Good afternoon folks and thanks for tuning in!
Yes, I know, that’s right, I said good AFTERNOON!
And do you know what, I really don’t mind one bit!
Yesterday was my last day on the writing course in Oxford and as ever by the time the day was over my head was so full I was almost in a catatonic daze. In a way I am glad that it is over but also a bit gutted that it has finished. The lecturer, Julie Hearn was an absolute star. Very knowledgeable, sharp as a tack and as smart as they come. She really does know her craft and if I can have taken anything away from the course then I am hoping it is to be a trifle more fluid in what I write – You see it turns out that just because I know what is going on in my descriptions, it doesn’t necessarily mean the reader does!! And also that I need to be a little more intense in personalising someones experience, making the reader feel what the subject is feeling.
Pretty good things to learn I think.
