Song mood: Life on Mars by David Bowie.
Today was like a no bones day. It rained all day, I couldn’t get my walk in. I listened to Joanna Penn’s Productivity for Authors, it’s something I’m listening to while I’m driving around doing my Sunday thing.
Currently I’m listening to Cold Hand in Mine by Robert Aickman. I decided to switch things up at the end and listen to another short story collection by him. Sometimes it is frustrating because I can’t quite figure out what the supernatural being was in the story. Next up will be Uglies by Scott Westerfeld.
I saw Dune this weekend. It was phenomenal. Visually spectacular. It follows the book closely. Through out the movie, they foreshadowed the ending of the movie well. Like, I knew before watching it, where it was going to end, or what would the most logical place to end the movie. I think there will be only one more movie to complete the series. Which will be a good thing. I thought The Hobbit should have only been one movie. And then Peter Jackson makes a trilogy of three hour long movies.
There were a few places where I cried. One of the reasons I mostly go to movies by myself. Though, I have been feeling a bit emotional lately.
Last week, I started writing these 100 word short stories. I wrote four of them in a day. It’s a start. Anyway, I made two videos out of them. I’m going to write a few more. In this thought process, I think I will try to have a theme for November, which will be space or galaxy. I still have write out scenes for my Dot and Echo. For the Dark Prince at the beginning, I will just wear a plague doctor mask. The cheap one I bought for a comic-con a couple of years ago.
This week, I will work on writing my mystery. I think the concept I need to work on is to just write and not worry about it not being perfect. I will work on 100 word shorts. I will avoid eating candy. Halloweens in the past, I would buy a lot of candy, for the office and whatnot. Some of the offices I worked in before, would have trick or treating. I would buy a lot of candy, like way more than I needed. I’d end up eating a lot of candy. In which, I would be bouncing off the walls. And then I would eat so much candy that I would be sick.
I will try to get more walks in. I will figure out what I need to do in order to finish a writing project.
