I have been missing in action on the blogosphere from one week as I have been busy with Interactive Sessions with students, which has been arranged by my publishers Scholastic India. This week, I have visited 3 schools and had four sessions with students.
It’s been amazing meeting the Principals, students and the teachers of all these schools. The children have been super enthusiastic, super eager and super energetic. Reading a few pages of my story and talking to them has been an experience I will remember all my life.
Fun Moments from my visit to Edify School. This boy was one of the cutest boys I have met. He ran up to me to take my autograph. I asked him his name. “Yuvraj,” he said. When I gave him my autograph, he said “Wow, you know the spelling of my name.” I was like dude, I am a writer, I know lots of spellings. Then the boy told me that many people get his spelling wrong. This is the second time someone has spoken to me about spellings, the first was my English teacher in school.
Most of the kids were delighted to meet an author. They all would walk up to me and practically want to touch me to check whether I was a real person or an illusion. Many children would stand close to me and whisper in my ears.
Today which is Children’s Day I visited two more schools. It was very hectic and tiring. I have taken a break from visiting schools for a week as I have to dedicate time to read Mark Noce (my critique Partner’s MS) as well as revise one ms of mine and polish another one.
This week, starting from today I will be visiting you all to catch up with what you all have been up to behind my back.
