Hey Guys, It’s Katherine. Welcome to my blog. This is where I will be telling you as much […]
Hey guys, its Katherine! I was rummaging through my old files and I found this piece I wrote way back in year 9 when we did our anti-smoking campaigns. I thought it was quite nice to share it with you all. Updates for my new series on my time in writers house coming soon xx
Is it wrong of me to think,
that you so alone, would grip so tight?
How is it that though your mask falls,
and you are so cold, that you would still take flight?
I’m really excited to be able to tell you that I have started work on my debut novel!
Hey Guys and Girls, it’s Katherine. This one has been quite a hard poem to post. Last week I was confirmed as a member of the Church of England. I have been on an alpha course and over the last couple of months, my faith has grown so enormously. I feel so loved and blessed by the family I have grown in the church and in the friendships that will stay with me all the days of my life. This poem is my ode to the love that I bare for my saviour Jesus Christ and how I can see him at work.
Before getting into the main article I want to clarify that this was written as one of my practise papers in A level English Language and not all of the views are my own personal opinions and were expressed to show a directed opinion in my mock exam. I achieved 30/40 marks in this question and was really happy with the outcome of this paper. I hope you enjoy this example answer from the 2016 AS English Language paper 2.
Hey, it’s Katherine. So I got a level 8 in my English language GCSE. I was so happy when my English teacher decided she wanted to recall my paper so that it could be used as an example piece. I got 36/40 for this question: 23/24 for content and 13/16 for grammar. I have changed a couple of grammatical errors that I spotted but other then that and a word I had to guess at because it was covered by the examiners marking, it is completely unchanged. I couldn’t find the same image that the exam board used but the image is a pretty close to the tone of the original image and to the tone of my writing. I am so proud of this piece of work and hope you enjoy or that this is helpful to you if you are studying for your GCSEs.
This question stumped me for a little while as to what to write. It is a question filled with hope and ideas for a better future and yet it is so grounded in our daily reality.
I have been meaning to post more and share more stuff about myself and who I am as an individual and I thought that a really nice way of doing this would be with one of those 5-year Q and A journals. I don’t think I’ll be doing these questions for five years but we can start with one and see where we go.
Hey guys, it’s Katherine! Today I wanted to talk about where to start with the whole writing thing and why people get so lost with it. It took me about a year of wanting to write a book to actually understand why when I started writing I didn’t find I was getting anywhere. I would start writing the first couple of pages and then come to a standstill.
I didn’t have a plan.
I didn’t know what was happening or how my characters would develop and most importantly I didn’t know how my story was going to end. When you start writing it is important to know all of these things. When teachers tell you to write and plan a story they often don’t fully explain themselves. I like using the SALES technique to being my planning with a premise.
