Uber-belated blog resumption...

Visible to anyone in the world

So, it's over two years since my last post. Since then I've sailed, battled, scraped and generally made it through a bunch of other modules and am about to embark upon the home straight* of my degree: A363 Advanced Creative Writing.

It's natural at this point to look back at what I did for A215 (common-or-garden) Creative Writing...

  • Two poems (that were both a bit rubbish)
  • A mini-biography of an Olympic athlete
  • Some sailing ships
  • A dude in a shop
  • Dragons!
  • A trainee lawyer (this was the same person as the guy in the shop)
  • and finally, Space Romans

I've managed to dig out my 'ideas book' from that module, which in the time since then has gone (in my mind) from being a chaotic list of "things" to an Encyclopaedia of Creativity. Sadly, it is in fact more the former than the latter, so I'm going to spend some time over the next few days attempting to decipher it and transfer any useful content into a new notebook... with the aim of it actually being useful in the future. It's going to have sections and everything:

  1. Characters
  2. Places
  3. Events
  4. Interesting objects Cool QuotesRandom stuff

Also, I'll try to update this once in a while.

Also also, I might have another go at painting. I got a bunch of 'stuff' to try to do something properly, and haven't touched them since!

*unless I can re-do or take an alternative module somewhere to try to improve my classification...
