Well, there goes my future career as a writer

Or... The Continuing Tales of Ness and Her Decision to Take a Creative Writing Course.

(mock soap opera announcer voice)
We last left Ness as she was mulling over the idea of taking a Creative Writing course...

(Me): Gee, maybe I should decide what courses I need to take for the next year. I'll just head over to the university's website. Let's see... Oooh, more Chinese! A Canadian animation class? I get to watch cartoons for credit? I'm taking that class! Greek and Roman characters in myth? I liked the last mythology class I took. And what about that Creative Writing course that I was interested in... (gasp) What's this? The class is being held at the university's urban campus? (pause) Where the hell is that? (a Goggle search later) It's in the east end of the city? But transit doesn't run there. And the class is at night. Curse you, Creative Writing course! Now I'll never be a writer!! Eh? What's this? Music History; "The Music of Led Zepplin"? Well, that's better than nothing...

(to be continued...)
So yeah, turns out I would have to go to the urban campus if I want to take the course and the transit system doesn't go there directly. Plus, night time and unfamiliar part of the city equals potential danger. So there goes the dream of becoming a famous writer. Or at least of being a really obscure one who ends up bitter .

But that Led Zepplin course sounds interesting even if I don't like the band. It has more potential than some of the other courses the department is offering. And who knows, I might learning something profound while listening to some heavy metal or whatever genre Led Zepplin is.

You dont' like Led Zepplin! *is crushed*

Oh well, nobody's perfect ;o>

I'm slow on my replies, so I see that you've already changed your mind, so I'll say "that's too bad" followed immediately by "Yay that's great" *G* Sonds like some really cool courses... way better than when I was in school... *grumble grumble*

Life is so unfair *G*

A creative writing course will only help you if you've already got talent, it won't teach you to be a good writer.
If you're already a good writer then write stuff and send it to agents. You'll get better through practice and agents are always willing to make a buck of people with talent.

Mythology course sounds good though, and who doesn't like cartoons!

OTOH, the Creative Writing class could have killed any creativity you started out with. It's been known to happen. *eg*

Best of luck with the Led Zepplin course. *g*
