I visited Norden High School in Rishton this morning to give a talk to about 100 children about reading, writing and my own books. ¬†I set a short story competition and will be returning there in October with the results. ¬†Was good fun, and a lot of great ideas came out from the students. ¬†It was great the way everyone got involved and took part in the workshop. ¬†I’m looking forward to reading all those stories now!!!

Tomorrow I’ll be visiting a high school in Blackburn to give a talk and set another short story competition. ¬†There’ll be over 100 children, so that means I’ll be judging between over 100 stories this time – I’m considering reducing the word limit a little!

Happy St. George’s day England, and to the rest of the world – Happy World Book Day! ¬†My project is counting in HOURS now – it says 71 hours to go!! ¬†Here’s the link again:¬†http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1144737732/peter-black-and-the-craven-lake-mystery
