Song mood: Everlong by the Foo Fighters.
So I am making progress in the Eileen Dover’s Seattle Adventure novel. I hit 16,000 words tonight, roughly 65 pages. I have been writing 1000 words a day. I set up the Word doc for the manuscript. So far, the book has the title page, copyright page and the dedication page. Once I finish the rough draft, I can run it through my Prowritingaid app. The sections where I dictated, I will have to go through and clean up before putting them through the app. I’m making progress and I’m happy about that.
And because I have been writing more on the project, I do fewer posts. And then I realize, it’s been a while since I did a post. Eventually this website will be more a travel writing website in the future.
I’m still listening to The House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas. I’m liking the book. As I may have mentioned, it reminds me of the Altered Carbon series with a touch of romance.
I think it’s a romance and not a love story. In the genres, the love story is where two people hook up but aren’t together at the end and they go their separate ways. A romance is where the two people hook and are together at the end even though they have been fighting like cats and dogs through out most of the book. A sweet romance is a romance where no action is described below the neck, unless it’s hand holding. In other words the most action you will see in one of those books is kissing.
Over the weekend, I watched Upload season two. I thought it was okay. The first season was a bit better. In season one, Nathan, the main character has just been uploaded because he was in a car crash that resulted in his death. In this fantasy, when people die, they get uploaded into a matrix and continue their life in this computerized world. So it was about him trying to adjust and figure out who killed him. The second season, he discovers who was involved in his murder. Overall, it’s a neat little series.
I also finished watching Sister Boniface, which is a spin off of Father Brown. What I like about Boniface is, that the nun is a police consultant. She has an official role with the police.
Well, that is me for the moment. Writing a mystery, watching mysteries and reading mysteries.
