Had a great day today at Bourne Grammar School in, erm, Bourne. I was especially excited as I'm a big fan of The Bourne Identity. I know that's a bit stupid, because the movie has nothing to do with the place, but there you go.
Anyway, I spent most of the day with Year 9, who had some great ideas for novels of their own. It was a real pleasure to hear some of them and for us to work on them together. It was a shame there wasn't enough time to look at some more.
We covered Zombies, Gangsters, Post-suicide Narrators, Black Gloves Left in Empty Safes, Twists, MacGuffins, Climaxes and Kicks up the Bum.
A good day.
