Now the Authors have had time to read some of the books we took out of the library, they are beginning the process of magpie-ing good ideas for characters, settings and vocabulary that really fits with the genre of book they are planning to write.

What ideas have you decided to borrow and adapt Authors and why?


Library visit

Today the Awesome Authors visited Worksop Library for inspiration! They thought about what genre of books they like to read and spent a long while reading blurbs, looking at front covers and choosing some books to sample. When they had a huge pile each, they found a quiet corner to sit and read the introduction or first chapter to narrow down the choice to take home. These books will provide lots of content, structure and vocabulary for their own writing. What are you reading and what do you think to it so far Authors?
