Song mood: Girl All the Bad Boys Want by Bowling for Soup.  Not sure if this accurate.


I can’t really elaborate.  I might think it’s okay to say that I like a certain type of woman, but really it’s easy for me to dig myself in a hole.  So needless to say whoever I find attractive is the most beautiful woman ever.  

I think all my life I have been looking for a Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley.  Someone I could bounce ideas off of.  Someone who will work with me and I work with her on artistic projects.  Mary Shelley would seem as someone who is plain looking, but I think her attractive.  She wrote Frankenstein after all.  She was quite smart.  Cleverness is what I find most attractive in a woman.


So Saturday.  I’m still having issues with my car.  I’m not really ready to give up on it.  I would need advice.  But before that, I will do some tune ups and one thing I didn’t think to do because I’m not a mechanic, calibrate the sensor.  On one of the parts that I bought to fix the problem said that one should drive up to 70 mph and coast until 40 mph three times.  Another website says to rev the engine up to like 4000-7000 rpms and let it slow down three times.  Anyways.


Tomorrow is another day.  I will work with the car a bit.  Buy some cigars.  Smoke some cigars.  Get some walking in.  Read the book that I have been anticipating so much over the year.


Sunday, will be a day with cousins.  We’ll watching things, maybe finish the Umbrella Academy season 2.  The first episode of Endeavour is Sunday.  Endeavour is probably my favorite show.  Enough where I made a trip to Oxford and will do so again just to be in the atmosphere.


If I get things working again with my car, I’ll probably get a hotel in Lincoln and order take pizza from the mellow mushroom for my birthday.  Maybe convince some friends to join me at the pizza place.  There’s something about spending a night at a motel/hotel and eating pizza that is attractive to the the mystery writer.


There are things I would like to say here, but know enough to wait.  Life happens.  I know that everything will work out in the way it should.  Still it’s stressful until the events happen.

  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: In Too Deep by Genesis. It’s been an Inspector Morse weekend.  I’m halfway through the original series.  I think I came upon an understanding.  If the show follows the book closely, it will say based on the book.  After the second season, the shows stopped following the books closely and then it says based off the characters.  Some of them say based off an idea by the author, which would indicate that the author collaborated with the producers for the screenplay. The other thing that I realized is that if they are going to follow the series, Chief Inspector Thursday won’t be in the new show for much longer.  Which this last season hinted at. I expect to work on my own mystery this week.  It happens in Sandy, England.  My Inspector Trevor is surnamed after the Irish author, William Trevor.   Trevor is one of the biggest names in literature.  Or he was when I attended college for Creative Writing.  I’ve read a few of his short stories.  I think I should listen to a fe

Trends on Horror

Here are some trends I picked up on recently. The big push for horror isn’t in October.  It’s June, July and August.  As someone who self publishes books, I’m not at all interested in what’s trending.  Mainly because I just need to write as many and publish as many books as possible.  Following trends gets thrown out the window when you want to publish four to six books a year. I already knew that books and dvds, perhaps most streaming get released on Tuesdays.  At one time I knew why. It was the whole business of everything getting shifted because of the pandemic that I realized that the push for horror was June through August.  Harrow the Ninth was supposed to be released in 25 June and now is 4 August.  The Night of the Mannequins by Stephen Graham Jones was supposed to be released on 14 July and is now 1 September.  That was supposed to be my Birthday book this year. What I found out about Stephen Graham Jones is that a novel of his should have already been released, but i
