Tuesday: Course update

I have a kidney infection due to the catheter nurses not changing it last week.

Currently reading the Forbidden Sister: Roxy’s story by VC Andrews. I love her books about fallen women with an air of mystery about them. My favourite series of hers is still flowers in the attic

I have managed to do the two creative pieces for my assignment due in August but I’m scared the first piece maybe too dark and not hit the marking criteria but, I’m going to take a risk and send it anyway and show Jerry my tutor what I can do.

My classmates have been great, reviewing bits and pieces for me.

I can’t believe I managed to do the exercise booklet in 18 hours instead of 80 and I did not rush it either even though my notes will never be marked I always make sure the work is too high standard. My secret weapon is Mel who writes down my notes while all I’ve got to do is think of what to say and she put it on paper in twice the time that I would.

With all those inspirational cutouts I stuck in my notebook; plots for new stories seem to be flooding out of me.

My only problem is I’ve yet to discover the discipline to sit down and write one all the way through. When I was writing carefree and consequences I wrote it by Wattpad so I wrote a chapter by chapter, keeping it relatively short and awaiting readers feedback before I ploughed on with the next one.

I am determined to write my mermaid novel and get it published by at least 2020 in December.

Can’t wait to write my commentary and then to hand it in, so I can move on with the next assignment. I can’t wait to show Jerry in my commentary that I have been doing the extra reading at home and able to discuss other writers influences on me and advice from the guidebook,

Thank you to my friend Sue who popped over today and kept me company for a while and cheered me up.

Good luck to all my writing friends!

Speak soon,

Is Carefree and Consequences the right book for you?

Hi I am a student on the creative writing course with OCA. My name is Rachel I’m 21, Welsh and an author. In January last year I finally had the guts to publish my romance novel carefree and consequences with Amazon publishing.

I was wondering if anyone would like to buy a copy? This is the book in two sentences: I hope you buy a copy of my 1950s romance novels where teenagers Annie May and Lewis land themselves in hot water over their summer dalliances. They have been cut off from family and are at rock bottom. They are faced with a huge responsibility with just their teenage friends to help, some of whom are already making future plans. Can Annie May and Lewis have a bright future or will a stupid mistake always hang over them? Here’s the UK link: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B07MF1XV2N/ref=dbs_a_w_dp_b07mf1xv2n
