Achievement



It really pays some time to go to a writing workshop. In 2017, author Tristan Bancks ran ‘Go Nuts!” This is what he instructed his students: “Get yourself a notepad. Write the words 'I remember' at the top of the first page. Set a timer for five or ten minutes. Press start and write down everything you remember happening in your life. Big things, little things, sad things. Write for the whole time without stopping:.

Pat Simmons, a Buzz Worder who attended the workshop and did the above exercise, re-worked it, and submitted it as a picture book. Lo and behold, the manuscript has been accepted for publication and will appear in 2021. Well done, Pat!
