I don’t think I necessarily have great book ideas. But I do work at what I have for a long time. Then I do it again. I’m in the middle of the fifth (and final) revision of the fifth Max book. I keep working and whittling until only the good stuff remains. You might not start with a good idea but you can work it into a good result.
It’s slow and plodding, but it can work. Good ideas don’t always come in a flash.
Ok, let’s get to it.
Here are 3 crime fiction links, 2 quotes, and 1 question for this week:
- Lots of crime fiction adaptation news this week. Forget six seasons and a movie, the trend now is movies to TV. TRUE LIES is the latest to attempt the jump to the small screen. BURN NOTICE’S Nix will write the pilot. Always enjoyed BURN NOTICE.
- BEHIND HER EYES is in my top 5 “you” seriously will love this or seriously hate this” book list. Sounds like the upcoming Netflix’s adaptation didn’t shy away from that bonkers ending.
- If you stuck with TRUE DETECTIVE through 3 seasons, it looks like you may be rewarded with a fourth, but perhaps without Nic Pizzolatto’s involvement. Maybe a good thing at this point?
Remember that summer when Matthew McConaughey and TRUE DETECTIVE took over:
“This is a world where nothing is solved. You know, someone once told me time is a flat circle. Everything we’ve ever done or will do, we’re gonna do over and over and over again.”
“The world needs bad men. We keep other bad men from the door.”
- Did you watch season 2 of True Detective?
Until next Thursday, happy reading,
