Fantastic effort from volunteers all over Queensland and Victoria helping out on the clean up. Need to stay with it though, because it’s going to take weeks. I’m going to work out a routine of helping and working, because I still have a February deadline for Angel Arias. So far have only been able to help out with the Redlands Council effort.
Was planning to go to one of the mustering points tomorrow but think I’ll go out to Goodna instead. I did an author visit to a primary school out there once and would very much like to help them.
There are some great writing-related fundraisers going on: Writers on Rafts and one being put together by Fleur MacDonald and Kate Gordon.
And on a happier note (for me at least), many thanks to Garth Pendergrast for sending this awesome picture from Borders in Perth.
