Project 1 – Writing Exercise Reflection

I wasn’t able attend the studio class in which everyone else did this writing exercise although I did at home with the same constraint of 30 minutes. I found this a useful exercise but a difficult one. My biggest problem with writing is coming up with an idea. I spent the first 10 minutes pondering about what to write about until I stumbled upon the idea of camping as I’d camped last weekend. This piece of writing could easily be adapted into a horror/thriller film which is interesting as it’s not really a genre I generally enjoy. It was the first fiction writing exercise I’ve done since Writing Media Texts in the first semester of my degree. It was a useful exercise as it prompted me to think more about ideas for short films.
