So, anyway, here's the latest excitement from my bass-ackwards corner of the world...
Last week, there was a train accident. The morning passenger train out of Nebraska derailed just this side of the border. Nine people were injured - no fatalities. Considering what could've happened, I'm happy to know that last part.
The biggest news around here this time of year is which steer took the blue ribbon at the fair, whether it was the biggest money earner at the auction, and who'll be making burgers out of it come fall.
Is it any wonder I spend most of my time inside my head, making up exciting things for other people to experience?
Seriously, though, living out in the backside of BFE isn't all bad. Sure, it's boring, but it does give me a mostly distraction-free life. And after spending most of my life near one major city or another, it's nice to not have to worry about traffic, the murder rate, long lines... There are certainly worse places to live.
What about you? What excitement is going on where you live right now? Do you live for excitement or could you exist happily in Boredom, USA? And lastly - perhaps most importantly - do you think a writer has to live in the center of excitement to write about it, or can a gal fake her way through?
