Thank you so much for the character breakdowns, you’ve been sending in, and for the Real Life Creepy Stories. (Do more! Tell me how it feels when you get scared!)
And thank you, too, for the pictures you’ve been sending in, to illustrate the characters that I posted up last week. My favourite is this one, that has come from the divine Gareth Southwell, in Wales. OK, it’s a bit of a cheat, since Gareth is a professional illustrator, who says he could be up for a collaboration.
But anyway, here is his Amelia de la Court, who is the snobby Queen Bee of our tale. (The sort of girl who’s always surrounded by sidekicks, who pick up on her sneers. The sort of girl who tells you about her upcoming birthday, then says you’re not invited…)
Do you know girls like this? Might you tell us about The Worst People In Your School? You can change the names, before sending. My tip is to write down everything they do, that you don’t like, then just to send me a few of their worst habits and actions.
Enjoy! This is the centre of why I love writing: if someone is horrid to us, in real life, it scalds our very insides. But we can write it down, and everyone will relate. In real life, we all feel we’re Cinderella, surrounded by evil sisters… Write to me, my Cinderellas, and we will banish evil with the magic of our tales!
