 Song mood: Monster Mask by Pomplamoose.

Being tired goes without saying.

I thought I was going to write a two page story every day for October for my official website. But I still haven’t navigated through the apathy I have for my writing. Last year on this website, I wrote my thoughts about ghost stories I listened to, until someone made fun of the fact that I needed to post something every day. Then I stopped. Maybe I will write horror stories, just not as many as I thought I would.

Today, I am going to make an effort for my writing. I’m going to sit down and do something. I don’t know what, but I will do something. My daily poems that I post on social medial will still have the theme of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.

I finally learned 8 form Tai Chi. It will be a staple of my practice during the winter. Then, in spring, I will probably learn Chen style 36 form. And maybe the Tai Chi sword form as well. I’ll know more next year.

Among all the things that I’m learning, I decided to learn basic dance moves. Not that I would go to a club and go dancing. It’s just something that I want to learn. Mainly because I don’t know how and it looks awkward in my videos. In this idea, I don’t want my dancing to look like what if Tai Chi was a dance move. That’s what I’ve done in the past. Martial arts are easy for me to learn. Dancing is not.

I think my task for today is to find a Snape wig. Write tomorrow’s haiku. Write about stories that I want to write. Watch The Bride of Frankenstein, which is one my favorite movies.

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
