Framwellgate meets the Lothian Dragons

Hi there everyone in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6.

It was great meeting you all this week. You took part really well and we all had an excellent time discussing story telling.

I thought your school was a great place to spend the day. Will you find room for me and some of the dragons??

Your ideas were totally brilliant and they inspired me with some more ideas for stories. So thank you.

If one of your teachers sends me a photo or two, I will put them up here so that everyone can see what a good time we had. Watch this space.

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy reading the dragon books you bought. If you took Scordril, you can find some of chapter 2 here, so that you can listen instead of reading. How’s that for lazy?!

Planning and plotting

One of us (Eleanor) is looking forward to meeting everyone at Framwellgate Moor Primary School this Wednesday. That’s the planning bit of the title.

Some of the dragons are coming with me and they say they are looking forward to hearing me read about themselves. I wonder – do dragons’ ears to go red when we talk about them?!

I’m also working on a new (very short) story about what happened to Threah when she was a youngling in the layr, just developing her love of herbal healing. What do you think she would have done if she’d met a little overgrounder whose mum was ill?

I think they’d have made friends – but would they have been able to save the mum? That’s where the plotting comes in. I shall go to bed and let my unconscious mind take over. We found that always helped when we were writing Farlkris and Scordril.
