In my Creative Writing Class this week I was assigned to write a Short Story (5-6 pages) with a strong setting. I had two ideas but one was more developed than the other so I decided to proceed with my story about the first day of the Blitz.
For those not familiar with WWII history the Blitzkrieg, also known as the Blitz, plagued London from 7 September 1940 – 11 May 1941.
It was an air attack conducted by the Germans on English soil, assaulting Londoners with a series of bombings. You can read all about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Blitz.
I wrote my story from the perspective of a young girl out to meet a friend on the first day of the bombing. After final revisions of the short story are done I will post it.
Bye for now!
