Paper Writing Season

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.
