As I've been reading over the past few days I've found myself forgetting that the characters in my book aren't on lockdown. I keep being surprised that they're free to leave the house and meet other people.
Last night we joined our neighbours in a round of applause for the NHS staff working tirelessly to keep us safe and well.
As 8PM approached the street was silent. We opened our door. A door opened across the road. Then another, and another. In the distance we could hear cheers and we started to clap. The sound grew. A chain reaction. There were fireworks in the distance.
This was a community joining together as a sign of solidarity.
