Firstly, a huge thank you to everyone who offered words of advice to my post last week, Do I Really Need A Creative Writing Qualification? Your views kind of confirmed what i already knew deep down…i don’t need one, as such, but if i ever wanted to teach creative writing it would be a good idea. Other than that i could probably get what I’m looking for in other courses but i still think it would look good on my CV 😉
So i’ll do what i normally do with these types of quandaries…i’ll stick it on the top shelf, let it gather dust for a bit then take it down in about a years time when I’m spring cleaning *sniggers*
In the meantime, I’m trying to move forward…
Thanks to DayDreaming In Words i ordered the OU books and rummaged through my collection of Creative Writing books in search of something i could “study” until they arrived.
And i came across this baby on my shelf…
I have so many books on creative writing, i think its about time i started reading them lol. I need to set aside some time every day to work on my writing. I can’t sit here and moan that my writing is crap all the time. Like anything in life, if you want to be better at it you have to study, work and learn 🙂
So i’ll spend some time going through this book before i start the OU ones (because they look scary! lol) and see just how
hard easy it is to “study” Creative Writing on your own.
I will of course share any golden nuggets of information or pure flashes of genius as and when i come across them 😉
And now…im going in…wish me luck!
Because i really don’t need any more Creative Writing books (but i love them anyway) is there a book you’ve worked through that you thought really helped you? Recommend me a book on Creative Writing 🙂
