Today was creative writing day so the ten minute play was finished and we watched some of them acted out, what good actors they were, it was very interesting how it all came to life with scene setting and direction on facial expressions and voices. I found it interesting just how much it is linked to creative writing and could see the benefits of what I have learnt by doing it. Some of the class did not like doing it and found it a lot harder than writing stories, I guess that comes from us all being different. Today made me think about using different adverbs when describing things as we do tend to stick to the same ones without even thinking about it.
The next few days I am going to spend writing down all my ideas as I feel a bit overloaded and need to get some stories finished so I can start afresh. I find it surprising that even though I am writing something I still get ideas flying around about a completely different story. I guess my brain is just programmed to ideas, settings and conclusions. Not that I am complaining, I just wish there were more hours in the day to get it all down on paper or on the laptop.
We have a long weekend here in the UK as Monday is May Day and the sun is said to be shining from today onwards, so I am going to have to fit in some gardening at some point. Next week is going to be busy as I have two grandchildren’s birthdays, I love the excitement that shows on their faces when they are young, the ripping off of wrapping paper and smiles so big you lose yourself in them.
What have you got planned for the weekend?
