Ok, so I am pretty sure this whole ROW 80 thing should be fun and interesting… but lately it is starting to feel like the kind of work I would do back in the 1920’s with oh say… a giant lump of coal and a pair of tweezers. Yeah, I don’t know.
I have all these dang gone goals and I feel like by the time Sunday goes to sleep, Wednesday is waking up and screaming in my face! Not to mention I signed up for the NaNoWriMo this year. NaNoWriMo is a huge goal on my list.
As usual, I continue to read and comment blogs. Weee! 😀
Also (as not so usual) I am keeping up with posting my blog entries 1 – 2 times per week.
I am thinking of writing a short story of sorts that will be fictional based on facts. Nope, that’s all you get! Don’t want to spoil the surprise. 😀
One goal I am putting on my list for this weekend: ROAD TRIP TO CENTRALIA, PA! My boyfriend went last weekend with friends and did some dirt bike riding. I am going to drive up and hoof it to the creepy broken road with the steam billowing out and take lots of abstract pictures.
Kind of like this one:
Ok..So it isn’t exactly abstract. But I know I can do better than this one here. I love creepy places… more so I love creepy places with creepy back stories. I was up here (Centralia) a couple of years ago. The fact that at one time this place used to bustle with life is amazing. Now I think less than twenty homes remain. Sad, really. The government decided it would be cheaper to make almost everyone leave rather than try to get rid of the fire that burns underneath.
Gotta love the government!
Goals for this week:
* Go to Centralia
* Write 1,000 words on WIP.
Happy ROWING! 😀
By the way… if you did not know… a creepy movie actually based on a video game confused with being based on Centralia is Silent Hill. There is definitely some serious fiction thrown in there. But that’s ok! ;D Also, if you are interested in reading more gobs of goodies on Centralia check out The Smoldering Ruins of Centralia.
