Song mood: The Valley of the Pagans by Gorillaz featuring Beck. The song popped up on my Pandora and I recognized Beck’s voice.
I wrote a flash fiction short story I’m naming Running From the Devil. The name may or may not stick. It’s about a guy who is running and realizes that has been running for an unusually long time and his life is flashing before him. Probably not my greatest story ever, but I wrote it. Been working on writing at least one hundred words a day to keep my writer card.
There’s a story I’m thinking of writing which I’m going to call The Bass Player Who Looked Death in the Eye. Which be kind of a spin off from my short story The Grimm Presents. The new story will be about the unnamed Asian guy. Who turns out to be a bass player for a semi-famous band. I haven’t decided if the story takes place after The Grimm Presents or intersects with it.
Currently, I’m listening to Felicia’s Journey by William Trevor. It’s okay. I like it for painting a slice of life in Ireland and England. I think I’m getting thrown off by the drop downs. There is nothing indicating the drop downs so I don’t realize that I’m in a flashback until a sentence or two. Some of them I’m not sure if there are drop downs as the character seems to be remembering mid scene.
The weekend is coming up. I will probably work on the bass player story. I’m putting together a list of songs with really cool bass lines. Then I will ponder more about what to do for exercise this winter and ways I can change my diet.
