Whilst still trying to get to grips with WordPress, I have set aside today to get a good start on the course work for Module A363 (Advanced Creative Writing), which I am studying with the Open University.
This is my seventh OU course and my fourth year of study towards a BA Open Hons degree. I love the start of a new module (or course as they were known until recently); opening up new textbooks, the starting of a new notebook, the feeling of wonder as it all starts to come together. I will also be starting module A251 World Archaeology in November, so a packed nine months is ahead of me. Dear Husband is also studying with OU this year, so no doubt come time for TMAs (Tutor Marked Assessments), the air will be alight with sparks of creativity and smoke from the tips of our fingers on keyboards.
Today’s work will be to read through the first chapter of the text-book along with reading any additional matter and also a few writing exercises. If I discover any gems whilst doing those exercises, I may well decide to subject you all to the questionable pleasure of reading them ‘in the rough’. Please be gentle with me And so, as the title says, now the work begins.
