I’ve just completed my first draft for my dissertation with a little over a month to go to the deadline. I’ll be honest, I’m more excited about the project now than when I sat down to write it. Usually I don’t have this problem with my creative projects; I sit down hammer out whatever it is that is in my head and then when the novel or short story is finished I run away from it until it’s time to edit.

Hugh here with a quick update as to the projects I am currently working on. I’ve got two major projects on the boil at the moment, both of them assessments for my MA one of which I am a little less certain of than the other.
My dissertation project, which I’ll talk about first is fairly simple in premise; take the High Fantasy genre that I love and adore, and update it using allegory. To do this I am taking recent events, tragedies and disasters, studying them and the effects that they had and implementing a version of this in my novel. (Sadly the world is throwing me a number options but more on that later.) For example Grenfell tower will become a slum wide fire reflecting the poverty of the area and the responses to this will be based on arguments made by politicians, landlords and survivors of the Grenfell tower fire. Obviously it wont be word for word but a general gist or sentiment will hopefully be distilled should I be successful. For this I am completely revamping an old universe to the point of non recognition, the only thing it has in common is names at this point, will likely post some draft work when I have something I would consider half way decent to show.
The second project is for a module assessment and for this I was hoping to do a false biography focusing on different experiences of Troy or the Trojan war growing up. Taking the reader through from cartoon books to studying the Iliad for an A Level in classical civilisation. I’m still not 100% sure how I’m going to approach this, or whether or not this will be the final idea. Right now I’m leaning towards having a narrator introduce the different experiences interspersed with bits of prose and biographical style writing, but we shall see how that goes.
Outside of these two project the main form of writing I am doing is the blog, I’m trying to get at least two posts up a week at present, maybe more depending on how much of a backlog I’ve built up at any one given time.
So that’s me, what about you? Are you writing anything? Let me know in the comments section below.
Take it easy guys!
Over and out.
