Has anyone out there heard of the One Year Adventure Novel program? Basically, you write one novel in a year. If you go to the website, oneyearnovel.com , and click on Student Novels Showcase, they have a bunch of stories from the kids who wrote them. The stories are pretty good. So far, I've read two. My favorite one was I Now Pronounce You Dead. It's a great mystery about a girl whose family runs a wedding service. When the bride is murdered at a wedding - in their own backyard - she decides to find out solve the mystery. It's really good! The guy who designed the curriculum also has a second curriculum called Other Worlds, which is designed specially for if you want to write sci fi or fantasy.
Just thought I'd mention it!
