good luck for viva voce, dude

luckily (in some ways) we had ours at the end of last term. All has been done and dusted....for now. So, for me, I have 'finished' my draft (3rd) and a LOT more editing to do.

Term 2, HERE I COME!

haha guys, stop procrastinating and get back to work.

it doesnt matter where anyone else is up to . some people have it 'done' a few weeks before and do horribly and some finish the night before like me and do really well :)

Hey :)
I'm doing a film, and finished filming and editing the other day.
I am showing my teacher tomorrow. Hopefully success.

Hope you're all going well.

Sounds similar to me... I have until Wednesday to have a "substantial" amount written. I know it's necessary for the teachers to monitor our progress and she's only trying to keep me on track but gah... Honestly, by them constantly looking over my shoulder it's only making it harder for me to work because I get really self-conscious handing over raw "drafts" of my creative writing.

Alas, she's going to eat me for not having enough done.

I'm doing poetry, so the word-count is less, and i'm not sure whether quantity=quality in this case.

But i certainly have finished my 2nd draft. I actually think i'm done. Which can't be right, can it?

I've done around 3, 300 words, and I'm keeping it at 6, 000.
Anything over that would kill my story line.

I have my viva in a few weeks.
Eeep :|

Get to work Christine!

I guess the main issue is motivation and that 'sustainability' to keep edging forward. Oh, and the constant constructive feedback. It gets to you sometimes when you spend so long on something and your teacher doesn't like it at all.

Major works are so exhausting. :(:(

I finished my first draft a few weeks ago, and I'm currently tweaking it a little. It's around 7,200 words.
