Hi, I'm Martin and

this is Newsround.

0:00:130:00:16

And first, the UK continues to be

battered by freezing

0:00:160:00:18

temperatures and heavy snow.

0:00:180:00:21

Today, a new red weather

warning has been issued

0:00:210:00:24

in parts of south Wales,

Devon and Somerset.

0:00:240:00:27

Heavy snow has arrived in the area.

0:00:270:00:30

A red warning is the most serious

the Met Office can issue,

0:00:300:00:32

and means that the weather is likely

to cause damage.

0:00:320:00:37

Next, to Florida in the US,

where kids have returned to school

0:00:370:00:39

after a serious gun attack that

happened there two weeks ago.

0:00:390:00:43

The BBC's Paul Blake went to meet

one of the students going back

0:00:430:00:47

to lessons for the first time.

0:00:470:00:49

Hey, Newsround.

0:00:500:00:51

I'm here outside a school in Florida

in the United States.

0:00:510:00:54

And it's a big day

for students here.

0:00:540:00:56

Their first day back in class

since a gun attack two weeks

0:00:560:00:59

ago that shocked people

here and around the world.

0:00:590:01:02

17 people were killed and many

others were injured.

0:01:020:01:05

I caught up with 16-year-old Lyliah

Skinner to ask her how she felt

0:01:050:01:08

about going back to school.

0:01:080:01:10

It feels really weird,

because I feel like I fell out

0:01:100:01:13

of the habit of going

to school everyday.

0:01:130:01:18

I'm still a little nervous.

0:01:180:01:19

I think eventually it

will be normal again,

0:01:190:01:21

but not the same normal

it was before the shooting.

0:01:210:01:23

It will probably be a new type

of normal, because those 17 people

0:01:230:01:27

aren't going to be there.

0:01:270:01:31

As the students filed into class

today, they were hoping

0:01:310:01:34

to return to a normal life.

0:01:340:01:36

Many people came to greet

them and offer support.

0:01:360:01:39

Throughout the school day,

police stood guard outside

0:01:390:01:41

the school so that all the students

and teachers would feel safe.

0:01:410:01:48

After class, Lyliah met up with some

of her friends and told me how

0:01:480:01:52

she felt about her first day

back on campus.

0:01:520:01:55

It was really good to

be back in my school.

0:01:550:01:58

It was great to see everyone.

0:01:580:02:01

People that we didn't even talk to,

we talked to them, and we let each

0:02:010:02:06

other know that we have each other's

back, we support each other.

0:02:060:02:14

My friends and I, we hang out

and we paint, and we laugh and make

0:02:150:02:18

jokes to make each other feel better

so we can all heal properly.

0:02:180:02:21

We are very optimistic

about the future.

0:02:210:02:23

We are going to make

sure everyone is OK,

0:02:230:02:26

and we're going to find ways that

work for us and we're

0:02:260:02:30

going to just move on.

0:02:300:02:33

Next, around the world people have

been celebrating reading and writing

0:02:330:02:37

today for World Book Day.

0:02:370:02:40

And loads of you will have been

dressing up for school

0:02:400:02:43

and taking part in activities.

0:02:430:02:46

Well, if all the focus on books has

made you think you might

0:02:460:02:49

like to be a writer,

here are some top tips from some

0:02:490:02:52

big-name authors to help

you create your very

0:02:520:02:54

own bestseller.

0:02:540:02:55

Let your imagination carry

you where ever it wants to go

0:02:550:02:58

and don't stop yourself.

0:02:580:03:01

Pick something that

really happened to you.

0:03:010:03:05

Something exciting or scary,

and then add loads of stuff in so it

0:03:050:03:11

gets really weird and wonderful.

0:03:110:03:14

You might think, I can't write

about hyenas because I've

0:03:140:03:16

never met a hyena.

0:03:160:03:19

But you can imagine

what a hyena is like.

0:03:190:03:22

The most important thing is to have

as much fun as you can.

0:03:220:03:25

Don't think that there's any

such thing as a right

0:03:250:03:27

story and a wrong story.

0:03:270:03:30

The only thing there

is, is your story.

0:03:300:03:35

Always have a pencil with you.

0:03:350:03:38

An ear is a good place to store

a pencil, like this.

0:03:380:03:41

And so then, you can always draw.

0:03:410:03:43

Write and read a lot,

as much as you can.

0:03:430:03:45

Because the more you do it,

the better you get,

0:03:450:03:48

and the more you read,

the more you see what other people

0:03:480:03:50

do and how they do it.

0:03:500:03:52

And read as much as you can

and try to absorb all your favourite

0:03:520:03:55

books and authors and implement that

into your own writing.

0:03:550:03:59

As Philip Larkin the poet said,

you write the book that you yourself

0:03:590:04:02

would most like to read,

but nobody has bothered

0:04:020:04:06

to write for you.

0:04:060:04:08

And so whatever you love most,

that's what you will write down,

0:04:080:04:11

and it will be a really good book.

0:04:110:04:14

Everybody's different.

0:04:140:04:15

You've got to find your own way.

0:04:150:04:17

But for me, what's most important

is seeing the book as a sort of map.

0:04:170:04:21

And the most important point

on a map is the end.

0:04:210:04:23

So I'm writing a novel

at the moment, and I've already

0:04:230:04:26

written the last chapter before

I wrote the first.

0:04:260:04:29

That's my most important tip.

0:04:290:04:36
