Another small piece of writing success
Yesterday I wrote about an articleÂ I had published in a magazine recently. I forgot to tell you about another piece of writing success I had a few weeks ago.
As regular readers would know, I am currently in the middle of my Master of Arts in Creative Writing course. One of the units I am doing this semester is called Creative Writing: Prose Fiction. In the unit we are required to write three pieces of fiction, totalling 7000 words in all.
The first piece I wrote came from a workshop writing activity. It was about 150 words long. I then expanded this story into a 2000 word story. Along the way I received valuable feedback from the lecturer and fellow students. Thanks Rosanne, Rod, Caz, Tricia and Sally – your insights were great and very useful.
I called the story ‘Shifting Sands.’ I achieved a distinction for the assignment.
Sadly, I can’t print it here for my readers to enjoy. That’s because I will be sending it off to a magazine soon.
