Reading — Just finished a soon-to-be-published psychological thriller. Awesome. Will tell you all about it when the time comes.

Reading/Listening
Finished listening to Revenge of the Spellmans…not sure if this didn’t work for me as well as the first two because I listened to it, instead of reading it, or if it was the book itself. Loved the first two Lisa Lutz books, only liked this one.

Listening
Trying to get into a dark headspace to finish up revisions of a manuscript which means I’m back to the Torchwood: Children of Earth soundtrack. Can’t seem to get myself depressed enough….

Watching
My email obsessively

Writing
-Requested revisions for a dark thriller
-First chapter and synopsis of comedic crime novel I want to write next
-Non-fiction pieces for an upcoming project

What are you R,L, W, and/or W–ing?

  1. First, how fabulous-sounding is “comedic crime novel”? Quite fabulous, I would say.

    Reading: BAD THINGS HAPPEN by Harry Dolan. Great writing, but maybe a slowish start. And ON WRITING by Stephen Kings, which needs no words.

    Listening: To a new writing playlist. It’s a weird mix of rock, alternative, and opera. One minute The Clash is playing, then it’s Pavarotti.

    Watching: SELLING NEW YORK. It’s a show I just discovered on HGTV. I cannot get over what $1 million buys you in NYC real estate! (The answer: not very damned much.)

    Writing: Just started my WIP over again (4th time’s a charm?), but don’t want to jinx myself, so that’s all I’ll say for now.

  2. R – Along Came a Spider ( then I am going to read Kiss the Girls), this is very unusual reading for me, tried to figure the order of the series of Alex Cross . HOPE I do not get NIGHTMARES! Lots of people better hope this, because my insommnia is bad enough!(but I actually am enjoying Paterson)

    W- My kids pick basil and tomato from garden to distribute amoungst my “friends” :)- The TOMATO hast runneth over the garden!!! Also enjoying watching them pick and eat them right from the vine. I think there was a “CREEPY MOVIE” years ago about a giant killer tomato, or some vegetable…LOL! Anyone remember or am I just nuts?
    DEATH by tomato , I ‘ll take it.

    W – old DVRed episodes of Psych, House and Modern Family while hitting the DREADMILL( which BTW) is going….slow but going.

    L – Alot of mixes that include EVERYTHING on my IPOD for running.

  3. R – Twilight. Because my sister made me cave, and I figured it would be interesting to see what readers loved so much about it. More on that later.

    L – Only the radio in the morning while taking care of baby.

    W – Sometimes throw a HBO movie on in background when late afternoon sets in and baby and I have been alone all day and are playing but tired. Usually I put on something I’ve seen before so that I only have to pay attention with half an ear. Really, I just need the voice of others sometimes!

  4. Jenny — Wow, The Clash to Pavarotti — the idea makes my head spin. I hope 4th time IS the charm for you.

    Running — I remember that movie I think it was Attack of the Killer Tomatoes! Can’t wait to hear what you think of Spider and Kiss the Girls!

    Cyndi — I haven’t read the Twilight books. Saw the first two movies…the second movie may very well make it to my “most boring movie ever” Top 10 list.
