❶Magic is the tipping point, for while I love technology, the mystic arts in most books carry the burden of consequence more so than their technological counterparts.

Poetry came next, and it scared me. However two things saved me, one of which was the fact that my tutor is a poet and she ran an excellent tutorial that demystified it. Life writing was the fourth assignment, and I started a couple of things. I thought a piece related to the Family Mystery posts Family Mystery pt. That was fine, but I lost my planned study day because my daughter vomited on the child minder ten minutes after I dropped her off.

So I fell back on something much easier to write and rapidy knocked it through a couple of drafts. This got me something comfortably acceptable for the deadline. The range of marks is 8 percentiles, with the two life writing TMAs being at the bottom of the range, the fiction a couple of percentiles above them, and four below the poetry.

Thoughts and comments welcome. Hiya, I am really glad I have found this information. Though, the best story I have about a book I read occurred in sixth grade. I always wore a trench coat that was able to conceal a novel in at least one of its pockets, and at my school, recess on cold or rainy days was held in the gymnasium.

I often found a perch where I could put my feet up and read in peace and quiet to ride through the loud period, but I never gave much consideration to who was noticing me or what I was reading.

One such rainy day, I sat on my perch, reading a particularly awesome Xanth novel, obviously by Piers Anthony, and one of the girls in my class came through the door nearby and asked me what I was reading.

Without missing a beat, I tilted the book so she could read the title. When she started laughing, I turned the book to figure out what was so funny. Apparently, a book called The Color of Her Panties may not be the best choice for wooing my classmates. Aside from homework and punishment, the first real work that I started writing and never finished, sadly was a book I called The Way of the Sword. I wrote on it only during my 4 th hour Typing class my freshman year in high school and only after my regular work was done.

By the end of that year, I had easily typed over fifty pages for it, but it was sadly done on a type writer. I attempted to re-write the story once for NaNoWriMo, but I do not do well with that sort of writing frenzy.

Yes, but sadly, my bed is not the most productive place to write. I do fairly well now in my new office, with my desk and computer with speakers to blare some music. I also have a door that I can close to keep everyone away from me. My dad tried to write, and is one of the reasons I tried it so often growing up. Outside of that, I am unaware of any. I am not the only English graduate though, as I have an aunt that graduated with the same degree.

I do not believe she is a write though. Honestly, I try to write with as few outside influences as possible. I have read works by dozens of authors, but I try to make sure that my voice is unique. If I were to assign influences, I would actually reference my parents for having such a diverse love of literature to start, and then for passing that passion on to me at a young age.

Nothing could have made my childhood better than those trips to the used book store where we were given permission to get as many books as we wanted, regardless of the price. Overall, I would say I have read the most number of books by Piers Anthony, but most of those were before I graduated from high school.

Since then, Jim Butcher has been the most frequent author I have read. Koontz had some really good stuff, and Crichton have some influences. I have even read the entire Star Trek: Fantasy and Science Fiction, more or less in equal parts. If I had to pick a single genre, I would have to lean ever so slightly toward Fantasy. Magic is the tipping point, for while I love technology, the mystic arts in most books carry the burden of consequence more so than their technological counterparts.

I know you write for adults as well as children but which gives you the most pleasure to write for. I write for no one. Well, I may write for myself on some levels, but I target no one, no demographic, no group of individuals, no specific individual. No, I did not. I wrote it, because it was part of the story that needed to be told. Should downtrodden women with abusive husbands have works written about them to shine light on the issue?

Will I ever write such a work for them? I am currently working on a set of novellas set in a mystical world, where each work will follow the rise of a prophesied hero and their acquisition of a relic that will be used to save the world.

If I had any available, I would gladly point you to them. As soon as I finish the first novella Stormbringer , it will be available at my website www. We have finished the A Creative Writing and are waiting for the final result to come through on that.

I want to write and have gone off the idea of more study. Hopefully I will decide to stick with it and not cancel the AA in the end.

This is one of the poems I originally intended to submit for my OU EMA, then changed my mind and went for the fiction option instead. I also think this poem is more for children, we were told not to write for children so here it is. Hope you like it.

I’m now fully booked for the Open University A Advanced Creative Writing to start on October 4th. I’m a bit nervous and very excited at the same time. It’s October 1 st and the beginning of the Open University A Creative Writing Course. I’m excited and nervous at the same time. Excited because I can now stop panicking, it’s too late for panicking. Nervous because I have met a few of my fellow students via Facebook and they are already proving what a talented bunch they are.
