Writing

Saturday, May 24, 2008

Last summer I took a writing course.  I felt like I was back in high school.  I could feel my hands get clammy as I walked into the building.  This lady genuinely believed her purpose in life was to educate others on how to write.  It appeared she was deeply passionate about it.  Passionate, yes, patient, no way.  She crucified everything we handed in.  She berated the whole world (Seriously, the whole world including Japan) for their lack of proficiency in sentence structure and conventions.  I am surprised we all stayed.  I think it was because the money was paid upfront and there were no returns.  I did learn a few things, however, but just not from her.  I learned from the other writers in my group.  We had our own side group of self teaching.  We discussed the importance of voice, unleashing creativity, and writing with our audience in mind.  So, all was not lost.

This summer, I am trying another course . . .
