Earlier this semester I chose to write one of my English writing folio creative pieces on how how 'I Got You' was written, and the launch of Neil Finn's musical career. I blended fictional narrative and some biographical facts about Neil, Split Enz and Crowded House to create the piece. I got it back today, and I got full marks for it! It's worth quite a big percentage of my Year 12 English study score too, so thanks Neil, for giving me the inspiration to write this piece! Big Grin
Don't know why I thought I'd tell you all, but there you go. I'd type the piece up and post it if anyone would like to read it.

Wish I'd thought of writing about Neil during my Year 11 Advanced English studies back a few years ago instead of struggling to put a character based upon Neil in a fictional novel now. Roll Eyes Wink
Way to go dream date!Big Grin
Ahem, may I remind the original poster about the rules for this forum (see the top of the subforum main page):
Whatever you have done, here is where you shall not be afraid to show your work!

So... you know what to do (and in case you haven't noticed: yes, I would love to read it, too)!
Something Like that has happened to me aswell. Last Year in english we had to do a speech on a person who i look up to. Well of course i didn't write anything so i choose to do Neil & all my classmates were saying who's Neil Finn i laughed at them, I just said what i knew about him & i passed!! Big Grin
My turn! My turn! for my second creative writing piece for my Yr 12 English assessment, I wrote a review on Together Alone, and got an A+ for it! 32 out of 35!!!! I'd post it, but in review terms it's incredibly boring, and I can't get it back from my teacher anyway
Thats great! Smiler

For the creative writing section of the HSC I wrote about how some of Neil's songs were influenced by fan's in different places eg. Mean To Me.
I loved writing it and I hope that I did ok, we will see when I get the results back. Wink
