What has happened over the last week is so unspeakably dreadful that it's been hard, I'm sure, for everyone to continue with their normal work. Today's writing exercise is to write a prayer - it doesn't have to be to a god - for healing. Let's all do it. If you don't want to write poetry write it as a prose piece but thinking of repetition, rhythm and other techniques which allow your piece to work as spoken word.
All thoughts to those who have lost people in the bushfires.
