 Song mood: Loser by Beck.

I should be writing in my mystery novel(la). I should be reading the mystery novel that I want to finish before August. But I’m sitting at my computer grinding my teeth. I’m listening to Indie Mix on Youtube, which is playing songs that I searched for the most over the past few years.


I’m thinking of what to do for my birthday. I just don’t to listen to ‘the Dude,’ in or around my birthday. 


So I’ll probably go up and visit my mum on the Sunday before. Then travel to Minneapolis on my Birthday. If I do that, then I will eat at Christo’s, which is my favorite Greek restaurant. I would go there with my best friend from childhood and eat there, or at Sushi Tango’s. I don’t want to spend a lot of money, if it’s just me. And if I want to go to Paris next year, I’ll want to save as much as I can.


I wanted to go to Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA. The town that the poet Robison Jeffers lived in. I was too late, when thinking about this. Right now, the round trip tickets are $350. If I would have thought about this a month ago, they would have been $177.


The Suicide Squad will be out on 6 August. I really want to see it. On one hand, DC Comics has really disappointed for movies, but on the other hand James Gunn directed it.


The movie I really want to see is Dune (part 1). Just like The Suicide Squad, it has an all star cast. That one comes out on 1 October.


I need to figure out how to improve my life. So that I’m not always in a situation that I don’t want to be in. What I really need is to find a woman who is wholesome as heck. Someone who will support me as much as I support her. Anyway.


Tomorrow, I will enjoy my weekly cigar. I will write down a list of things I really want to happen in my life. I will write a list of tasks I need to do in order to complete my mystery. Once I finish one, the rest will come rushing out, I hope. Anyway. I know I say that a lot. Sorry. 

I think it has to start with the belief that life will improve. Then to act on the things I can to do to make it so.

  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
