I can't believe after all the typing I've been doing this month that I still have 19,000 words to find in the next nine days. Scary stuff.
However, as I hadn't blogged at all this week, I thought I'd quickly tell you about an excellent talk I went to yesterday with Rob at the Jersey Archives. It was given by Ian Ronayne, author of the book, 'Ours' about a small group of Jerseyman who left the island to fight in the First World War. You can buy the book here.
As soon as I've crawled to the end of NaNoWriMo on 30th November, I'll grab the book from Rob and read it properly myself as it's full of fascinating information and photos. In fact, sitting in front of us was an elderly lady who's father's photo is included in the book. It was history coming alive and I'm so glad I dragged myself away from my computer long enough to attend.
