Writers block is a plague and I'm infected. Hi, I'm Araw. I'm sixteen and I call myself I writer.
Okay, so I decided to start on a new collection of pieces called "Finishing School" loosely based on the setting of Picnic at Hanging Rock, which is a colonial finishing school. If you don't know, a finishing school, also called a charm school, is a place where young women are taught the ways of higher society and are trained to be desirable for marriage. Back in the day, they were pretty brutal place, so I chose them as a setting for these pieces, which centres on the institutionalized oppression of women during that time. This work is about a student of such a school, her love for another student, and how she views the things she is taught.
