Amanda Betts: The Muffin Principle, or, ‘How to embrace the randomness of everyday life in your writing’

Session Info:

A common question put to authors is ‘Where do your ideas come from?’ AJ’s ideas come from many places: found shopping lists, newspaper articles, and overheard conversations. Occasionally, she’s even inspired by breakfast…

In this presentation, AJ shares the surprising evolution of her second novel, Wavelength, and how it developed from an interest in a particular food, to a novel with themes including the pressures of Year Twelve, passion, and the infinite possibilities of life. By hearing AJ’s approach to Wavelength, students learn strategies of teasing stories out of everyday material.
