow, I will walk around the lake.  I will listen to a book for an hour.  I will write a thousand words.  Tomorrow will be a good day.

  So I made some changes in plan for my birthday.   I decided to get a room at Aksarben Suites.   I’ll spend the day in Aksarben and pretend that I traveled.   What I will have, I’ll decide tomorrow, although I suspect that it will be Pickleman’s pizza.   I’ll read and chill.   Maybe I’ll take a bus to the Dundee Dell.   So many things I can do.   For coffee, I’ll go to the Starbucks on 90 th and Pacific.   That one has the Verismo coffee machine makes an excellent cup of coffee.   I can even take an early walk at the lake as I make my way to Aksarben.

Song mood: Mysterious Ways by U2. Currently I’m listening to The Ruin by Dervla McTiernan.  I’ve listened to a couple of novellas that she wrote where her detective Cormac Reilly briefly shows up in and liked them.  This is the first book with her star detective.  Between McTiernan and Trevor on who writes better suspense, I would say hands down McTiernan.   A person who writes mysteries as a genre follow a set of conventions so that the reader isn’t in a state of confusion.  One great example is putting dates before each section or series of sections.  Literary writers don’t follow conventions and the confusion at times come from the writing.  Where I say, let the characters mislead the reader not the writing itself. I am enjoying The Ruin .  It’s nice to get back to a solid mystery. I continue to walk at the lake.  Although, it’s a modified path where I get around 2.5 miles instead 4 miles.  I still need to figure out what to do for exercise in the winter.  I want to get a rowing m
