School Visits!

So I’ve got my first school visit all lined up for next Tuesday. I’m a little excited and a lot terrified nervous! I’ll be speaking to several 7th & 8th grade English classes about writing in the morning and reading to the 3rd Grade in the afternoon.  I have no idea what I’m going to talk about. I’m thinking of going through the process of writing a story – coming up with the idea, working up the plot, and developing characters.  I also might talk about story arc and how all those elements fit in.  I will probably also explain my journey from writing as a kid up to self-pubbing.  I’m really hoping this goes well.  I haven’t done anything like this before, so I’m flying by the seat of my pants.  I want to be informative and entertaining, but I certainly don’t want to bore them.

If you’re a writer, tell me in the comments about your first speaking experience.  Were you nervous?  How did it go?  What subjects did you cover?  If you’re a reader, tell me what you’d like your favorite author to talk about?

I look forward to any and all suggestions!
