On Oct, 19, Alpha students were treated to a lively, funny, and writing-focussed presentation by Richard Scrimger, author of Ink Me, Zomboy, and many other books. “Start with a feeling,” he suggested, like fear or anger or sadness, then “grab that feeling and use it in your story.” Revenge writing can be “excellent”, he said, adding that it can be a good motivator for a character.
Richard taught us all a lot about story-writing, using examples from his books. AND he made us laugh in the process. An “amazing” presentation!
