how literally did you guys use the creative writing stimulus? I chose image 1 (boy swinging on a tree branch). My story involved the idea of youth and ageing and included bits of kids playing in a playground, but I'm not sure the image was particularly "central" to my story. I interpreted it metaphorically, but hopefully thats ok.
Same...I hope that the markers realise that my story was based on Image 1 :speechless:

For the creative, I chose the picture of the women in the 'cafe' yet interpreted the photo to represent communication and expressing oneself. My story was about a women who had a stroke and henceforth became paralysed. It explored how the incident and her inability to speak caused her children to view her as an 'empty shell' and that her only friend was her carer. specific lines i used where 'nothing but a broken moan from a broken women and 'its difficult to communicate when fate steels your speech away' but there were others which alluded to her despair at her state. I'm just worried that i didnt link it to the question/stimulus enough because i took the concept of speech rather then a women chatting in a cafe. Thoughts? did i mess it up?

I thought the AOS wasn't to bad. But what stumped me was the creative because I couldn't adapt my planned creative to it... the questions and the essay were okay. Just the creative got me...
