You can get full marks with two pages.I think i did ok in my trial in the essay and short answer question. But i did most preparation in the creative writing section but none of my 3 seed ideas could link remotely to the question and i ran out of time.
I only wrote 2 pages in the end, though i did put some nice metaphors, similes and other techniques in. Do you think it is possible to get say 11/15 with 2 pages of writing?
Exactly the same situation in my HSC EXCEPT my creative was like a billion times worse. lolBtw, I made my creative up on the spot with no seed ideas or anything and I made up the story as it went along, I didn't even plan or anything and I got 13/15. Lol.
My creative wasn't good at all and I still got an alright mark.
I'm thinking about writing a story about my grandma. Set in a hospital (but i don't really say that but i describe it enough so it is understood), having a flashback (gets very descriptive and emotional), but in the end it is revealed that I have to make the decision between keeping her on life support or taking her off of it, and i choose to take her off as she no longer belongs to this world.
so it encompasses familial belonging, and also that she is no longer "belonging to this world".
I think its cliche, the whole concept of somebody dying, but i think if i express it right, it will be different? and the life support thing hopefully hasn't been done too many times?
tell me what you guys think
Doesn't sound so badHow about a homeless man in the city streets, and how he doesn't belong with society? Until someone generously donated money to him, where he goes and buys food, clothing and enough to get hired by a job? That way you have a character who doesn't belong, and he then resolves it when his is financially supported?
I do advanced english and our teacher JUST resigned, and we just had our new teacher start today. She's a HSC marker and she said NEVER do a creative writing piece like that, or that ends with "it was just a dream" or that begins with "i am new at this school and i don't belong here." she said they see thousands of those at HSC marking and they are not original !!why not trying to use the plot of an orphan child? like start off with how perfect her life is with her family and parents etc and then at the end be like but i sit in this orphanage wishing it would be one day :S lol
or you could talk about bullying?
and hav a moral behind it about rascism or sumthin?
