Well… then I’ll write something this week and we shall exchange short stories! I don’t have professors like you do. My major is a big supporter of “do what everyone else is doing.”
lol whats your major?
The great benefit to studying creative writing is that everybody has a different approach to writing, so it’s nice to get so many fresh ideas (never with your own writing, of course).
Technically I’m an English major, so I spend most of my time writing very english-majory-analytical novels…lol.
When I do write short stories or flash fiction, they’re usually historical fiction, with the exception of a few. I really love History too, but I could never write a novel like that because there’s a lack of opportunity present when you work with earthly limitations. It’s probably why I spend so much time making up new worlds to explore that aren’t this one. Morality and ethics get thrown out the window when you make up your own rules.
I am excited to exchange stories with you!
