“I just wouldn’t know where to start. I wouldn’t know what to write about.”

WHAT. I’ve heard this so many times from people who profess to being really interested in writing something: a short story, a play, a novel. I try to hide my incredulity but… You. Have. Got. To. Be. Kidding. Everyone’s got a hundred stories in them – at least!

Good reasons to study Creative Writing

Good art often takes patience and determination. It can even be gruelling, maddening, and heartbreaking. When we neglect skill, we can toil for a lifetime and remain mediocre.

It’s true that people have inclinations and abilities in specific areas, but everyone has the potential to be better.
