What were your first couple of lessons like?

My first one was deeply philosophical...

Hi guys!
I'm really excited for ext. 2.
I will be doing a short story, with (hopefully) a bit of poetry throughout...

Does anyone have a clear idea of what their major is about yet? :confused:

Good luck!

Not yet - well, not an exact idea. Just general ideas appropriate to the form of poetry, and what I am personally interested in exploring.

What about you? Anything solid yet?

Why did you both select stories?

Well, my initial idea was to appropriate T.S. Elliot's 'Prufrock' (from mod. B) and give him a past/story (life writing elective from ext 1), if that makes sense, hence my chosen form. Will probably include some sort of discovery for that extra linkage.

Still early days though, so there is a possiblity I will change it a billion times before I hand it in.

So what are you interested in exploring?

Wow that is basically exactly my MW. My whole thing was about fusion of textual form; the condensed meaning and image within poetry yet the arc of the novel.. etc., etc., and whatnot. I basically had this whole story about an Ancient Forest and this poet. And the Muse, yada yada yada. *Insert very obvious link to Elective II: Romanticism* :haha:

What a cool idea - it reminds me of Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys!

Hi; I'm doing short story!
I'm not exactly sure what it's going to be, but I'm going to use a historical event of some sort for inspiration.
Maybe that will change after I start to get bored with it and go with my weird ideas.

Hi guys, first post on the forums, happy to say I'll be doing EE2.

My concept so far will be a short story revolving around a character who is a neurotic perfectionist and pretty much exploring the damage that can cause. I have a pretty good idea on what he is a perfectionist towards; most likely going to be mathematics, have a more specific idea in that line but not ready to share it yet haha.

Classes have been great so far, fair amount of free writing tasks and it feels like everyone in the class really deserves to be there.

Hey Guys~

I'm doing a film!
Btw, just asking, but why do people always discourage films?

Thanks :)!!! So excited!
