Diary of an ebook 6 – the goal post in sight

Where I am at: I have 3 copies of my book well drafts really, none of them really come up to scratch My latest publisher is on hold because I have stopped payment due to unsatisfactory progress. This week we were hit by ex Tropical cyclone Oswald, which had nothing ex about it. It affected the whole east coast of Australia from Cairns to south of Sydney, bringing exceptional rainfall and winds. In my case about half way down the Coast, at nearby Springbrook there was over 500 mm, that’s over 1/2 a metre, not in a whole year but in a few days. We had 350 mm and it washed away a whole road and threw landslides over the same road in another place.

My daughter lives in the middle of those 2 road closures. We had no electricity for 5 1/2 days, no phone, no access, all roads were closed by bridge washaways or roads flooded. My daughter and grandson had to walk out over a huge pile of rubble and get a lift to get food supplies. The shops had no frozen food, it all had to be thrown out because the electricity was out. We have pump water and the pumps were out because of no electricity. We had to bucket water into the toilets and siphon water out of the tanks.

If anyone doubts that the earth changes are upon us they should look and listen here. What I know is there is more to come. What I’ve learnt is have an old fashioned plug-in phone available as well as a mobile which can’t be recharged. In the end I remembered the battery in the computer and rang my daughter on Skype. She only 10 mins away by car but of course, no access, no phone meant I couldn’t even get a message to her. Communication is my number 1 point.

The food in the fridge gradually goes off, so you need emergency gas supplies to cook anything salvageable. You also need emergency food in tins, which I had. All this is useless if you get a flood which sweeps everything away.

Emergency services were totally overwhelmed, they did what they could but those who did not take responsibility for themselves suffered.

My downstairs flooded and the occupant moved out. I now face the repairs, the clean-up, the insurance assessors, Disaster Recovery Response Applications. I went to the Recovery Centre to apply for a grant and there were hundreds of people waiting and I was told it would be a 5 hour wait.

I thought I was prepared because I knew about the earth changes, how naive I was. All is grist for the mill of a writer, write about it, the internet provides the outlet, use it.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
