One of the best things about writing stories is that you can go anywhere in your imagination – even during lockdown. You might not be able to go on holiday yet, but you can have an adventure without even leaving your house. All you need is a pen and paper. Here’s an idea. Imagine you’re on an Easter Egg hunt. You’re scrambling through the bushes looking for that brightly wrapped chocolate egg when suddenly . . . What do you think could happen next? You might fall into another world. You might find a message that takes you on a strange journey. You might find a treasure map. What problems are you going to face? Remember that all good stories have problems to overcome. You might find you are very small in this new world. Your strange journey could take you into space or the centre of the earth. Someone else may want your treasure map and they will stop at nothing to get it.

How are you going to overcome these problems and get back to the Easter Egg hunt before your friends have snaffled all the eggs!?

So get writing. And have a great Easter holiday!
