To tell the truth, I wasn't on Ilkley Moor, but in the town of Ilkley, though there were mists on the moor top as I arrived. Two sessions today. One was on writing SPOOKY STORIES.
I heard some excellent pieces from a busy and thoughtful group of young writers. Thank you!
The afternoon session was about my own writing and stories, especially about THE THIRD ELEPHANT.
Really nice audience - though I felt rather jealous of the two children who told me they had actually ridden on an elephant, which is one of my secret ambitions.
Tomorrow is my third Ilkley session, and that will be on WRITING FOR CHILDREN
, which I am sure will be fun as well. This time it's a workshop for adults, so rather different to my familiar school audiences. Hope they behave themselves!!!
