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!
