A Chance of.... Fate?

By Claire Enos

It was a chance of fate. Or at least, that's what my friends would say. Those who don't have the same beliefs I do. I decided to sign up for Advanced Creative Writing for the following semester. A friend told me they'd signed up already, and told me which class so I decided to sign up as well. We were already all signed up and everything before we realized that the class happened to be Creative Non-Fiction Writing. We were not pleased. We write fiction, not non-fiction.

Honestly, I'm glad we made such a simple mistake. We got the teacher we wanted and we get to learn something that we didn't realize was such a good thing to know.

Yesterday, I was trying to decide what to post, when I realized exactly what my Creative Non-Fiction Writing class has taught me so far. Because of that class, I now have a better idea of how to write non-fiction that is interesting to read, and fun to write. I would definitely recommend taking a creative non-fiction writing class to anyone who aspires to be a writer. It helps with blog writing, and with overall writing skills as well.

So, if you ever get the chance, definitely take a creative non-fiction writing class! I guarantee you'll love it, or at the very least learn something from it that will help with your writing!

Have a great week!

    1. You're welcome! It's a lot of fun! I will have to take one on writing narrative biographies eventually. Taking a Family History Research class and that could be helpful in family history research!

    1. Thanks! It's a lot of fun, all my classmates agree. None of them wanted to take Creative Non-fiction, but we all really enjoy it.

  3. Creative nonfiction is just as creative as fiction, I think. It's wonderfully inventive and teaches you to tap into your heart. I agree. PLUS maybe you can take the class you originally wanted another time, and then you can benefit from both!

    1. It is, definitely. I've had a lot of fun messing around with stories from my life and writing them down. I will eventually take an advanced creative fiction writing class, I have to for my major, but until then this is a lot of fun!
