Chapter Book Challenge – First weekend

It’s been an amazing start to the 2014 Chapter Book Challenge.

Yesterday, we had the Chapter Book Writing Workshop at the Monash Library in Oakleigh. We had 20 participants for a full day workshop with Sherryl Clark, Michael Wagner and Julie Grasso.

All three speakers shared some fantastic tips about writing chapter books, from plotting to characters to creating villains. They were all generous with their tips and support for new writers and I have some new books to read that have been signed to my boys (but I think I’ll read them first).

If you want to get some of the things we learned, check out my Twitter profile and that of Eileen Louden and find the #ChaBooCha hashtag. Scroll down to find the tweets from yesterday, we were both tweeting during the workshop.

I didn’t get any writing done yesterday, but I made up for it today.

After picking up my parents from the airport, I took full advantage of a child-free afternoon and wrote the first two chapters of my book for this years challenge. It is a first draft and I know it needs work, but it’s started, after all, that’s the whole point of the challenge – just get the draft done.

This years challenge is off to a great start. I’m looking forward to reading the posts on the Chapter Book Challenge blog as well as hearing the progress of the other participants.
