Whitewood Horror

Grain elevator

I managed to find time to upload some photos on my website. Take a look at the gallery and you’ll see a couple of photos of Whitewood, Saskatchewan. These were taken a few years ago but if you want to define Small Town, just use Whitewood as an example. You’ll note that the main street photo was devoid of traffic and people. This picture was not taken at rush hour, but it was during the middle of the day. To say it is quiet here might be the understatement of the year.

Like many small towns it does have an interesting past and actually was a bustling town back in the days of taming the Wild West.  It was founded in 1892 and seems to have been home to fur trading, French culture and the pioneer versions of 7-11 stores.

The reason I’m talking about Whitewood is that I’m going to a family reunion there. (My wife’s sister lives there and it seems she thinks everyone will want to journey a thousand miles to visit grasshoppers. She has a kind heart but I think Las Vegas would be a better place to get together.) So with Whitewood on my mind I became inspired to use it for a story. A horror story as a matter of fact.

Now I don’t want to ruin the tourist industry of Whitewood, so I’ll likely change the name to something a bit more ominous. Maybe Blackwood or Deadlywood. However I like the idea of a small town where everyone thinks they know everyone. But do they? (Add sinister laugh)

I’m not sure if I’ll have a serial killer or come up some evil creature, like a vampire.  But my mind is coming up with different ideas how to use the deserted streets of Whitewood. Let’s face it; if the streets are empty during the day, can you guess what they’ll be like at the middle of the night under a pale moonlight?  

Main street

A frightened woman running down the sidewalk, gasping for air as she pounds on locked doors of the businesses. Her attacker gains on her but at the last moment the headlights of pickup truck illuminate them as it roars down the street. She calls out to the driver…

I guess I’ll have to do some editing on that but I think Whitewood is a great location for a horror story. Who knows, it may become famous for something other than grasshoppers.
