The last 2 exercises on my course have brought up a very interesting point…….
If I’m brutally honest with myself, when I write from a 1st person POV the persona of the narrator, doesn’t change much lol….. That’s ok if you take each individual short story separately……but, if you look at a couple together, compare them, it could quite possibly be the same person telling both stories 😦 Hmmmmm….. I really need to sort that out don’t I *slump* lol
So I managed to get 2 exercises done (YAY) and get them up on my other blog which I’m going to use as my Learning Log for the OCA.
Also managed to finish my short story (1800words) called ‘What Lies Beneath’ although hubby seems to think there was a film called that so I might need to change the title. It’s going to be submitted in a competition, after some extensive editing. Pleased with it though 🙂
Talking of my course, I’ve discovered, that, to achieve the degree, my next module will be a whole 9 months of poetry study/writing *huge groan*…..I can’t do it, I really can’t 😦 So at the moment, I’m looking round for alternative Creative Writing Courses…… Not found another degree one which is a bummer, but I quite like the sound of the one run by The London School of Journalism but there’s no actual qualification…..and then of course there’s Faber & Faber’s The Faber Academy which is outrageously expensive. No qualification with that one either, but looks good on the old CV don’t you think? Lol.
Then again, I could just go back to the good old OU….but I wouldn’t be able to start their diploma course until September 2012 *pouts*…..if they’ll have me back that is…..looooong story lol
Anyway, I’m not going to worry about it too much over Christmas….think about it again seriously in the New Year 🙂
