Welp, after class this afternoon I'll be on my first weekend of the new school year. It's been so refreshing returning to the campus and seeing my friends and professors. My favorite class by far is my creative writing class. My professor for the course is a very experienced and accomplished writer, and she teaches us as a writing coach. Unlike other writing courses I've taken in the past, this one puts less emphasis on studying certain stories and much more emphasis on improving our own creative writing skills (it's not a literature course, as she put it). Another thing I really like about it is that there's only 7 students in the class including myself, meaning each of us will get plenty of personalized instruction. The only downside to the course is that I only have it on Monday. Ah well, she told us she's always available via e-mail.
This course is just what the doctor ordered. For a while now I've been trying to continue my own written stories but kept getting stuck. Now, however, I'm actually making headway on one particular story I dreamed up recently. The stories we're writing in the course are short stories, but my professor told me she'll allow me to write this one in multiple chapters across the semester if I write the first chapter well enough. So I'll be back with news on that when the time comes. Naturally I'll also be chronicling the story here on dA as each chapter is completed, for anyone who'd be interested. I'm not giving out any details on the story right now; you'll see when I post it.
