Hello! My name is Jill and I'm a creative writing student. My forte is in the realistic fiction world, and I like to add a bit of a dark twist when I can.
I used to be a film student, but I decided to leave the area because going to my film classes started to make me irrationally angry, and that wasn't okay. But I think my film oriented brain helps me when it comes to creating stories. Oftentimes, I imagine what I'm writing as if it were on a screen; short films are the way my mind works, so I tend to stick with short stories. Although, it is a lot easier to imagine the angles of the cameras than it is to write out a shot list. That, and I love a good rack focus, but I'm not sure how to get that across with the written word, so yeah, maybe switiching to the writing world was a good choice for me. The world of film is still a huge part of my being, and I hope to bring that into my future career. Who knows, maybe I'll be a film critic one day. I do always have a strong opinion for the movies I watch, and discussing the success of a new film with the people around me is always something I love to do.
I got to see A Quiet Place last week, and I thought that it was very creative. I had some big issues with some of the continuity of the monsters, but those are mminor details. I am looking forward to Hereditary to come out in June. Hopefully these are going to be some quality horror movies.
I learned a lot in this class. It really opened my eyes when it comes to digital writing, and using a digital format as a platform to publish writing. As somebody that does not like being on the internet unless it is for YouTube or Google Translate, I have learned a lot about blogs and hyperlinks and Twine.
My final project is included in the first link below. It will appear at first to be very similar to my second project, however there are significant changes in the speaker's notes.
Thank you for spending some of your time reading my work. It means a lot to me!
