Creative writing 101

by Intermittent Rain ~ August 28th, 2010. Filed under: Thoughts about Writing.


I’ve registered for a continuing ed night school course in creative writing.

The class doesn’t start until the end of September but I’m looking forward to it. I expect it to be fairly basic, but basic is what I need to learn. I haven’t done creative writing that was reviewed since, oh, 9th grade or so. Any writing  for assignments since then has been either critical/analytical or research oriented during the rest of high school, college, university, grad school. Creativity is only in the choice of topic and choice of words.

I’m not entirely sure that I want to read my more raunchier erotica in the class. I do have options as I have a lot of romance/non-erotica material, but I plan to see what kind of people are in the class. If they’re all grandmothers writing their memoirs, maybe not.
