Character Development

At the moment I am working on my narrative.
I decided to write a story in the holidays called 'Oliver.' The story is about a friendly monster who struggles to fit in with his somewhat ghastly friends.

Oliver ventures into the small town nearby to try and make friends, but everyone runs from him before he even gets a chance to say hello. Oliver struggles with not fitting in with the fierce looking monsters and has an empty feeling inside his chest.

One day Oliver meets Timothy. Who isn't scared of Oliver's appearance. They become good friends, and the empty feeling inside Oliver's chest, has been replaced by a warm glow.

This story will hopefully be picked up by the womens and childrens hospital, who will *fingers crossed* hopefully publish it at the end of the year. It will help young children who regularly visit the hospital to realise the importance of friendship even when they feel different from every body else.


  1. I really like this, Lisa. Great concept, totally awesome monsters. Here's hoping they publish it (but I'm almost certain they will). It and you, are both amazing. X

  2. :P
    Aw thanks Nadia! I think you are amazing too! snap. haha.

    I mostly like the 'screaming jelly bean' monster. Hopefully they like it. The Art Director of the W&CH is showing the manuscript to some child therapists on wednesday, so hopefully they like the story!
    if not, and it all falls through, i'm still gonna try and get it published at the end of the year! :)

  3. I agree, fantastic concept and amazingly adorable little monsters! Can't wait to see the finished product!! x

  4. Hey I heard about you from Lilian. Very cool Stuff! I did the same course as you I just graduated last year. You're going to do very well :D

  5. oh my gosh! Lilian and I were primary school buddies! haha. It's such a small world! (particularly Adelaide!)
    Thanks for those kind words! Just the confidence boost I needed right now! This year is absolutely flat out!
    How did you ever get through third year alive!? hahaha!

  6. Adelaide is super tiny! Good and bad thing. I got through third year doing as little as possible until the end haha. Do not do that.
