Alas! Some time to write. I've been super super busy lately. I think I over-anticipated exactly how much free time I would have before I took up the Creative Writing classes at UofT, kickboxing, dance, wall-climbing and the stuff in between that I promise to do and that I need to do.
I guess I am getting what I paid for, literally. I feel awful, too, because I am not putting as much effort as I should be for my Creative Writing classes. I have a manuscript due next weekend and I haven't the faintest idea how to start. I don't even have time to start!! Suggestions are welcome.
The first ingredient to a story is a theme. A theme is like a moral, or something that is learned or realized by the end of the story. Ever since I could remember, that's always been the hardest part for me in writing. Second to writing the conclusion, of course. *sigh.
How cliché of me would it be to take stories out of my own life? I mean, I think it's as interesting as TV, like The Hills, why not a book?
I could be the main character, and use a pseudonym, of course. The setting? Hm, how about a non-descript suburb in Canada, possibly near Toronto?
Now for a theme. Problem is, sad as it sounds, I haven't really learned anything. Really.
