Chapter Book Challenge – Week 1. #ChaBooCha

Week 1 – ChaBooCha

It’s the end of the first week of the Chapter Book Challenge 2014. How have I gone? Pretty well.

Last weekend we had an amazing time at the Chapter Book Writing Workshop. I have pages of notes to implement in my own writing, and I’m still blown away by the generosity of all the presenters.

The Chapter Book Challenge blog has had a couple of great articles. I found the post about outlining your story particularly useful as it fits more with what I actually do than a lot of other articles I’ve seen. The first prize for 2014 has also been awarded. I didn’t win, but I know there are other prizes on offer…

On the writing side, I have written at least four full chapters of my chapter book, a few others are written in part form and need expanding. Mr N has been wonderful with his feedback, correcting many details to do with Australian Rules Football, and adding ideas on how to improve the story. The story is now taking a different direction than I originally planned, however it’s a much better message in the story, and I think the story will be stronger for it.

I’m really happy with my progress so far. The story is coming along and, in spite of having a cold at the end of the week, I’m still on track for the challenge so far.

Bring on week 2!

PS, if you’re in Melbourne, we’re planning a celebratory coffee at the end, and maybe something in the middle too…
