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.

Ginger: I like the idea behind this; the idea and story itself are great, However, I'm finding typos periodically and some of the sentences could be worded a bit more clearly. You might want to 'show' a little more than you 'tell,'

devinneyabby08: This book was amazing. I read a lot of books and most thrillers never really thrill me, but this one succeeded in doing so and beyond! I was definitely fooled about the plot! Some stories on Inkitt are really weird but this one is by far my favorite!
