Over this week I’ve had to a form a profile for the audience I want to target which I then used as part of a presentation to pitch my ideas to the rest of my class.
Today though I’ve had to put the first act together first by dividing it into five key points and then writing out the first act as a draft.
On my tutors suggestion I ended up redoing act one in a first person prose style as opposed to the script format I was using, I think it came out much better.
For the five action points it took me awhile to break it down properly from how I had it set up before but I think it turned out fine
For the audience profile I honestly wasn’t sure what the purpose of some of these questions was or how to answer them but I ended up answering them satisfactorily
This pitch was a bit rushed because I’d only a day to do it but I ended up using the pitch sparing and improvising most of my presentation, I could’ve done better if I had more prep time to be honest.

Over the last week I’ve finished writing a text biography of the sole character in my story and collected a series of picture I think reflect the mood of how my piece will look
Writing the character biography took much longer than it should’ve because to be honest I wasn’t sure how much backstory I really needed. After I showed it to my tutor he told me to expand upon the background by coming up with my own details (i.e specific location of the story and the protagonists current mindframe).
My tutor told me to write a fictitious diary entry from the characters perspective, which I did well enough for him to suggest I write my entire story in this first person format instead of the script form I was doing, which I took on board.

For the fourth task I had to first write a 150 word synopsis of how I plan to tell the story. Secondly I had to compose the plot into three acts within the five point structure.
I think I finished this work pretty quickly as I already had a good idea of what I wanted to do with it. I like how this work turned out even if it was pretty basic.
In the future I could perhaps make things more interesting to read as far as structure andd language used even though this was just a plan.

This week we started on work about mythology, for this task we had to compile five pieces of mythology/folklore then select one to create three ideas to make stories out of.
I think I could’ve came up with my ideas quicker but when I got the ideas I think I created it well enough.I always intended to use the Wandering Jew story so the rest of the five folk tales was basically just filler.
Next I have to plan out the actual story.
