Writing Club, Day 1

Now that was exciting! Earlier this week we had our first ever meeting of the new Writing Club. A dozen budding writers from 1st and 2nd class gathered for an hour of writing fun and games that even involved drawing, racing, stolen horses, drowning cats, sad rabbits and much more!
We used our own lives for inspiration as well as some intriguing pictures from some great books.

Some things we talked about:
  • there is no right or wrong when you write your own story: you decide what is working for you, as long as it makes sense!
  • don't kill your hero in the first page: otherwise it's going to be a very short story! (Unless you're writing a ghost or a zombie story, of course :) )
  • the more questions you ask, the more answers you make up, the more your story grows;

  • one picture can spark many different stories;
  • farts. Yes, we talked about having farts in your stories. Is it ok or not? We decided that we were allowed one per story. So be sure to make it a good one!

With all of this in mind, we were ready for our next adventure...
