HOLY CRAP! When did it get to be Wednesday?

What the hell?
When did that happen?

I had to spend a few days doing work that actually makes money so I have not been able to write or blog or write!


I will have to make up for it in the next few days.

It's also that time of year when the magic box in the living room starts showing all of my favorite TV shows again! YEAH!!! It's very distracting but I try to remind myself that TV holds an important place in our lives.

First, I am a child of the 70's/80's and there is no doubt that I grew up in front of the box and continue to be its slave.

And like reading, we use TV to escape our daily stresses, to use our imaginations and to be entertained.

I love being entertained!
I may not have been writing but I have been thinking about my book's criminal element.

I was talking about the plot with my 'editor' SUZ and she was trying to figure out why my 'bad guy' did bad things.

I reminded her that some people were just bad or evil or worse.
Maybe there wasn't an explanation.
Maybe there were too many explanations.

But her unease at the reasons behind the crimes I have already written about have stayed with me.

I will have to come up with some juicier tidbits then to make us all happy.

Guess it will be time to stalk the FBI website again!

Read through a lot of blogs this morning trying to catch up. So much good information out there. I'm bad with leaving comments though. I really need to do that more often.


  1. well the good thing about giving your bad guy a reason to be bad might open doors for u to make him the hero in your next novel, some of us love a bad boy we can change

  2. Have you been updating w/o sending me stuff to preview?!?! You're the bad guy!!! :-)

  3. Been doing some "light reading research" for you in The Murder Room, excellent book. Got some info abt some types of killers for you. Found one that explains why someone might kill someone in the exact manner you described to me.

  4. Joanna - Never say never, right?

    Anon - Well...I have had to re-write some stuff so you will have to go back a bit. But I'm not ready to send it yet.

  5. Suz - Love it! Can't wait to hear about it!

  6. I'm with you: What the heck happened to Monday and Tuesday??!
