This idea

So I've been toying with the idea of changing my major to creative writing, but I don't want a repeat of my last major. (You don't know what happened with my last major? EPIC FAIL! On my part, not yours for not knowing)

Well I had this idea as I was driving home from Logan last night, but I'm not sure how successful it will be because I only have like three people who follow my blog. That's ok though! Because I have a backup plan if this one flops. Look at me, making plans and such like a real adult, whoop whoop!

Here's the idea: In the comments section, post a request for a short story you would like me to write (kind of like Shannon's bedtime story). You can be as specific or vague as you like, but if you could write something more than "I would like a story", that would be great! I'll then write you a story and post it on my blog in a timely manner for your enjoyment.

The logic behind this idea? If I want to be a writer, I'll be having to deal with deadlines, writer's block, critics, etc. And I figure this will kind of give me a small taste as to whether or not I'm cut out for it. At this point, I do love writing, but that's easy to say when you're just writing for yourself and for fun. If I throw some pressure into the equation and I can still say I love it, well hello English Major.


  1. Oh my goodness! I think writing would be great for you! You especially have the creative skills. You could even write like a whole series about zombie/ninja wars. :)
    I'm so lacking on the creative side that I can't even think of a topic to give you. But if you ever get the big bucks for creating a zombie/ninjas at war series, I would like to be part of your "special thanks" section.
    but ummm....topic, topic, who's got the topic?
    i'll get back to you on that.

  2. I already know you can write about zombies and ninjas. You're really into fantasy and action type things. So how bout something a little more challenging...something you don't like so much. Write a romance. You can add action and fantasy if you'd like. But make it at least a little romantic. No zombies or ninjas. Muahahahahahahahahahahaha!
