 Song mood: Just like Heaven by the Cure.

The no bones day pug is super cute. There I said something was cute. I would love to have a pug. They are a breed of dogs that have moderate to low amounts of anxiety. They’re okay with being left alone. Or, at least, the ones I’ve been in contact with have.

A bit tired today. A bit in a sour mood because I’m tired.

Wrote three lines in my mystery last night. I didn’t like them. But that was a good thing, because I thought of something I did like. I will need to do a little bit more planning. This time, I will need to make a detailed timeline for the story. I plan on starting in the middle.

My new phone came. The transfer of data was amazing. Once it was done, the phone was more or less a clone of the last. Everything was in the same place as it was in the last phone. Though, I was a bit disappointed that there were no headphones that came with the phone. And, there was no charger.

I was surprised on how the screen resolution on the new phone was much more clearer than the last.

Anyway. Fingers crossed, I get a solid six or seven hours of sleep. Tomorrow, I will walk around the lake. I will write a page in my mystery. I will think about someone on the other side of the world. I will read five pages in The Near Witch by V.E. Schwab. It will be a good day.

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
