Let’s talk about…

Mysteries!!

I started an online class today that’s on Mystery Writing. And now I’m kind of ( very) excited. I loved Nancy Drew/ Hardy Boys books a lot in middle school and recently discovered “ cozy mysteries “ . And , does catching part of Miss Marple on PBS or watching Ghostwriter as a kid count for anything? 😊

I’m curious: what are some of your fave mysteries? ( Any medium)

Hello, Book...

Worms? Cats? Is there something other than bookworm? :P

The library here is doing a Winter Reading Bingo. ( I don’t know how to add pictures or I’d post my card) Basically like regular Bingo except you read a book for each square. Things like Fantasy, A Childhood Favorite ( which I’m reading now ),Book with a Green/ Red/ Blue Cover, Graphic novel, By a Local Author, etc.

Only problem is, I may need help or recommendations for a few things.

A Quirky Family
Book “ Everyone “ Has Read
A Strong Female Character
Retelling a classic
Cozy mystery

Reading!!

Reading, Listening, and Etc.

So how was your Christmas? Mine was great! Spent it in Virginia with family. I thought I’d try doing one of these things.

READING-  13 Doctors 13 Stories. A collection of short stories originally released by Puffin in 2013 for the 50th, this version adds two more stories. Each story is by a different author, and the ones I’ve read seem to range from “ this was really cool!” to “ this was... just okay.”  Also I got a copy of The Doctor Who Dangerous Book of Monsters for Christmas:)

LISTENING:   Doctor Who: Free Speech & The Grey Man of the Mountains, both from Big Finish. The latter is the first monthly range release I’ve bought in a while and it’s excellent so far. Seven, Ace, The Brigadier., a yeti... what more could you want? The former may require a second listen since I’m having a hard time getting into it. 

WATCHING- Doctor Who s4 & SJA. I forgot how much I loved 10 & Donna. And while I haven’t seen all of SJA, I’m definitely enjoying it. 

Into the Labyrinth. This is a series I only recently learned about ( though apparently it aired over here in the 80s?) I’m not super far in but it’s fascinating enough to keep me interested. If you can deal with 70s / 80s Who you would probably enjoy it  Here’s a summary    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Into_the_Labyrinth_(TV_series)

( WRITING- .... uhhhhh...)

‘Tis the season

A friend sent me this a couple days ago.   And I was equal parts amused & excited. Sooo... wonder if ( or how many) I can get these done.

(  Will probably not go in order- and if I may do what [personal profile] thisbluespirit did back in October, suggestions for certain ones are welcome)

 Let’s do this!
  1. Give me a list of two or more characters (same fandom, multiple fandoms, whatever, it's up to you, doesn't have to be a shared fandom, just whoever you want to write).
  2. I'll use them to generate you 3 prompts from the Genremixer!
  3. Go write tropey flashfic from any or all of them & link back here.
