Year 2 – Week 1 – Greg (WIP)

[ This is a WIP. Most of this is completed, but I need to finish up a few details before it’s fully suitable for reading. A cold has been, to put it bluntly, kicking my ass. That makes writing… more than difficult for me. ]

This week we were introduced to Unit 9’s content. We will be learning skills to write for specific audiences, branch outside of our comfort zones and look into different mediums. The ultimate goal of this unit is to write for a charity concerning issues pertaining to young adults / today’s youth. This is for an exhibition in the future.

Year 2 – Week 1 – Celia

Brainstorming & Unit Briefing

This week we were introduced to the units for the year. Unit 9, 10, 11 & 12 before the FMP – Unit 13. For Celia’s lessons, we are focusing on Unit 10. This is a focus on understanding our target audience as we are tasked with creating an educational piece for 5 – 11 year olds in primary school. It can be of any medium, but the topic must be suitable for that age range and must be educational of some topic or skill.

Week 10 – Post Analysis (4/4)

For my final week of the project, I was beginning to run out of time. I’d only just come off the high of writing introductions. I was burning out. To that end, I stopped writing. I felt as if I had done enough, and that the academic side of my work had to be finished first. After all, my personal side of the project would continue on past college. It could go on for months, or even years.

Below is further insight into that, as well as how the rest of the prologue chapter will play out.

Week 9 – Post Analysis (3/4)

During this week, I was full steam ahead on my story. I found myself writing a good 4000+ words worth of introductions before scrapping the whole lot, rewriting them and ending up with over 8000 words. Purely for introductions!

Here we go.

Week 8 – Post Analysis (2/4)

After a talk with Zoran, the media section’s manager, I was enlightened to the topic of quantum physics. I’d remembered similar topics, but the fact that all of these philosopical matters were connected was only made aware through this conversation. In fact, it helped a lot, as you’ll see below.

…It gets somewhat complicated below, fair warning.

Week 7 – Post Analysis (1/4)


There will be 4 post analysis’, focusing on examining and evaluating my current work. This is to expand upon and show how I have used particular writing skills for my benefit. Each analysis will be 500 words long, and focus on only one post, one character or one story decision, with differing topics each time.

The first will look into the story’s opening!

This is the Tumblr blog on which the story is hosted! Click ‘start reading here’ on the right to read from the beginning!

Week 4, 5 & 6 – Evolution & Beta Product


With the research and my skills analysed, I set about the creation process for my work. This spawned a few ‘beta’ designs and changes to my schedule, the setting and my expectations. By the end of Week 6, I had finished my presentation and knew how far I wanted to take this project, as well as the key elements of my fictional story.
