I’m Doing it – NaNoWriMo


Participant-2014-Web-Banner (1)

I’m doing it! I’m going to attempt NaNoWriMo again for the like the 4th, maybe 5th time. I was always working before, so it really was hard. Last year, I was still in a daze, but this year, I can’t help but wonder if this is destined to happen 😉

It’s really fun, this National Novel Writing Month annual event that started in 1999. So, even though I have some really interesting things on my agenda to share with you, I may be a bit MIA even more than normal this next month – yeah I know, you never know what to expect from me . . . sorry — though I kind of like it LOL 😉 (Like today for example, you get to hear from me two or maybe even three times – that’s a record!!)

If you want to join me in this journey to attempt 50,000 words in 30 days, the links are provided above. Notice, I did say attempt – though I am going to work it hard this year!! Maybe this is the something I felt coming, hell who knows 😉

Wish me luck!!eyes

 

Just something I was thinking about . . . that novel burning up inside me 🙂

Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 and The Blacklist


Like many of us, I have been wondering when and if they are going to find Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370. I am praying for the families of the 239 souls onboard. I know the general information that has been released. The flight left Kuala Lumpur the night of Mar. 8, then disappeared en route to Beijing. While the backgrounds of the seasoned pilot and experienced co-pilot are under investigation, so far nothing out of the ordinary has been discovered. The FBI has now taken possession of the pilot’s homemade flight simulator to retrieve and analyze some deleted computer files.

Besides the FBI, the NTSB and FAA are involved, as well as 26 countries who are assisting in the search for the plane. As more information is obtained, the search area is redefined. There’s been talk about an island in the Indian Ocean, Diego Garcia, a British territory where the plane may have landed or crashed. It was reported that we have a military presence there in the form of a U.S. Navy support facility, so it seems doubtful they wouldn’t be aware if something had happened near there. I read two-thirds of the passengers were from China, not sure about the rest.

I am a huge follower of NBC’s The Blacklist, meaning I never miss an episode. In one of the early episodes, Raymond Reddington, the main character in this show played by James Spader, tells the special U.S. government agency he is working with that many accidents or catastrophes that have occurred were to cover up other things – things that were not considered when investigating these events, things not on anyone’s radar.

Who were the passengers on the plane? Who and what were they involved with, as well as their families? What were their occupations? What type of influence did they have on upcoming events like elections, law, policy or decision making; money changing hands; financial, political, humanitarian, scientific, or technological deals in progress or under consideration? Who are the people who own or are in charge of the airline and their families? What’s been going on with the Malaysian airline and its competitors lately? What’s been going on in the country politically and economically? There are so many different questions that could be asked, depending on which perspective you look at it from. Maybe this wasn’t an act of terrorism or a suicide mission, maybe this is something else. Maybe I watch too much television.

I don’t know – just something I was thinking about . . .
