Ailsa Wild: Squishy Taylor’s Modern Family

Session Info:

Squishy Taylor lives with her dad, two bonus-sisters (step sisters), her bonus-mum and her half-brother. Her Mum lives on the other side of the world. Not your average modern family. Or is it, these days?

Squishy Taylor shares her mystery-solving escapades with her Bonus Sisters. What is your family like? Could they be in a story? Or will you make up a pretend family? What kind of adventures might they have? Join me for a fun writing workshop where families inspire character creation.

Topics covered

  • My own family and how they have inspired elements of the Squishy Taylor story
  • Characters in Squishy Taylor and why they are important for different reasons
  • Character development- how to create characters who will help you generate a plot
  • Planning a story
