Despite the distractions of the decorating, I've managed to get some work done today, but writing has eluded me once more.
I've tried to make up for it tonight though by starting to edit my last assignment for the Writer's Bureau short story and novel course I've been trying to finish.
I can't say this course has been a resounding success for me. I think it would be very good for complete beginners, but after have done other courses before, I don't feel I've learnt a great deal from it. Also, I've found that the course has concentrated more on the short story side, and I wanted more of the novel element from it. The last two assignments have been about writing radio plays. Having never written these before, I've been rather stumped by the lack of guidance and so have put off completing these last two assingments. In saying that though, by having to do this, I feel that I have learnt something about a genre I wouldn't normally consider.
At one point I did wonder if I could be bothered to finish the course, but I don't like quitting anything I've paid for and will now be glad to get to the end.
I hope to finish the editing tomorrow and will be able to send the assignment off with a grateful sigh.
