We Had Everything But Money

We Had Everything But Money by Deb Mulvey

Personal anecdotes of the Great Depression in the United States. Includes people who lost their life savings, their jobs, their homes. . . though generally from the children's point of view, who were shielded from the full extent by their parents. Food, clothes, transportation, etc. Down to children who warned that Santa Claus was bringing more to the extremely needy and so couldn't bring them as much.

  • not quite normal NaNoWriMo

    So I have concluded my NaNoWri adventure. Both stories are complete for a total of 35,154 words. One small whoot.

  • NaNoWriMo news

    The first novella's first draft is done. At 21,400 words. Hmm. I see a small problem if the second one turns out the same, even not taking the time…

  • NaNoWriMo

    Going sluggishly. Did write something every day, so there is hope in sight.
