 Song mood: The Globe by Big Audio Dynamite (BAD).


Miranda.  It was an interesting show.  Not what I was expecting.  The perfomance by the singers was great.  If they were going with animation, I wish they would have hired a team of artists.  I know animation is difficult and takes time.  But this looked like it was done in a computer simulation program.  If they hired twenty artists and did an animation that matched the cover posters for the program, it would have been way better.  But that is my opinion.


Three more episodes and I will be finished with the original Inspector Morse.  In the laters seasons, it’s a whose who of british movies.  Many Harry Potter actors.


Tonight Son of Dracula will be on Svengoolie.  @realsvengoolie has been more active on IG.  And that’s how I knew Son of Dracula was playing.  I miss watching horror show host movies.  The horror show hosts do some quirky comedy before and after commercials.  And play some really cool old horror movies.


I’m currently listening to The Dogs of Riga by Henning Mankell.  I haven’t decided on what I will listen next.  A few weeks from now The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by VE Schwab will be out and I will listen to that.


I have a cast of characters for my mystery.  Next I will work on their motives and alibis.  At the moment I am doing the little things until I get the momentum for writing.  Once I have enough momentum, the project will get under way.

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

Anticipated Books of 2021

For me, the two most anticipated books are both by Silvia Moreno-Garcia.  The first one is Certain Dark Things to be released 7 September and the second is Velvet is the Night to be released 17 August.  Both are after my birthday so they can’t be my birthday book.  Which is too bad.  Garcia proved she could very write well with Mexican Gothic .  I’m inclined to believe she is the best writer out there. Currently I’m listening to Untamed Shores , Garcia’s thriller that was released last year.  It is similar to Mexican Gothic except without the elements of horror. Speaking of the birthday book, I finally chose the one.  And this time there will be no hiccups.  This year’s birthday book will be: The Album of Dr. Moreau by Daryl Gregory.  The book is set to be released on 18 May.  Three months before my birthday and if the book is to be pushed out, I think it would about a month or so.  It’s a murder mystery that involves a boy band formed by the animal people from The Island of Doctor
