Back to University today!

Today is the day I had to return to University after a good few months of relaxing and writing my next novel The Author.

I will be doing Poetry and Prose with some dramatic writing for the stage and radio in my Creative Writing course, and Sociolinguistics in my English Language part of the course… So maybe I will stop writing novels and become a poet? I certainly do not plan to, my poetry is probably as appealing as watching paint dry and as creative and poetic as the language that people on the Jeremy Kyle show utter… but we’ll see.

I may even post some of my poetry on here, to see what you think.

Memories

So my parents are sorting out the house, you know, the usual thing of getting rid of your unwanted and unloved stuff.
They came across my old English books at school. It’s now I realise how set up and cheesy school is. Glad to see that my spelling and Creative Writing has improved, significantly. But, at the age of 9/10 I don’t think that, for one of my writing tasks, I would write for the proposed question ‘How do I learn best?’ My instinct reply would be ‘when I drink lots of water’, ‘when my brain is swiched (that’s how it’s spelt) on’ and ‘when I do not cheet (spelling again).’

Another task was to write Similes, I decided to write similes about my brother. The highlight of this task was my creativity, which showed my stupidity at the same time. E.g. ‘My brother is as stupid as a computer.’ The teacher even questioned it, ‘are computers stupid?’. Still got my house point though!!

You’ve got to love looking at your work from school.

Have you got any funny stories of your school days?
