Song mood: Manic Monday by the Bangles for no other reason that it’s Monday.
The weather is a bit dour, which is a bit uplifting to me. Well, I would rather have cool temps and rain.
It’s been a while since I did one of these. I’ve been writing a bit. Still working on my mystery reader show project, which I have named Eileen Dover’s Seattle Adventure. I have been writing about a thousand words a night on the weeknights. I’m currently up to 10,000 words on the project. I’ve written the scene were I introduced Detective Lund. Though she doesn’t play that big of a role in the book. It’s Eileen’s story, mostly. I’m having more fun with the project now. Things I’m going to add to the story: a fight at a party and a chase scene in London.
I’m still listening to The House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas. I have another seventeen hours left. I have a lot of books on que. But next up will be Bill Bryson’s In a Sunburned Country. It will be part of a study on travel writing.
Currently I’m reading Agatha Christie’s Third Girl. It’s Hercule Poirot mystery. I’m reading it because it has Ariadne Oliver. I rather like that character. In the television series she was played by Zoe Wanamaker (Madam Hooch in the Harry Potter series).
I finished reading Cover Her Face by P.D. James. I rather like Chief Detective Inspector Dalgliesh. He’s a detective and a poet. James is an excellent mystery writer. Once you get past the first fifty pages. Though her short stories are different.
So that is me for the moment, reading, writing and watching mysteries.
