... alrighty then. I got drawn in all over again. Second level Creative Writing here I come. At least, working at the OU, I get to use the fee waiver ...

Have fun, its an interesting course and why not I say, especially as you can use the fee waiver - wish I had that option, my purse is feeling quite light having just paid for the first part of the English MA!

So how did it go klarusu? I'm just catching up with all these OU threads having just signed up for the English MA (would love to hear how you found it, riverwillow). I'm another addict - did the BA Hons with OU and have been dying to get back here for years.

I'm considering the MA too, booksloth. Not this year though, you'll have to let me know what you think. It's a timely post - I'm just finishing up my ECA which has to be at Walton Hall by tomorrow lunchtime. Wasn't supposed to be this last minute but I've had a bad encounter with a bout of norovirus this week. Loved the Creative Writing course - aced the cousework with a 95 average but I think the ECA might suffer from lack of attention this week. Them's the breaks. I would definitely recommend the course though.

I obviously have a whole new language to learn too! What is an ECA? Anything like a TMA was in 'my day'? Sorry to hear you've been poorly but you've done fantastically well with your coursework so far so at least you don't have to worry. Do you have an exam with this course? I'll definitely keep you informed as to how the MA goes (whether you want me to or not - can't stop chirrupping (sp?) about it right now).

Oh, ECA is the end of course exam-substitute assignment. You don't have an exam with the Creative Writing course but the final assignment counts the same way an exam does so this one's going to define my grade. I'm not that worried because I really did this course to get me back into the writing habit and it's been so good. The grade, for once, is not the big thing.

#6 Still nice if it's a good one, though. Good luck.
