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!

I just decided today that when I visit the school in Colne tomorrow I will give some books to the library so that all the children will have a chance to read them. Having just bought a lot more children’s books from local charity shops for a few pounds in total (some really good ones too!), I’m reflecting on what a fantastic and inexpensive hobby reading can be.
