We have been lucky enough to be awarded a small grant from Create NSW for a book we have loosely called ‘Outback Laughs’ as a working title but it will likely change. We want to try a new genre YA humour.
These little bits and bobs make a huge difference to help us find time to collaborate and write. They mean that one or both of us has been able to take a term off here and there from our school jobs to write. This Create NSW award will allow us to do the same. So we are super excited to get started on this book.
First we both sit down to discuss our big ideas for the book. We write down every idea- silly or not.
Then we put lines to connect ideas, cross out ideas, write new ones in.
Then we can start to see the story and we start pulling ideas out of our brainstorm and put them in a loose story overview.
It’s a fun process because there are no wrong answers.
We look forward to sharing more of this writing process with you in the future.
Thanks for reading.
