Hi guys! Bookexplorer125 here and I’m here to introduce you to… Darthdice! he will be blogging with me today and posting other blog posts as well. We are here to talk about the Writers festival, as we said we would last week! We have also posted pictures for you to see. We started off by walking to a bus stop by the S.P.C.A. Then we had to catch a bus but the first got filled up by us so we had to take two buses! It wasn’t much trouble getting us there but once we got there it started raining. Then we went shopping at the market and playing at the playground and ate our lunch. Then after about two hours it was time to get our tickets and find our seats. After a bit of time, everybody was in and the talk started. It was with three authors, Kenneth Oppel,(Author of Half Brother) Richard Scrimger and Arthur Slade and was overall very entertaining and inspiring. They talked about the books they had written and how they had become writers. Then we got previews of their latest books and got to ask questions about them and their books. It was a talk that helped us focus on how we write and it made us reconsider the experience of being a writer. There were a lot of interesting things but one of the things that stuck out for us was that you can be any age to write a book, even while you’re young. Anything is possible, even when you’re a kid! After that we caught a bus and went back to school. it was a very fun day overall and we all enjoyed it.
