My First School Visit

So this week I experienced my first school visit.  The morning was spent talking to 7th and 8th graders.  We discussed the story writing process and all the elements that go into making a story, including plot and characters.  We also talked about the story arc and how it is universal to writing, film, and television, and I told them about my journey as a writer.  I got lots of good questions and met some really great kids.

In the afternoon, I read part of The Movie House Mystery to the 3rd grade students.  We all had a blast!  The kids really enjoyed the story and wanted more.  I loved answering all their questions and could have talked to them for another hour or two.  I really feel like we connected and that I found my true audience.  When it was over, I got hugs from a couple of students as they were leaving.  That was the best feeling in the world!

Hopefully I will be able to visit again when the first three Brock Ford books are released in December.  I look forward to meeting more young fans!
