Creative Writing

quillJuliette and I attended the first night of the creative writing night course we are taking at Sheridan College in Oakville. We were both looking forward to the course, but I wasn’t sure what to expect. On one hand, I have taken college courses in the past that were at such a low level that they left me bored. On the other hand, lately, I have been feeling like I don’t have a creative thought in my head anymore.

Both of my fears were unfounded. The three hours of the course passed quickly as learned new techniques to stimulate our creativity and worked through several writing exercises. It turns out that I am not as uncreative as I had feared and that there is stuff up there in my head. I just need to learn how to tap into it and practice. By the end of the night, I was amazed at what was coming out of me and began remembering how much fun it can be to write.
