Published authors do school visits, right? And even published authors find school visits a bit scary, I hear.
What if you’re not published yet?
What if you’re going to do a school visit to the same class every week?
The deal is, I’m struggling with putting together the crime novel for kids I started thinking about some time ago, so I needed a bit of pressure. Every Friday afternoon, I’m going to read a couple of chapters to two classes at my local primary school. By the week after, I need to have written the next chapters or it will feel like a VERY long afternoon.
Really, it did seem like quite a good idea at the time. They get an insight into the writing process and I get a chance to test my text on its target audience. Win-Win, surely? I’m about to find out…
