I really enjoyed day one of my Colonel Light Gardens PS talks and I look forward to tomorrow for day 2.

As usual I did my character creation part at the end with the kids. Here is what they came up with.
My first stop was Woodcroft Library. There we got Blobbles the Horse. Blobbles has squid arms, cows for legs and a cardboard box for a body. He lives in a giant shoe in the land of bubbles.
Next at Seaford Library we got Milo the cat. Milo also had squid arms, Parrot legs and a orange for a body. He lives in a giant peanut in Pig World.
Sean Williams, Amanda Blair and I did a panel talk on story creation. All three of us had to make up a story on the spot. My part was to also draw stuff from the story on a whiteboard. In the end we didn’t finish the whole story but I think the audience got a good example of the creative process.
It was a great day. I had fun, got to hang with other like minded people and drink wine. Big thanks goes out to all the people that worked super hard to organise the event. People don’t realise how much work goes into putting on one of these events.
