I've just had my assignment back from my Writing Bureau tutor and I'm really pleased with the comments. He thought my play was well written, realistic and was suitable for radio.
I must admit, I've always found writing dialogue easier than description. I can do description when I put my mind to it, but its not something that comes naturally to me.
The play was only a partial, but I was so encouraged by his comments, that I think I might complete it and see if I can get it accepted. You never know.
I read a really interesting article about one of the writers for The Archers. I was brought up in a farming family and listening to The Archers is one of my guilty secrets - I download the podcasts and listen to it while I'm doing the washing up! Maybe I could think of an interesting plot line for them , even if its just for a bit of fun.
But I'm getting carried away with myself now. When I got my assignment back I was also surprised to find that there was another assignment attached, odd, as I thought there were only ten assingments. This one though is much easier, as its any piece of fiction up to 3000 words, on which I will receive some feedback. My only problem with this will be deciding what to pick!
I wonder if there will be any more assingments after this?
