Forgot to post on the 28th! Instead of thinking about the writing process and composing a post I was in the basement controlling the water running like an open faucet, (still am in full combat against the running water, brooming it into the u drain, trying to stay ahead of it), calling the plumber and mason, the tree company for the tree over the driveway and checking out the other storm tossed debris which abounds. At least we are lucky to have power, having lost it only for 20 hours. There are still people in town here with no electricity and therefore no water, and roads still closed and flooding in some places.
But as I push water and clean up from Irene I know that here is a new story here somewhere. Of course, the classic book on experiencing a hurricane for children is the wonderful and honored TIME OF WONDER set on an island in Maine when some weather was acoming!
When I finally finish the cleanup I will sit down and start writing a storm story!What are some of your hurricane experiences and what do you think you might use in your writing from this experience?
