SCHOOL VISITS & SUNSHINE!
Here we go again! It's almost the new term, with school visits starting again, and calls and emails starting to arrive.
Today I'm checking and packing my "talk bags", because tomorrow morning I'm off to talk to all the staff of a primary school about "my life as a writer". It's an interesting beginning to two days of INSET on Writing Development, and I almost wish I could be with them the rest of the time. On the other hand, I do have other things to do - like writing . . !
I'm not sure if it's better to have the sky bucketing down rain, so people don't mind so much about starting school again, or brightly sunny, so that everyone can't help but feel slightly happy.
By the way, if you are interested in writing, check out an excellent blog: AN AWFULLY BIG BLOG ADVENTURE.
It has new entries most days, written by children's & teen/YA authors, but it's not childish!
