Song mood: Heartbeats by Jose Gonzalez.
It’s been a just so day. I had today off. I started off with watching Doctor Who. Since I don’t have cable, I bought the season. Which means, that new episodes are released on Mondays on Amazon. On Sunday nights, when the show runs on BBC and BBC America, I scroll fast on certain social media feeds to avoid spoilers.
Then I watched The Witch of Kings Cross, which is about the life and artwork of Rosaleen Norton. Who was this controversial artist in Sydney. My opinion of the documentary was that I think she would have gotten along with Jim Morrison. Anyway, it’s not a movie, or documentary, I would watch with a girlfriend or wife.
If I read the signs right, I will work on a mystery. It will be a mystery in three parts, or, as I like to say in three crimes. Inspector Archibald Trevor and his future wife Phoebe. I think I will make her a middle height-ed miss. Which will make her an inch shorter than Trevor.
I will call the unnamed project Inspector Trevor and His Wife. I’m sure a better name will surface once I finish writing the book.
This weekend, I had been looking for mystery novels to listen to. I was watching this one show called New Blood on Britbox. On the credits I saw the show was created by Anthony Horowitz. I recognize the name from this novel that I noticed but kept on walking past: The Magpie Murders. So that will be something I will listen to in the future.
I also watched a couple of episodes of Dalgliesh. Which is based off of PD Jame’s Inspector Adam Dalgliesh series. Which I really enjoyed. Dalgliesh, when he is not fighting crime, is a published poet. Which, his colleagues use the fact to make fun of him.
Currently, I’m listening to The Secret of Chimneys by Agatha Christie.
I decided that I will listen to The Aeneid while I’m driving. It’s a tough listen. One goddess complaining about the gods and goddess and the Greeks. While mourning the loss of Troy.
So, my bestie and I will be meeting for tea on Saturday mornings. It will be a part of keeping each other accountable for our writing. I think this will be great. And it will ensure that I do get these projects done.
