World Lit 2- The "choice" one

Recommended Posts

OK, so I've just started working on my WLA 2, the one where you can basically do anything. What I want to do, or at least have started doing, is rewriting a part of The Tin Flute, but from the perspective of Yvonne, one the the minor characters. I want to know, first of all, whether I can do that, and, secondy, whether I have to have an explanation for the commposition following it? I really need to know for the length. I've heard something about a "statement of intent" but I have no idea what that really means or includes.

Yes you can do that.

No but you have to have an explanation preceding it. This is your statement of intent. In the statement of intent, you have to tell the examiner why you are approaching the WL assignment this way, what you're trying to achieve with this piece of writing, why you've chosen this particular scene/character etc. The statement of intent is supposed to be less than 500 words. The whole WLA - "essay" and statement of intent - are 1500 words in total.

Usually you only would do an in-depth analysis of what you've written if a) you wrote a poem that's quite short or B) you wrote a diary entry - which accoridng to criteria require an analysis. The statement of intent isn't really an analysis, it's an brief explanation of what your intention - duh - is in writing this piece.

Comprends? :P

They do give you a bit of leeway though and you can go up to 150 words over or under the word limit. Also, the length of your statement of intent depends on the length of your creativity part too. If the creativity part is a small poem then you statement of intent must be longer and vis versa.

Hope that helps and good luck!
