ROW80 R2 - May 31, 2020

I'm not going to talk about my goals today. There is something more important than them to discuss.
It is 2020.
How are the police still killing unarmed individuals?
How can we call ourselves first world nations made of civilized persons when this is still happening?
The FBI draw up profiles on people who are likely to be terrorists, serial killers, etc. Why is there not a profile on racist a**holes who are likely to kill people for no reason?
We have so much technology available, yet there hasn't been enough focus on capturing so-called bad guys instead of killing them.
I see a lot of people lately doing challenges online. I've been doing the 10 Movies That Have Impacted Me one.
What if we do a 10 Times I Thought I Might Die While Doing Something Ordinary Like Buying Diapers challenge?
Here are mine:
1. When I was 5, a friend dared me to throw a rock over a car. I missed and hit the windshield. Then the man came at us. We ran. I hid. He was a spoiled lawyer's son. My dad inspe…

ROW80 R2 May 24, 2020 - Growing and Flowing

I've been pretty terrible at checking in for this round of ROW80. The past month or so, I didn't get much writing done, only fighting in my own head about my WIP. But sometimes one needs that in order to figure the story out.

My coffee table is plodding along. I have two finished crates (one that is currently drying), and two yet to start. My arms need a break from the sanding. It's worth noting that the wood used for these doesn't come completely smooth after sanding with multiple grits and that's a bit annoying. I need some more supplies to finish the remaining two.
What else have I been doing? I have a young garden started on my ledge that will eventually move to my balcony. I plan to get some squirrel deterrents before I put anything out there. 
I have 3 cherry tomato plants growing. Two are strong, the third is going really slow. To the point I'm wondering if it is even the same kind of tomatoes. The stalk looks like tomato, but why is it growing so much …

Hello Again

I've reached a curious point in my life. One where I feel like I know less than I ever have before. One where I've realized the best brother is Sam Winchester.
What have I been up to lately? Well, I've been continuing my goals for decluttering. Part of this has me building a coffee table out of crates. There are some things I need that don't have a home and I couldn't find what I want at IKEA. Also, given the current state of things, I didn't really want to go there anyway. Also, a friend had trouble with a desk order for her little one's birthday, so I'm not in a hurry to have anything to do with them right now. I have one crate of four completed. There is a lot of work ahead, but I feel motivated.
I've also been working on my current screenplay. I've found it helpful to go back to the planning stages and rework things as I made a major change to which character would be the main character and it is fundamentally changing the story. As it should,…
