Just checked my OU student home page, and see that the materials for Advanced Creative Writing are due to be sent out on 9th September. I wouldn’t be surprised to see them appear on the door step before then, though, as that has happened frequently on the other courses. So, it’s time to start getting excited!
Except I bought the course book a few months back, and have been steadily reading ahead to get an idea of what the course will entail. Part 1 looks like a ‘get up to speed’ exercise, building on the work carried out on A215 – Creative Writing. Interesting and challenging, but not really new stuff to get my teeth into.
But hey, Part 2. Writing Drama. Stage Plays – Wow. Radio Drama – Double Wow. Writing Films – OMG! That is going to be diff er ent.! Actually, I think since the course materials are imminent, it’s time to stop looking ahead and just wait for the real stuff to arrive.
In the meantime, I’ve posted a short poem under the Poetry and Prose tab. It’s a sonnet about schooldays. Hope you like it!
