A Writing Challenge
We listened to the Author, Elle Mcnicoll, discuss her motivation behind writing this book and how important she felt it was to have heroines in her stories that think and act in a different way to most people. She explained how there are lots of people like this all around us and it helps us to understand them and ensure we treat them with the respect they deserve. After all, none of us are the same! This half term, we would like you to get your imaginations going by writing your own story where the lead character faces challenges in how they think, speak or act. Elle Mcniccol talked about neurodivergence, where everybody’s brain works in a different way and this can affect the way they come across to other people. You might want to research neurodiversity a bit to get some more information. The important thing is that your main character should be incredibly unique and although they may be misunderstood, they are as normal as any of us, their brain just works in a different way. Think about all the positives that someone could have if they process information in a different way to others. What else should happen in your story… You decide! Please bring in your work for Tuesday 3rd November 2020.
