Having survived an earthquake here in East Kent earlier this year, last night I was fortunate enough to enjoy one of the biggest electrical storms we’ve ever seen in these parts. Two inches of rain fell on us in a matter of hours and the road outside my house was like a river. In Sandwich, the cattle market and Moat Sole were under water. We lost our electricity supply early in the evening, and it didn’t come back on until this afternoon. Despite that (or maybe because of it) I managed to get a lot of work done today (no email or other distractions!) and I finished the rewrite of my novel The Belfast Boy. All I have to do now is transfer my manuscript notes onto my PC!
