Today’s view from the PamCam – my current work in progress, progressing in the sunshine this glorious May Day Bank Holiday.
I would love to tell you that it is going “nicely” but the only nice thing about it is the peacefulness in the garden and not – sadly – the writing. I have my end of module assessment due in a couple of weeks and I’m struggling to get this story written.
The assignment is part creative fiction (4000 words) and the other is a reflective commentary (1000 words), and though I know what it is I want to write, getting the thing written within the constraints of the assignment is more of a challenge than I would like it to be. The scope of my planned story is probably more of a novel-length story, and to do justice to it in the short story of the required 4000 words is leaving me scratching my head. I know what needs to be said, I just don’t know the best way to say it.
I’ve not even started on my commentary yet, but as they say, you have to build the wall before you can decorate it! To continue that analogy, I am currently at the stage of assembling the bricks and getting the mortar to the right consistency and it feels like the actual construction is a way off yet.
Hey ho, it could be worse and it could be raining!
