a visit from a future author, AKA my mum

Today my mum came to school to tell us about her book and how to write a novel and she she had a slideshow for how to write a book and things about her's. I was making sure no one was going to take it. I remember my mum said that writing a novel is like making a diamond with the carbon and the carbon in a book is the words in the book. I don't really remember anything else except spoilers (but mister julian, why can't you tell us anything about the book) NO! I won't reveal anything.
