Suspicous Mind
Angela Henry


I've been noticing something disturbing about myself lately. I'm becoming a very suspicious person. I think part of it may be age creeping up on me but I think it's mainly coming from all the negative crap I surround myself with. I guess it's no wonder that this is happening. I mean, I write murder mysteries, I read murder mysteries, and I watch crime related shows on TV, not to mention all the bad news in the papers everyday.

Here is what my weekly line-up looks like.

Monday: Write 1000-2000 words on new mystery novel. Watch BBC Mystery Monday and CSI Miami.

Tuesday: Write 1000-2000 words on new mystery novel. Watch Supernatural and Law & Order SVU

Wednesday: Write 1000-2000 words on new mystery novel. Watch Veronica Mars and CSI New York

Thursday: Write 1000-2000 words on new mystery novel. Watch CSI and Without A Trace.

Friday: Write 1000-2000 words on new mystery novel. Watch Ghost Whisperer, Monk, and Master's Of Horror

Saturday: Write 1000-2000 words on new mystery novel. Watch 48 Hours Mystery

Sunday: Write 1000-2000 words on new mystery novel. Watch Cold Case, Law & Order Criminal Intent, Crossing Jordan

So, is it any wonder I'm becoming so suspicious? I need some laughter in my life don'tcha think? Anybody have any suggestions for some comedies or sitcoms? Just as long as they don't interfere with the above schedule ; ).

Forget TV sitcoms or comedies. If you don't have a subscription to Netflix, then start one. This will allow you to pre-order movies (comedy, action, drama, etc) and watch them when you want outside of your schedule.

Your schedule is somewhat like mine. I feel I have to digest everything crime oriented. The good news is that it helps your writing come alive (I would hope). The bad news is that it can make for a dull personality (usually to those looking in from the outside). But that's their problem, right? In the long run you're honing your craft. :)

Ms. Monkeythong,

I have watched My Name is Earl. Funny funny stuff! Now, if I can just remember to watch it when it comes on.


Sleuth Man,

Yes, crime oriented viewing does add to my writing.So I do want to keep watching it. But I'll look into Netflix. I have some friends who subscibe and they really like it.

Thanks fo the suggestions, Guys!
