(revised) It Was A Dark And Stormy....Blogfest Contest Entry


Name: Sharon K Mayhew
Title: Everyone Did Their Part
Genre: HF PB

ORIGINAL VERSION
I knew everyone was expected to do their part for the war effort, even here in Leek. 

NEW AND HOPEFULLY IMPROVED VERSION (That I entered...)
It was World War Two and everyone was expected to do their part for the war effort, even Mummy and me.

So this is my entry....Any suggestions?  I have today and tomorrow to make any changes before I enter it in Brenda and Weronika's contest....

Here is  the whole first paragraph just in case you'd like to read it...


I knew everyone was expected to do their part for the war effort, even here in Leek.  Daddy was fighting in France.  Grandfather joined the Home Guard and patrolled the beaches along the English Channel.  Grandmother worked at Stannards Mill on Buxton Road, sewing parachutes for the soldiers.  Mummy and I wanted to do our part too.  Mummy said we could host one evacuee.

Thanks for your help and have a great week!
