Song mood: Something Just Like This by The Chainsmokers and Coldplay.
I just have to believe that the magic is real. Ultimately, I have to have faith. Faith that everything works out the way it is meant to. I find myself in a position where I have to trust faith over logic. That is actually scary to me. I have to trust that people will directly contact me when it is their time to do so.
I started writing again today. I wrote a page. The project I’m working now, I had already wrote fifteen pages before. I read what I had already written plus the timeline for the murder and the brainstorming notes. I made a few corrections here and there. I was surprised as to why I stopped writing the book.
Actually, I didn’t mind what I had written before. It wasn’t bad. I knew it needs a bit of tweaking, but overall, I liked reading it. And that helps.
I thought that the English colloquialisms were appropriate and not over the top. I didn’t have to look them up again. When I watch British murder mysteries, sometimes I have google certain phrases. Just to be certain. Like I get the meaning with the context, but also, I’m interested in the back story of the phrase.
I’m the sort of guy, who, if I had a son, I would insist that we name him Robert. It would be epic. Though, I would pronounce it the way the French do and the boy would say, Dad, you don’t have to say it that way.
I’m going to change Phoebe slightly again. The way I have her written is that she has a sixties bob. I think for this novel, I will have her wearing a double french braid. Since she is fictional, I can let her have which ever hair styles that I like. I could never ask a woman in real life to change her hair. That is a personal thing. Both of those hairstyles are my favorite. But I am okay with any other hairstyle because it’s the woman, not the hair that I’m in love with. So going from the double french braid to a sixties bob will just indicate her passage from being to young to being married.
I realized that I don’t have anything yellow. So the goal for the weekend will be to buy a shirt that is yellow. Most likely plaid. Plaid has always been my winter style.
So tomorrow, I will do some more writing. I will do a little hiking, it’s a bit colder tomorrow. I pretty much finished most of the shows I was watching, or had interest in. So I will look up another mystery series to watch. I have a feeling I will continue watching Ms Fishers Modern Murder Mysteries. I will finish reading a Maigret novel this weekend and start another.
