828 words on the nameless crossroads story today, just kind of poking at it randomly and whittering. I need to look up some more really spectacular ecological disasters triggered by human incompetence. So far I have Bhopal, Chernobyl, and the Cuyahoga River Fire.

I can see it's going to be one of those ones that gets written in dribs and drabs.

I'm disenchanted. I'm going to finish that Ken Wharton book I started last year sometime today. Then tonight, field trip to GAMA with the boy, and perhaps dinner at the Irish pub. I could eat.

No significant exercise yesterday. Plans for a walk today, possibly weights. I'm so very dull. *g*

Thanks to everybody who said congrats on finishing the rewrite. I appreciate it!


I was so going to say that!
If only I had an ocean to work with--

--sadly, I need things that could be a hazard to a land-based courier....
I'm impressed you can write anything at all the day after finishing a revision!
I may write nothing at all tomorrow. *g* I feel a good long post-novel slump coming on.
And on a totally unrelated note--yay, Irish pub! *g*
I love that icon. Yay steak and mushroom pie!
Three Mile Island (march 28, 1979)
Do famines count? The Bengal man-made Famine of 194344, subject of a film by Satyajit Ray, Distant Thunder (1973): 'As the British government cornered the civilian food supply for its armies, the people starved.'
Alas, they don't.

They have to fit very specific parameters, which I am not at liberty to discuss here *g*.

Which means book time for me, I fear, and I don't think anyone else can be of much help.
Forest fire? Grassland fire? Genetic engineering and?

I thought of something I heard about at the AAG last year, but it's much more subtle and long-term than I guess you're looking for.

But it's now simmering on the back burner of my brain 'cause I'm sure there's a story in it somewhere. Dammitall ... I've got to revise my AAG presentation that I'm giving on Friday ... no time for this!!
Johnstown flood?

Boston molasses flood?

Love Canal is probably too slow, I'd expect.
Hurm. The James-Watt era forest fires might do it....
For that matter, wasn't there a dam break near LA some time ago? And one on the east side of the country involving coal slurries? I also vague recall a big landslide in England? that buried most of a town including a school. I think that was caused by some sort of waste pileup at a higher elevation breaking down.
Underground coal fires in PA.... landfill slides in South America....
Buried landfill fire!!
Love Canal
