I have passed my level 2 course, A215, and can now say I am working towards a degree in English Literature. I am delighted to have achieved a Grade 2 pass, with my highest mark for my EMA. I know I could have done better so I have spent the last 5 weeks working on my study skills and critical thinking.
This has confirmed my suspicion that I am definitely not a poet. Does this mean I am a writer? My original novel has been completely discarded and cannot be rescued, even with extensive editing. I am starting from the beginning with a ‘character driven plot.’
With all my energy going into two courses next year along with my family and household commitments, will I have time to work on my novel? I am writing in my journal daily but I wonder if I should finish some of my work in progress instead. Either way it is still writing practice.
For now I am going to enjoy the last four weeks of the school holidays with my children. It’s going to be a busy year and I need to rest now while I can. Congratulations to all my fellow students, some of which achieved a distinction! I am in talented company.
