A huge thank you to Karen Hubbard and all the lovely staff and students at Shatin Junior School, for hosting me at their Book Week this week! I spent three full, funny and fabulous days with the kids doing a host of story readings and workshops! Everyone from Year One to Year Six met my latest character in The Chinese Calendar Tales – that cocky but loveable Rickshaw Rooster- in a fun story reading full of fascinating historical facts and cockadoodledoos! Then I spent two inspiring days with the Year 5s (who learned How to Become A Great Writer) and the Year 4s (who learned How to Write a Riveting Story)! Five things to remember, for ALL you kids who want to write fabulous stories:

  1. Free up your leisure time!
  2. Radically reduce the time you spend on digital games and devices!
  3. Radically increase the time you spend reading great books!
  4. Plan your stories before you write them!
  5. Enter my latest Clever Competition right away!

And you’ll be well on the way to becoming truly GREAT writers!
