Not around much now for a couple of weeks
Please forgive me for not having been round to your blogs very much over the last few days. I'm at a crucial time in my OU studies - in three weeks time I have to submit my final piece in the Creative Writing course (A215) and this will be sent to my tutor and two examiners and will get me 50% of my final mark for the year.
We have a choice of genres for this piece and I have chosen to do one of an autobiographical nature. You might remember that I only got 60% when I did the poetry month recently. That was followed by an autobiographical piece which got me 84% and a recommendation from my tutor that I extend it and submit it to either writing competitions or for publication. That has encouraged me to do this final piece in a similar format - stories of my 'wild child time' involving a couple of well known names (all of it true and no doubt extremely libellous). For obvious reasons I am not going to put them on my blog - we'll see what happens with them in the future. Let's just say they involve a person who has an airline and a record label.
The photos which I took yesterday are to show that the peonies I blogged about recently have bloomed. It's one of the most beautiful shrubs I have ever seen.
