Say What?

I want to take more English classes at school.  More specifically, writing courses.  Since we all know I have the patience of a flea, ok a gnat, I’ve decided to take a class on freelance writing.

I suppose I would be interested in writing a column, or just submitting articles to a paper or magazine, but what?  Am I like Erma Bombeck on crack?  What kind of writing do you see coming from me?  I just don’t know what direction to go and I’m asking you, my faithful 2.76 readers, to give me advice.

I don’t have dreams of grandeur.  I don’t picture myself becoming some great author that’s on Oprah’s Book Club.  Mostly because I don’t like Oprah, but also because if I were on her show it would mean something I’m not sure how to put into words but it’s something I wouldn’t like.  Sellout?  I don’t know, but for those of you who also don’t like her I think you know what I’m talking about.

Also, I don’t really want to write stories.  Anything more than 3-4 pages double-spaced is just too much work!

Ok.  Feel free to comment about how fabulous I am now.

  1. You are fabulous – but you already knew that. I’ve been wondering similar things about writing lately. I lose momentum part way into a project and then fight to get it back. Magazines and newspapers are a good way to go. One of my favorite college professors had a newspaper column that I used to read faithfully – way back when I still got the newspaper. I don’t know how you go about getting one of those but you could do a great job at it.

  2. GO FOR IT!!!! And yes, you are fabulous. Wish i could have been there this weekend but now the course is set and I am determined!!!

  3. I see you writing a tell it like it is column in the newspaper. Filled with funny observations and pithy comments! I think you’d be FAB at it!

    I suck at writing. I have no imagination! My husband’s the writer at our house!

  4. It sounds like a fun course. I have no suggestions for you, just thought I’d chime in about Oprah. I hate her too!! She is SOOOO annoying. She thinks that EVERY WORD SHE SAYS has some kind of deep meaning and we should all be taking notes. Thank you for letting me vent.
