Creative Writing Class  
Back in February, I posted this story (completely unrelated to fandom) that I wrote for my Creative Writing class. All of us in the class had to write a short story, then critique them during class. When we drew numbers to determine the order in which our stories would be discussed, I was #8 of the 9 of us in the class.

Today was my day to find out what the Guys in my class thought. Mostly, they said it was boring, nothing happened, and there were too many characters to keep track of. Hmmm..... Okay.

And that was pretty much it. Their stories, as you can imagine, were all full of killing and maiming and bloodshed. My contains none of that. Nor does it contain typographical errors on the scale of theirs, which I know it's not a contest but Spring is in full bloom here and I have a headache that could fell an elephant so, yeah, I'm cranky.

I'm not very nice when I'm cranky. And I'm sorry.
Current Mood: cranky

On my phone so I can't write much, but...consider the source. Don't put too much emphasis on their opinions. And feel better soon! ::huggles;;

I know they aren't exactly the experts in what is and is not "good writing" but still.

Allergies are still kicking my butt. The joys of spring!! This too shall pass.

They don't have a clue, bb. Hope you feel better soon.

They are minus a clue. They are in clue deficit. Which is fine. I know I don't need to worry about what they think. But I do need to be protective of all of my characters!

Thank you so much!!

Don't worry about what they said, if their errors and bloodshed and maiming are anything to go by. Yours sounded completely different from that, which can only be a good thing. I know I enjoyed it anyway. *hugs* Hope the headache is gone soon.

Thank you so much!!! It was completely different from what they thought was appropriate. BOYS. What can you do? Can't live with them. Can't kill them.

Allergies are still winning but I'm hoping to turn the corner, given enough allergy meds. If I can stay awake after taking them!!

Thanks so much. (Love your icon. I love writing with fountain pens!)
