Creative Writing

I did it! I signed up for a Creative Writing course! This is something I had been wanting to do for quite a while now so I am glad I made the call and enrolled. I guess this is going to mean more writing on paper and less on the blog (for a while atleast). It's a busy time right now and I didn't think I would be able to make time for this course, but with a little juggling I managed to rearrange my schedule at the hospital so that it frees time up for the program.

CONGRATULATIONS Lotus!!! If anyone will make a wonderful 'Creative Writer', it'll be YOU!! You've definitely got the talent, the desire, and a wonderful command of the english language!

Woo-hoooo!! Way to go! Keep us posted.

Awww, Melissa, thank you so much! I would share but who knows what my pen will reveal once it gets going - this is a "G" rated blog after all! ;)

Thanks, guinessgirl...I am very excited!!!

Thank you so much, bookbaglady, for your encouraging comment. I don't know about my command on the English language - I know I can't seem to shed the Indo-Anglian colloqialisms, but I am trying! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Lotus, I daresay you'd be pretty cool with non-fiction, journals, memories etc since you are so clever with book reviews.
I think your English is exemplary.
Do you have the option to choose a field like children's or a play?
Perhaps you could write romance & that's a delicious thought.
I also think you'd be pretty good at writing out documentary or docu-drama film scripts on social issues as you are able to lay out arguments very nicely.
I hope you won't stop blogging less. Otherwise, I shall miss you.

Hi, Susan! Thanks very much for the support and encouragement; it is so good of you to stop by. I think you've judged me well, in that, media writing is probably more my style than creative writing, but as I have to start somewhere, I thought I'd take the plunge with creative. Having never done a writing course before, I don't know what to expect. I don't even know if we write on paper or word processors! :) It's all very new to me!

I enjoy reading about your experiences as a writer - I think all of that, combined with my love of reading, has promoted an interest in the craft of writing. So, thank you! :)

That's fantastic, Lotus! Enjoy your writing where ever it takes you to whether on paper or keyboard. I can only write on computers these days.

wow!!! writing is so fun! i would love to take that. I miss writing. i really shoulda been an english major, i don't know what i'm doing in the science field hahah. Perhaps this can be a creative "typing" class and you can type up your assignments, that way you can post them on here too. yea i'm selfish as heck muhaha

Lotus Reads said...

Great to see you here again, sruthi! Hope you've been up to a lot of mischief while on hiatus? :)

I feel the same way as you - why, oh why, did I pick science to major in over English lit.? Ahhh, wait, maybe there is a job for us out there---we can write science text books! Ok, maybe not. I'll have to think of something else! :)
