Having recently completed modules in languages and maths, I decided that this year I would take a chance on A215 Creative Writing – a level two course provided by the Open University. I chose creative writing this year because I think it’s about time that I explored the business of writing in greater depth in order to explore my writing strengths and weaknesses. Hopefully improving things as I go along.
A215 covers fiction, poetry and life writing. At the moment I write fiction – mainly short stories with a tendency more towards flash fiction. It will be interesting to discover if fiction is still my ‘thing’ by the end of the course. It’s not beyond the bounds of possibility that by next year I will be writing more poetry or suddenly feel inspired to write a biography. Who knows and that is part of the fun of taking this kind of course.
Hopefully I’ll be able to write regularly about the course once it starts in October.
