As you may know I won the Waterstones’ terrifyingly short story competition and one of the prizes was a visit from an author to come to your school. Now this author happened to be Dave Shelton. I had such a great time and so did my year. We went to groups of 5s and 4s and wrote terrifyingly short stories! I think the boys in my year especially enjoyed this visit because a lot of them are into ghost stories and horror stories, as boys my age tend to be. It was nice to see boys keen to try and read Dave Shelton’s story. I don’t think I’ve ever seen boys so keen to read and write. The teachers were happy with me because I won this competition. My whole year had good time and wrote what I think were some terrifyingly short stories!
