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.

Camp NanoWriMo starts tomorrow!

Camp NaNoWriMo is almost here! I am not ready, but I'm still impatient to get back into writing Healers. I am currently reading what I have written during NaNoWriMo 2016 and I'm surprised that it is not as bad as I remembered it. Of course, it is only a first draft, with lots of typos [...]
