You Can Help

Hi everyone.

Those of you who read my last post know that I'm particularly affected by the floods in S.E. Queensland. Many of my family and friends live in the disaster zone.

Last night, the C.B.C (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) posted up a link where individuals can donate to the flood relief efforts:

My flatmate (thanks so much J.M.-B.) took it down for me and brought it to my attention. I was either at training or in bed when the link was posted up. If you feel compelled to help, click the link and donate.

You all rock!

Writing went well yesterday. I made 3 000 words (yay), and walking to work today many ideas popped into my head. I should make a start on my 3 000 words today.

Oh, before I forget, today's Forgotten English word of the day:

Extracts; 'padding': as distinguished from original work.
- John Farmer's Slang and Its Analogues, 1903

Did you understand that definition? I didn't. I imagine it was what today's 'cut-and-paste' is.

Right, that's all for now. Have a wonderful Tuesday.
