On Thursday 30th January, everyone was very excited to welcome Lisa Thompson into our school - we weren't disappointed. We were treated to amusing (very funny) stories from Lisa's formative years and given some insight into how she comes up with her story ideas. We all came away inspired to imagine more, read more and write more. Thank you Lisa for making it a great event and thank you Chorleywood Bookshop for helping organise it.
UPDATE 5th Feb - 6Newton had thought of a lot of good questions that we didn't get the time to ask so we emailed Lisa who very kindly responded.
Thank you for your email. I had a lovely time at Prestwood Junior School and I'm so pleased my visit has inspired you all to do some creative writing. That's brilliant! I'm very happy to answer your questions! Here you are:-
I think there is a bit of me in all of my main characters! There isn't really any one character that I'm more like.
I would say Melody Bird from The Goldfish Boy. I love her!
Ooh, that's an interesting question. I don't think I could bear to rewrite any of them! I went over and over them all so many times. I guess if I had to choose it would probably be The Goldfish Boy and I would put more of Melody Bird in the story.
They always come to me about half way through writing the book. I'm writing a book at the moment and I have no idea what the title might be yet!
Thank you for your questions and keep writing and reading!
