Hello everyone I am new here. I am from Australia and am currently in Grade 12. I didn't really know what I wanted to do after I left school until the beginning of this year. What it came down to is what I enjoy most? And I decided it was writing. So I finally decided that I would love to be a journalist. Hopefully I am able to work hard these last few months at school and achieve the grades I need. Another aspect of writing that has recently caught by eye has been screenwriting. I am an avid lover of both Film and Television. If it's a good story I am usually sunk right in. As I enjoy a good film or television production, I recently acquired a greater appreciation towards the behind the scenes action of both film and television. Writing a screenplay would also be a great thing to do and something I am looking forward to have a go at even though (hopefully) progressing through my education I am able to be placed into a journalism course. I must admit I really enjoy Television series, somewhat moreso than I do films as I feel the relationship and emotional engagement the audience builds with the character's throughout their many seasons on the television screen can be really powerful. Some of my favourite television shows have been LOST, 24, Mad Men, NCIS and (too many more to name) Hopefully I am able to gather some great tips from this forum! I am looking forward to my future experiences writing!
