Writers Living in Japan Tweet About New Earthquake

This morning a 7.1 magnitude earthquake shook Japan once again, triggering tsunami alerts. We followed the quake through the Twitter feeds of writers living in Japan.

Author Jake Adelstein wrote: “‘I may have been shaken but I am not stirred. I will be the dry martini in a time of crisis.’ My Earthquake mantra.” Pamela wrote: “Trying for some shut-eye. May the rest of your night be non-earthshaking.”

Yesterday artist and blogger  posted a painted tribute (embedded above) to the earthquake-hit Aomori prefecture. Follow this link to donate to Red Cross earthquake and tsunami relief in Japan.
