I checked the mailbox today and was surprised to find, tucked in amongst the flyers advertising takeaway and the slimy trails left by your average garden variety snail, a small parcel in there addressed to me. Better still, it wasn’t a parcel I was expecting. Those are the best kind of parcels.
This parcel had come all of the way from my publisher, Wacky Bee, in the UK as a special Christmas treat and included a lovely Christmas card and possibly the coolest pencils I have ever received. They’re Storyteller Pencils and include some of the best opening lines for stories ever.
And they are definitely the big hint I needed to get started on my next book!
