My LA class doesn’t participate in too much Creative Writing, and it dissapoints me, a lot. That’s something I can’t hide. I’ve been reassured that at some point we have a creative writing unit in LA, but until then, what am I supposed to do? I find it unfortunate that the only places I can really write are in my club called The Locker and on this blog. I absolutely love my school, it is really a great community to share writing with, but the main priorities come off as Maths and Sciences. Yet, that doesn’t fit for many people.
Creative Writing is so important. I know a few people who write to express their feelings, good and bad. Some people write what they cannot read. So, if you’re looking for a story about the vegetarian dinosaur who eats at an all meat buffet, you may have to write it. That’s not always a bad thing. It just gives more opportunities to write something without it being pretty much, well, plagerism.
Even if you don’t like to read, you could still write, just give it a try. Though Creative Writing is different than Writing, itself, it comes in many forms. Poems, Short Stories, a novella, even maybe writing song lyrics.
Face it, writing is important. Like it or not, try it.
