Whether it is writing a story from the perspective of a character from a video game, or being thoughtful about what games have to offer as positive experiences, there should be something for everyone here.
From before I could read I enjoyed having stories read to me. But once I started reading from a very early age there was no stopping me!
Food plays a daily part in all our lives, and almost all of us have strong opinions on which foods we love – and which we can’t stand!
Today we’re looking at the topic of food as a very relatable and tangible subject of inspiration for our writing.
Home is our sanctuary from the world, or at least it should be.
Surely one of the oldest instincts for humankind, seeking out a warm cosy shelter to have as our home base, to help us relax and for many of us, enjoy time with our family.
Whether we are travelling across country, or to far off lands filled with totally foreign sights, sounds and smells, these experiences play a powerful role in shaping who we are, and how we think about life.

Let’s get started…
Whether it’s a faithful pup, or a cute little kitty, our pets can become basically like family members.
And it’s especially true for children, so if you’re needing to get your students interested in what is going on, the topic of pets is likely to get their attention!
So let’s see how pets can inspire copious amount of writing, out of even the most reluctant writer.
We’ve going to use real examples from our own lives, and also harness our imaginations to conjure up the most fantastic pets that we can think of. We’ll also tackle some more difficult topics around opinions of right and wrong, and ethical dilemmas.
So without further ado, let’s dive in…

Naturally dreams can get pretty creative, so let’s see how they might inspire some creative thinking, and writing!
If anything can help get the neurons firing and have us wondering what the answers are to questions which we don’t normally ask, the topic of dreams can.
So without further ado, it’s into our writing about dreams and dreaming…
