Just did my first author visit in Illinois today! It was a lot of fun! The students were asking lots of good questions like: Where do you get ideas for stories? How do you publish a book? What do you do when you don’t know where to take your story next?
Their teacher shared some of their writing projects with me, which were really well done! Their next planned project is to write a chapter book, so I got to share some advice on how to create enough content to fill a chapter book, as well as general advice on editing and revising.
All in all, it was a very fun visit! I couldn’t think of a better way to end the week.
