Reviewing peer stories for Creative Writing class. Everyone is so god damn depressing.
Me: "Okay, I'm going to read this next story. How long will it take for me to find the depressing bomb shell?"
*five minutes in*
Me: "TEN YEAR OLD GIRL BEING RAPED BY HER FATHER! FOUND THE BOMB SHELL! YAY!"
I mean, my story wasn't made of sunshine and daisies or anything, but jesus, grimmest of the fucking grim, here.
And a sorceress that couldn't get married because she kept killing her boring suitors.
And a story about a house sold by the devil.
...Man, your classes suck. We had depressing shit too but damn even I take a break from all that 'deep' stuff.
Unfortunately, we're not allow to write 'GENRE' stories in this class, so I can't do anything supernatural. Mine was on a girl in a hospital waiting room, worrying about whether her two closest friends were going to walk out alive from surgery after an accident.
Once again public authority is trying to sabotage my Hattori campaigns.
What did I ever do to you?! *shakes fist*
awesome, i got an invite from youtube to start getting money from advertisements on my videos!
the only problem is that my field of work is mostly amvs and other copyrighted stuff, so i don't have many valid videos to submit.
there's only one thing for it, i'm going to start making webcam videos!
reviews/rants/nonsense... whatever i decide on doing by the time i get a decent camera.
Don't worry, be happy~
Also, writing a ~20 page study paper without actually doing much studying beforehand proved out to be rather difficult. I don't recommend it to anyone. I am exhausted.
It's been a hard day's night, and I've been working like a dog. It's been a hard day's night, I should be sleeping like a log. But when I get home to you, I find the things that you do will make me feel alright. You know I feel alright, yeah.
That said, I can see a slight reasoning for not allowing genre: it's like going to art class without doing life drawings. Sure you get to do what you want but you don't 100% learn how to do the craft bare bones. My stuff, while fantastical in the grand scheme, has characters that could easily inhabit a non-genre setting and that's when my stories started improving.
It still sucks, but hey, at least you didn't get 20 Harry Potter knock offs in your class.
...Mine didn't either but it's probably the other reason why that rule is in place. Hopefully if you get to higher classes you'll be able to write the cool stuff you put up here.
Still, being the overkill, impish little bastard I was I'm surprised I got away with a story about a headless baby that I played only to make everyone go 'WTF?'
Oh God the looks on their faces! XD
...*Ahem* I have grown up from that now and if you get to take Creative Writing in college you should experience much more freedom.
I remember writing about my class being secretly a group of superheroes and our teachers were all villains. I remember one story where I wrote our English teacher as a giant mechanical cyborg of doom rampaging through our town (all two streets of it) and stuff... It was nothing but garbage, but the inside jokes were a riot.
Damn, I'm stupid XD
A Hattori campaigner never rests.
Y'see, all of this stuff about Creative Writing makes me really glad I've never taken a single Creative Writing class in my life. Especially if they frown on "Genre Stories."
I remember taking a creative writing class in 7th grade. I remember not learning much and that we had to write a journal everyday.
I also remember writing an essay about my role models (them being my sister and Eiichiro Oda) lol
Back home alone from my 10days holidays with my soulmate....
there we go again. 45days left *sighs*
