I Know Where I’m Going!
In the last blog I looked at biographies — one form of recount. Here, we turn to personal recounts, a first person version of events. The recount I have in mind here is quite simple really — a journey: from A to B with some curious milestones along the way. This might allow for greater variety of verb forms — the simple past placing your reader back in time, and then some use of present participles and other forms to comment on what is happening around the protagonist.
It might, though, have greater urgency and immediacy if written in the present tense, perhaps in a breathless, sweaty voice as the quest unfolds. It might be a diary entry. It might be the feverish commentary of our anxious hero. Informed choice and all that.

Although I am moving swiftly towards the books — always towards the books — I just need to gather myself and offer up a measure of caution. Have the children been primed to write with confidence and healthy abandon? They will have written recounts of one form or another throughout their primary schooling, but some revision, modelling and practising of key features will make all the difference.

The Errand is the main driver for this blog. I am so glad I did. This is a book I might use to support recount writing from year 2 upwards. Take note of the sentence forms and the supporting detail that guides and clarifies each step. We would also be refreshing our memories of some of the codes and conventions of the world of fairies, fables and fantasy. This next page is close to perfect as a bridge into our second text.
We are no longer in Puss in Boots territory. It is darker than Instructions. Once again the text is written in the second person, urging us on, issuing barely reassuring guidance.

I Know Where I'm Going! (film) - Wikipedia
Joan manages to bribe young Kenny Murdo Morrison into attempting it by offering him enough money to buy a half share in Ruairidh's boat and marry Ruairidh's daughter Bridie Margot Fitzsimons. Torquil learns of the scheme and tries to talk Joan out of it, but she proves adamant and they have a blazing row. After Joan has gone down to the boat, Catriona tells MacNeil that Joan is actually running away from him.
Armed with this knowledge, he races to the quayside and invites himself aboard. The boat's engine gets flooded and they are caught in the Corryvreckan whirlpool , but Torquil is able to restart the motor just in time and they return safely to Mull. At last, the weather clears. Joan asks Torquil for a parting kiss before they go their separate ways. Torquil enters Moy Castle, and the curse takes effect almost immediately. A narrator relates that, centuries earlier, Torquil's ancestor had stormed the castle to capture his unfaithful wife and her lover.
He had them bound together and cast into a water-filled dungeon with only a small stone to stand upon. When their strength gave out, they dragged each other into the water, but not before she placed a curse on the Lairds of Kiloran. Any who dared to step over the threshold would be chained to a woman to the end of his days. From the battlements , Torquil sees Joan with three pipers marching resolutely toward him. They embrace.
Powell and Pressburger wanted to make A Matter of Life and Death but filming was held up because they wanted to do the film in colour and there was a shortage of color cameras. Pressburger suggested that instead they make a film which was part of the "crusade against materialism", a theme they had tackled in The Canterbury Tale , only in a more accessible romantic comedy format.
The story was originally called The Misty Island. Pressburger wanted to make a film about a girl who wants to get to an island, but by the end of the film she no longer wants to go there. Powell suggested an island on the west coast of Scotland. He and Pressburger spent several weeks researching locations then decided on the Isle of Mull. Pressburger wrote the screenplay in four days.
The movie was originally meant to star Deborah Kerr and James Mason. Six weeks before filming Mason pulled out of the movie saying he did not want to go on location. Roger Livesey read the script and asked to play the role. Powell thought he was too old and portly but Livesey lost 20 kilos and changed his appearance.
