Week Two of the Writing Course

Managed to summarize the four stories into one sentence and got 3 out of 4 spot on :)  My story The Dowager was given a new title in the third draft and became All things Lost. It really needs several more drafts before it becomes a reasonable story. Nik gave me some valuable advice and encouraging comments. said it was a strong start, hope I'm going to finish well too :)

All in all I'm glad I'm doing this course, maybe one day I'll be placed in a writing competition, the Bridport Prize would be nice. Got to go, have work to do. Unfortunately its not course work but work work!

  1. Hi Stella, good luck with your writing. I dream of being placed in the Bridport Prize, too!

    I'm also commenting, as you left a very lovely reply to a blog post I wrote just over a month ago http://jen-campbell.blogspot.com/2011/08/what-i-talk-about-when-i-dont-know.html, and I'm now doing a fundraiser to raise money for the research centres who are looking into a cure for these sight problems. I'm writing 100 poems in just one weekend [eek!]. If you could spread the word about it, I'd be very grateful.


    Thanks so much,

    Jen xx
