Assignment 3 – Feedback


I didn’t get much writing done today, well, saying that, I did type up a short story from one of my notebooks for use, hopefully, as a competition entry……if I can double the word count. Will see how I go with that over the weekend πŸ™‚

I received my tutors feedback today on my 3rd OCA Assignment. Very pleased with her comments although, re-reading the piece I submitted, I did manage to miss some really silly mistakes. The odd piece of tense (one of my major weaknesses) and some punctuation 😦 Hopefully, things I will get better at with more practice.

I also need to stop stating the obvious, ie, let the reader fill in the blanks and concentrate more on my show…..stop telling lol πŸ˜‰

As I’ve decided to enter a few competitions and perhaps send out some submissions, I did a bit of research. It seems that most of them want work that hasn’t been available anywhere else, inc being published on Blogs, unless they’re private. So, I decided to start a notebook, specifically for subs and competition entries, so I can keep track on what I’ve submitted where.

Looking for a title for my current short story idea I ended up surrounded by all my notebooks….. It’s a good job I do my writing on a 6 foot dining table! Lol

The top 4 are the ones I’m currently working with. I love flicking through them and playing with the ideas I’ve jotted down over the last 14 months πŸ™‚

Sooooo, I now have a date for my next Assignment……30th January…..but I have to work through the next set of exercises first πŸ˜‰
