On Saturday morning I am supposed to give a talk on writing fiction at the Muharraq Secondary School for Girls. This will be my very first such talk. I’ve never stood in front of a group of teenage students and addressed them before!!! This is gonna be fun.
The ‘talk’ will mainly focus on my background, work experience and writing career and shed light on the elements of writing and suchlike. I will also be reading a short story or two throughout the event.
I’m actually looking forward to it. With some luck, I won’t screw it up.
