  3. Hi I’ve registered for A230 and just upon looking for examples of past year assignments i stumbled across your blog, and you’ve taken a lot of the same courses as me 🙂 was wondering if you could give me a peek at the tmas you had to do, i assume they change the questions yearly? Also, two literature modules at once, aghhhh busy busy i admire you, i did overlap creative writing with intermediate spanish and it nearly crippled me! anyway, keep up the blogging, it’s nice to read!

    • Yes they do change the tma questions each year, have you got an email address and I’ll send some over. (Just leave it in the comments and I won’t approve it, this way nobody else will see)

  4. i love your reading lists too, something to inspire, of mice and men is one of my favourite ever books. wizard of oz is great, though i couldn’t get into all of the oz sequels! have you finished with the OU now or still going?
