Hello! Well, to put it simply I'm stuck.
I am doing AS level English Language, and I'm confused on how to write my commentary for my creative writing. I just... don't know how to start it. Or what to include. Me, being the stupid person that I am, have lost my sheet with the linguistic features which I have to highlight in my story and explain. Gaah.
D:
I'd be very greatful if you helped. :] In fact, I'd love you forever.
Also, Do you know where I could find an example of a commentary? (For a story?)

Thank you!

You want to structure your commentary systematically, using the frameworks. You need to show how you've crafted the piece to accommodate for the GASP (Genre Audience Subject Purpose). I can send you my commentary, if you like. I achieved 87/90 in the coursework.

To put it simply, a commentary is a piece of work in which you need to discuss the decisions you made while writing your creative piece. For example what influenced you on the story or plot, in the characters too. Also you need to talk about linguistic devices (if you've used any, say why not if you haven't) and things like form, structure and language. Things like mood and tone are also important things to talk about, as well a potential reader's interpretation of what you've written. If you need any more info, quote me in your reply.

I would be incredibly interested in seeing that piece of work. I know is has been a while since this post was made. But still, if you happen to come back across this please contact me

Hi, I know it's been ages since this was posted and it's likely you don't have it anymore, but could you maybe give me some tips on how to write mine? I came into the course a few weeks late (I originally started lang/lit) and I'm trying to catch up with everyone else. Thanks
