I don’t normally use this blog to post outside of the book/words/writing related subject matter, but this is something different. Australia is currently experiencing its worst ever natural disaster with terrible bushfires raging throughout the southern state of Victoria. Over 130 people are already confirmed dead, a figure that could double yet, and more than 750 homes have been destroyed.

People are really suffering with this one, so if you can spare a bit of cash to help these poor bastards rebuild their lives, drop a donation at the Red Cross appeal. Details here.
