Red Dawn Dust Storm
As a writer, the forces of nature are often a powerful tool. Fires, floods, storms, volcanoes—all these things can be used to great effect in order to up the stakes and build tension.
Today, Sydney woke up to what looked like the end of the world! From about 5:30am an eerie red glow consumed the city as a monster dust storm blew in from the west. Apparently it's going to stay this way all day - it's very surreal. I think I'll be writing a dust storm into one of my books!
