As you know, next week you are writing the prequel to Francis. But I also know you probably want to have free reign and write your own suspense story, so this is your chance!
Write a suspense story. Try not to have it last over a long period of time, otherwise you will rush the event. Pick a short moment, like Francis (girl goes on boat ride) or Alma (girl goes in toy shop).
Think about VIRUS:
SHORT SENTENCES + SHOW ME, DON'T TELL ME

As you know, I wasn't too impressed with people not remembering how to find the area of a triangle... so time to practise! There are three levels of challenge for you to pick from.
And remember... base x height and then divide by 2!
