Writing Course: Final Week

74. Final Week

My first Writing Course is now complete. There is no exam, and I handed in the last assignment early. The final mark is a 92%.


But also Boo!

I enjoyed the course and how I could see it improve my writing. More than I felt the course I took in high school did. It was more organized and had a more definitive focus. Both classes had their pros and cons, however, Writer’s Craft (high school) I was able to interact with others and bounce ideas off each other, it was a group learning environment and was by far my favourite class I ever took in high school.

This course was online and had zero interaction with other people, but I enjoy learning and teaching myself (in a matter of speaking) and overall both courses benefited me and my writing.

As sad as I am to finish the course, I’ll be happy to move onto the next or just something else completely.

Writing Course: Week 10

72. WC Week 10

This week in the Writing Course was the first time I deliberately put off an assignment, I just didn’t want to do it. so I put it off for about a week (because I did start it early in the first place) and then I knocked it off in about two days and stopped caring what the mark might turn out to be.

The joys of school, right? Some assignments are great, other’s not so much.

The assignment was to write a screenplay based on a poem called “Frankie and Johnny” and I didn’t like the poem when I read it so to try to turn it into a script was boring and rather irritating. Hence the reason I sat there and just got it over with.

Anyway, there is one more week to go; hopefully the last assignment isn’t terrible like this one was.

Still can’t believe it’s going to be over.

Writing Course: Week 9

70. Week 9

There’s only two weeks left to go for my writing course, and this week was the easiest one so far. There wasn’t an assignment so there was only a quiz and a chapter to read. However the chapter was quite long I was sitting and reading for over an hour, when the other chapters took me half that time.

The focus was imagery and sound, so it went over the basic concepts of poetry and how the English language naturally has a rhythm to it when you frame certain words together. It’s how song writing works and goes far beyond simple rhyming techniques, to the point where I just started reading and stopped trying to understand it all because that was not happening.
