It’s paper-writing season again, unfortunately, and I’m stuck until Tuesday evening with a prompt asking me to compare the representations of leaders in “The Queen” and “Gandhi,” focusing specifically on cinematography.
I don’t mind writing about films.
What I do mind is the fact that as I’ve only seen Gandhi a few times and am not overly familiar with it, I’ll likely need to rewatch the entire three hours in order to write this particular paper.
In other news, I got an A on my story. The workshoppers were kind, although they pointed out something I would never have caught on my own: that my opening paragraphs make my protagonist sound like a prostitute. Whoops.
