Song mood: Zoo Station by U2.
I am always looking for a way to reinvent myself. It’s good to hang out with my best friend from college. It’s just good to talk with him.
We were talking about this video game that he liked called Inscryption. It sounded interesting, though I don’t have much time for games. I mean, there is my writing and then tai chi and other exercises. But the story line for the game sounds interesting. A little gruesome, maybe some good ideas for a horror story.
In the morning, we are the only ones at the tea shop. I imagine the server hears a lot of interesting conversation through out the day. I imagine that she knows that I am crushing on someone online. That I want to go to Australia and that I write mysteries.
Books read so far this year:
Silverview by John Le Carré. (Listened)
Sleep No More by PD James.
Silverview, if I had never read a John Le Carré book, would have been a book that I put down and didn’t pick up again. But since I knew his style, I continued listening. He writes things that are so mysterious and at the same time mundane, that it’s tough finish some of his books. There was little foreshadowing as to what was really going on the story.
Sleep No More was highly enjoyable. Though, these were mysteries, it was no mystery what the story was about. I will most definitely give Cover Her Face another chance. It’s the first Inspector Dalgliesh novel.
A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson.
What I like about Guide is the format of the book. It’s part narrative, part journal, and part interview. I think that it would make the book a bit easier to write. Mainly because you are writing short concise sections.
What I will probably do is continue writing my Inspector Trevor novel while I brainstorm other stories. So that when I finish writing the mystery story, I will have a lot of other stories plotted out and ready to go.
For dance moves, the audio on the video I was using to learn was dropped. I could just watch the video and learn the moves. Or, I can learn a lot of basic dance moves and just scroll through songs that I can use to make the video that would best match the moves.
Last night I watched Black Widow. I liked it, but I can’t put my finger on why, it didn’t excite me. It’s most comparable to The Winter Soldier, which I really liked. In the end, it reminded me of comic book. I know that not all comic books will be awesome.
Today, I will work on my mystery. I will work on my Tai Chi. I’m learning Chen style 8 form. Tonight, I will probably watch Miss Fishers Murder Mysteries.
