Song mood: Magic by Pilot.

My day in review. 

Well, I worked. 

Till about three. 

Then I looked for my wallet. Wondering where it could be. Couldn’t find it and went to the cigar shop. No one seen my wallet. So I took out the cigar I would have smoked while I walked around the lake. Except today, I told myself I wasn’t going to smoke a cigar.  I ended up not walking and hung out with my crime writer friend and talked about photography. I retraced my steps last night and figured out that my wallet was in the laundry hamper. I had taken it out of the pocket of the shorts I was wearing yesterday. I went home and dumped out all my dirty clothes to find that the wallet was no where near my laundry hamper. So at this point I’m searching anything that has pockets. The wallet was in a pajama pocket. I must have been tired last night and for some reason thought it was a good idea to put my wallet in my pajama pocket. 

I always find a way to outsmart myself.

Then I went to the mall and got a donner kabob with curry fries.

I watched Now You See Me. Probably one of my favorite movies. I watched it this time thinking about Paris. Some parts of the movie, I can remember what it was like being in Paris. Like the section they were in was similar to ones I was in. I just get that feeling. The feeling of being in Paris.

I get emotional at the scenes in the movie that take place in New Orleans. Which makes me think, that the person I should marry a person who wouldn’t think me weird if I were to cry in the middle of the movie for no apparent reason.

I really like watching mysteries, especially with other people because I don’t as emotional with those. Mainly my mind goes in problem solving mode.

I think right now, I have enough time watch a mystery. Tomorrow, I’ll probably go to Fargo. Depending on when I can get the oil changed on my car.

I really need someone to learn French with. I can learn French, but having someone to speak with, would help. But then, that is kind of like writing. I need someone to push me to write.

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
