Research: Subterranean shelter

Hi everyone, I'm still burried into my preparation for NaNoWriMo but yesterday I took a little break to do something I've wanted to do for years: visiting a subterranean shelter from World War 2. It's still linked with my novel, as scenes of it will happen in a similar location. Research was therefore a good [...]

Update from Camp NaNo – 3928 words!
