Next Up

 Today, I walked around the lake.  I decided that 20 degree weather on a sunny day isn’t that bad and walked the big loop.

I signed up for an online class on Udemy.  Editing Mastery: How to Edit Writing to Perfection.  A class that was normally $94 dollars was on sale for $9.99.  It’s a seven hour course on my favorite subject of editing.  For me, it’s a part of the skillset that is most important to me: to be able to edit.  I will look for other online courses through out the year to improve other skillsets.


Next up for listening.  After Sixty-One Nails, I will be listening to The Seine by Elaine Sciolino.  After that will be The Secret Adversary by Agatha Christie which is currently free on Audible.  And then Untamed Shore by Silvia Moreno-Garcia.


Next up for reading.  After The Pale Horse, I will read Endless Night by Agatha Christie.


Today the final season of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has been released.  So I will be watching that from today until Saturday.

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
