January 13 – 19, 2020

Another fun week of writing. I did well in all the assignments. I scored a 90 on the Interior assignment. I scored a 100 on everything else, so I finished with an average of 96. My class G.P.A is 98.

  1. Exterior Locations: 
    1. We discussed how it’s better to show, rather than tell by watching a Pixar short, PIPER. We had to explain how the location affected the main character.
  2. Int.
    1. Using our characters from last week’s persona assignment, we scripted a scene using only interior slugline.

  3. Cliches Vs Tropes
    1. We discussed cliches and tropes. I scored low on the quiz because I didn’t realize how many cliches there is.
  4. Children’s Books
    1. We learned that scripting can go hand in hand with writing children’s books. This is another area of interest for me.
  5. Kids’ Shows
    1. Our lecture this week was on children’s television shows. We went over Sesame Street and how as a writer you have to hide the educational piece and violence in kids shows.
