Below is a piece of work I did two years ago, it was the first piece I did in the first module of my screen writing class. It was a piece of writing in any form based on walking round a route in Preston that the teacher designated.

In other news, my lessons at University have started back up and the writing exercises will commence again, meaning I will be generating content for University which I can then begin to upload here, as always any feedback on certain pieces of work is more than welcome if you ever have the time to read through it and suggest anything.
Again, thank you to all my followers it’s you and my love of writing which keeps me coming back to the blog and posting things!
