This week is all about books.
I've now been allocated a tutor for my OU module so it's time to catch up with the reading. This is my first level three course and I'm expecting the assignments to be more demanding and therefore more time consuming. However, many of the set texts hold good memories for me so I'm looking forward to revisiting them. I chose children's literature because, as some of you know, my own story for kiddies is being published later this year. The illustrations are being completed right now by a talented Italian lady.
My diploma course also has a written component. It's not going to be all fun weekends, being creative and learning new techniques. We have to bring our experiences together in a final essay so notes have to be made and other people's work referred to. On the plus side, our student ID card allows us access to the beautiful old library at the college. There are worse places to spend a few hours and if the effort of studying becomes too much the bar is just a few steps away.
