So the new fitness habit has taken hold and I think that getting up and knowing I am going to work out first thing (after coffee) is the biggest help. No thinking. No scheduling. Just do it first thing.

I might need to take a similar tact with writing. I’m finding the last month that it’s more hit and miss and takes a lot of mental effort to get going. I need to set it and forget it.

Here are 3 crime fiction links, 2 quotes, and 1 question for this week:



Two quotes from some classic noir this week:

  • “In this world you turn the other cheek and you get hit with a lug wrench.”

  • “That’s life. Whichever way you turn, fate sticks out a foot to trip you.”


  • What is your favorite classic noir movie?

Until next Thursday, happy reading,
