    Well, I thought I'd start a thread for people who had any questions concerning any aspect of IB.

    And because I am kind and generous (as well as clueless and lazy), I thought I'd start the ball rolling.

    Um. Regarding a creative World Lit Essay Two piece. The pastiche... How does one go about it? What comes before the actual pastiche? A justification? Explanation? Commentary on your piece? Do I need a title (as in essay topic for a pastiche)? And lastly, how many words does it have to be? For a drama piece, are the 'Estragon: / Vladimir: ' included in the word count? What about stage directions and discriptions?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am desperate and I offer cookies and amusement and possibly sexual favours. :P I'm planning to do a pastiche on Waiting For Godot but yes, the particulars? I'm not too sure.

    Thanks.

    For IB High Level English, we must write a world lit essay based on one of our WL texts. I've chosen Waiting for Godot, and have decided to write a pastiche. So just wondering exactly how I should go about it, and seeing as you've studied WfG, any suggestions as what I should write the pastiche on?

    As in what areas do you suggest I explore? And just basically what basically comes with the pastiche? Do I need to write a justification of some sort? A commentary on my own piece?

    Thanks again for offering to help, and so quickly at that.

    The pastiche is usually the most difficult choice... throwing away all high school arrogance, it's impossible. It's rather unjustly assuming to think that you can imitate Beckett's writing, wouldn't you think?
