Deborah Abela: Online Session: Writers Are Troublemakers

Session Info:

Ever since Deborah was seven, she’s been good at making trouble, so it was obvious she would grow up to be a writer. Find out how being a troublemaker led her to write over 26 books and how you can use troublemaking to create your own fantastic stories. And have lots of fun along the way!

You will explore the writing process from developing ideas, to planning outlines and, most importantly, creating characters and plots readers will love.

Topics covered

Session can include any of the following, depending on teacher preference:

  • The three main ingredients for writing stories
  • Making trouble for your characters
  • Developing ideas
  • Planning exciting plots
  • Creating engaging characters
  • Using the 5 senses to create convincing settings
  • Having fun with editing – yes, fun!

Delivery platform

Zoom is my preferred delivery method, but I can use Skype. I’m also happy to explore Google hangouts or Microsoft Teams if the school prefers.
