What I'm Reading
I'm a little over halfway through Devil's Peak, an excellent novel by South African crime writer Deon Meyer. I haven't read anything by this author before, but chose his book at random as I wandered the stacks at the library. I picked up another one as well, Blood Safari. Meyer is an outstanding writer.
Mystery Lovers' Kitchen
If you don't already visit Mystery Lovers' Kitchen, you're missing a lot of fun and some excellent recipes from a group of food niche mystery writers. This Angel Food Cake with No-Brainer Blueberry Sauce looks so good. This is where you'll find Riley Adams (also known as Elizabeth Spann Craig), the author of the upcoming Memphis Barbecue Mysteries. Memphis Barbecue. Yum. Stop by the blog and check out Riley and the rest of the contributors.
Today and tomorrow are writing days. I had a laundry list of chores to do first, but I'm about to open my Word document and charge ahead. Earlier in December I estimated I'd have a first draft in 10,000 words. It's now almost 10,000 words later, and I still have more story to tell. I blame it on my characters who decided they weren't finished yet. Or maybe I'm having trouble letting go.
Anyway, I'm logging off the internet now and won't be back until much later (or even tomorrow). What are you doing this weekend?
