A few of Katie and Kevin’s writing tips:
Find inspiration for your writing at the park or the library or at home by noticing things.
Use a big sheet of paper to write down your thoughts about the characters in your  story, who are their friends?, what type of family do they have?
We spend alot of time thinking about what is going to happen before we start writing.
An example of how we come up with a new story is you could come up with a list of fears and then combine a few together, they may or may not go together like an amusement park on the moon.
Who is your character, what is their goal, where is your story set. There are no bad ideas but do try and make it make sense in the world it is set. Good Luck!
