I am finishing up this class at MATC and I will prolly pass it with a B. I was thinking of re-applying at Edgewood and try to become a writer or play wright. What do you guys think?


Oh and before you even comment on the bad spelling I must tell you I am NNY420/Xanadu. It has been said and done that I suck at spelling.

I don't really know you, but why would you ever want to be a writer if you spell bad and know it? Especially when you don't care enough about your poor spelling to get a browser based spell checker or anything...

[edit] Yeah it looks like I'm trying to make fun of you here, but I'm not. I just am wondering why you would want to be a writer if you obviously lack a passion for the written language. [/edit]

I like writing out stories. Making things up. Yeah I spell bad but I realy just love making up stories and putting them on paper for others to read. This goes back to my thread about content v Spelling and grammer.

You should write sex stories. Incest sex stories, about mother and daughter. That would be fucking cool. I would buy your books.

I have written a few "romance" stories butI like mystery and sci fi alot better. The "romance" stories just end up me writing out parts of my life but changing the names.

You're never going to believe this, but yes, I think you should. Grammar and spelling can be learned, along with clarity and communication. You've got raw talent, but in order to convey your stories, you'll need some work.

I am wholeheartedly in favor of your taking as many classes as you need to meld your love for storytelling with the skills it will take you to engage your readers.

100% serious,

Go for it. Your spelling and grammar has improved dramatically since you started going here, and that's only a month or so.

Do what you'll be happy doing.
There was only one road back to L.A. US Interstate 15, just a flat-out high speed burn through Baker and Barstow and Berdoo, then on to the Hollywood Freeway straight into frantic oblivion: safety, obscurity. Just another freak in the Freak Kingdom. We'd gone in search of the American Dream. It had been a lame fuck around, a waste of time. My heart was filled with joy. I felt like a monster reincarnation of Horatio Alger: a man on the move, and just sick enough to be totally confident.

Go for it. Grammar and spelling can be learned in school; the quality and creativity of one's writing cannot. Plus, that's why we have spell-check and editors-- to help us correct insignificant writing mistakes.

I don't think you should. Why? Because everyone says that you should. Besides, you'll simply turn this adversity into motivation to succeed. Good luck! (You'll need it)

I don't get you really. You aren't spelling so bad now here, but in other threads you spell so badly it's laughable. Like Mojo said spelling can be learned, but you have to be willing to learn ya know? But you seem to have learned, so why did you spell so horribly before? Or did you already get a browser based spellcheck heh.

I don't know how good of a writer you are but if you have any kind of story telling talent go for it. Spelling wont even matter to much my father is an author of 2 novels and his spelling is just as bad as my little brothers, but he takes the time to spell check constantly knowing that he spells bad, things like that have eleminated the NEED for proper spelling heh. So it shouldn't matter that you arent a great speller. If you are a good writer, that's a different story.

Do what you want, but stay within the bounds of reality. I would definitly not depend on a career as a writer unless some unbiased professionals have said that you show promise.

But there is nothing wrong with minoring in it, or just taking a lot of classes having to do with it and do it as a hobby.
