Writing Just to Be Writing
I registered for ENG 400 last semester because I hadn't written anything but term papers in years. I felt like I needed to put words on paper, but I knew I wouldn't do it if I had a choice in the matter. I would have too many other classes and too many other assignments. We are half-way through the semester, and I do not regret my decision to take this class. I've struggled to write. I've laughed as I wrote, and I've been embarrassed to read what I wrote out loud, but I've written. In addition to this, I've done some editing and am learning a bit about E-publishing. If you are the creative type, I would urge you to consider taking this course the next time it is offered. You'll be challenged in your writing, and you'll also get the chance to help publish Trillium, Piedmont's yearly, literary journal. The class is a lot of fun. I'm glad I took it!
