Yesterday we were lucky to be invited to the Mosgiel Library to have a session with local author Ella West. Ella received a prize last week at the New Zealand Book Awards for her book "Night Vision".
We got to hear a little about Ella and the processes she goes through as an author. Then she lead us through an activity to help us create characters and plan a story. The most important point she made was to think big and exaggerate our ideas to help us write great stories.
