Research Methods Module Week 9

Achievements this week:

  • Did some plot development in terms of per chapter in detail. Also worked on back story of Carla's Dad/Mr. East/ Mo (Lord Puff) 
  • Put Jack, Carla and Freddie into a situation where they just arrive at mayhem marsh, to see how each of them reacts.
  • Week-long diary for Jack 
  • Started putting together ideas about the main characters' accents and mannerisms
  • Developed some ideas for a more simple dissertation question

  • Finished The Secret Garden, Frances Hodgson Burnett
  • Started reading Divergent, Veronica Roth


I tried to start playing World of Warcraft, but it went terribly due to me not having a clue what to do, and my computer being unsupportive.
Watched The Secret Garden to see how Dickon speaks. 

Plans for next week:

  • Finish reading Divergent 
  • Stop reading so many fiction books and focus on other things! 
  • Find a fantasy game for children that I can actually successfully have a go at! 
  • Look at some websites of childrens authors - Roald Dahl and Jacqueline Wilson spring to mind- to see how they appeal to kids.  
  • Finish the plot plan first draft  
  • Read more of A Writers Guide to Harry Potter 
  • Freewriting, focusing on trying out the voice and pace of the story, as well as the character voices
  • Email some possible dissertation questions to tutors.
