Excerpt 1: Bullying.

Bullying can be a huge issue for teenagers. So how about putting together a combined self-help and fiction book? Your book will contain information and advice on what to do and who to contact if you're being bullied. It will be interspersed with short stories about teenagers who deal successfully with bullies in their own way – and ensure the villains get their comeuppance. The stories could illustrate the points you make in the text.

Make the stories as intriguing, entertaining, funny and inspiring as possible, so your readers want to talk about them with their friends - and hopefully emulate the characters in the stories.

You could include a few comic strips too. A streetwise title such as Down Wiv Bullies might help sell it to them (although I think that one has already been used).

With the right marketing, your book could become required reading in schools. Perhaps every student will be issued a copy. (Not to mention teachers, counsellors and social workers.) That's a lot of sales - and there's a fresh batch of students every year who will need more copies!

Excerpt 2: Storyline – troublemaker in trouble.

One member of the class is always getting everyone else into trouble. They've lost count of the number of times the whole class has been put in detention because of this one boy's (or girl's) behaviour. Now they've finally had enough - it's time to do something about him.

At that afternoon's detention, the boy in question fails to show up. The teacher, who is fully aware of who the troublemaker really is, and is fully aware of the class's resentment of him, demands to know what they've done with him. They refuse to answer. He gives each of them a piece of paper and instructs them to write down what has happened to the missing boy. They had expected this - it's a technique this teacher often uses - and they each write something different. Some of the answers are extremely disturbing.

What have they really done with the boy? Are they all in on it? Why didn’t they simply say they didn’t know where he was, rather than giving elaborate, ludicrous or horrific explanations that might get them into trouble? What happens next, and what will happen in the end? Did any of the boys write down the true explanation of what happened to the boy? Perhaps the answer is buried in there somewhere, among all the spurious ones and red herrings. All their answers might need to be investigated anyway.
