I was talking to my mum and other half yesterday about a few writing ideas I had and also that myself and a friend had. They gave a few opinions and ideas which might make it a good idea. I’m quite excited about it.
I’m being good and writing down bits of conversations I overhear. I was talking to my mum about this (yes, there was a lot of talking going on this weekend) and I realised that I don’t do ‘observing’ as much as I could because when I’m in public I’m usually with other people, so usually caught up with them and not paying attention to other people. This is great from a personal perspective, but from a writing perspective is bad. Also living in London it is quite hard for two reasons: one, many people are foreign, so a lot of what you hear is in another language; two, people are very often on their own so not talking; just thought of a three – three, the traffic and transport is so noisy unless you are sat next to people, it’s going to be very hard to hear things. I am going to work on this though. I’m doing it at work and that seems to be going well.
I’ve got all day Sunday this week to myself, so, hangover allowing, I’m going to do some serious work on this next assignment. I’ve done most of the magazine analysis and now need to write a magazine article. Scary. I know what I’m going to do it on. And know pretty much where it’s going to go, I just now need to do some research and interviews and stuff. I’ve just realised I know a couple of guys that I could speak to about this. Get a male perspective as well as a female one. Good work me!
