7.45am on a brisk Launceston morning saw almost forty eager students, ranging from Years 7 to 12, invade the LCGS Learning Hub, ready to embark on their Write a Book in a Day journey. Under the direction of co-ordinator Mr Doug Grubert, the four teams received their instructions and challenge information, before splitting up into their groups to brainstorm for the day ahead.
Time seemed to vanish as ideas flew wildly, with each team taking the stimulus material and forming the fledgling outline of their books. Once the structure had been formed, the teams split up to start writing their chapters and working on their illustrations. The words and pictures are pouring onto the page, and the stories are shaping up. Stay tuned for details on how the second half of the challenge came together, and a look at the finished books!
