MY STORY TO TELL!!!!!!!!!

When I first fell in love with media studies(film,tv) it was my
love for writing that drew me to the profession. I
wanted to weave words together in such a way
that they would paint a beautiful image that
would remain vivid in the imagination of the
reader. I still dream of that and in fact, I still dream of writing
novels about real people and
real stories that are yet to be explored. My second love is the radio.
To quote Beyoncé
yet again (with my own arrangement of her
lyrics): “I fell in love with my stereo and it never
let me down”. It was back at those days when I fell
for that seat behind a microphone and the
intimate interaction between me and the listener. This was however, in
the commercial music radio
form and it wasn’t until I studied film,and tv that I
really started to engage with talk radio. It’s funny,
when I did my short stint at VoW FM (Voice of
Wits), one of the critisms I received often, was
that my audio was a little “too serious” for day time campus radio. I
think I had developed a
knack for telling the stories about the real issues
that affected me and my surroundings. I wanted
to get people thinking. Of course while I was studying my honours I got
too busy and I had to give up on VoW and at the
same time, I got sidetracked by the glitz and
glamour of television. Don’t get me wrong I still
want to sharpen my video editing skills and
video production but something drew me to audio again this year when
we had to choose our
main streams. Today we had our first class of boot camp audio
class. We listened to some amazing audio clips
from NPR – A public radio station which is well
known for its great long form radio features and
storytelling. This form is something we do not
have in SA which, I found to be so beautifully done. I fell in love
with the radio all over again.

A few missing periods, and a few missing ending quotation marks, but not enough to take away from the story.Keep going. Add more detail to your future stories and ...

I'll definitely tell my friends that it isn't just a book for the ladies.. Those murder scenes were very clever and the whole st...

Emma Tonner: This book was amaazzziiinnggggg I couldn’t get enough and the pages basically turned themselves. Cat is living life as a normal girl when all of a sudden she finds out she’s royalty! What I wouldn’t give!

Sammy Styles: It is one of those stories that keeps you on the hook till the last moment. A roll of pictures were piling up and with continuous moving, it was like I was watching a film. The scenes were dramatic with a bit of every emotion. The story contains every essence of mystery, romance and adventur...

NancyRichFoster: This story had me from the first chapter to the very last! The twists and turns, and suspense had me guessing to the very end! This was a great job by a great author!

Nishant Jain: I felt as if i am watching a movie,not reading a book. The story was definitely interesting. It was more of action than horror for me. There are a few grammatical and spelling errors I came across and at times I found it difficult to imagine some things which the author is trying to convey, but o...

danijelstoilkovic: I really like this story. The characters, the mysteries, that bonding in the end, but I would really like to see what happened next. Is there a second part? And this would really be one cool horror movie and if I was the director, I wouldn't change a thing.It's awesome!

Warren Bull: I thought this was a fast=paced thriller with elements of several other genres woven seamlessly in. It hooked me early and held my attention throughout. I liked the humor and surprises along the way. I really enjoyed the novel. I am not a big fan of romances or paranormal works,but when those ele...

Ali Albazaz: I started reading "Caged" few hours ago and I'm on chapter 7 now. Caged is definitely one of the most addictive stories I've ever read. Thank you so much for writing this novel.

FixieGirl: This is a good story so far. Most of the stories I've read, the earth kids are brought to the fantasy world but why not the opposite? I promised I'd read this on fanfiction and I'm impressed. I will be happy if you continue.
