    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this class. This is one for a person who likes English and writing. It was focused styles and techniques of writing. We wrote many things ranging from sentence activities to short stories. We did many activities to prompt writing ideas and even did an assignment where we wrote the first ten pages of a novel.

    Course highlights:

    I've always been a person who does well in English. When I thought I knew just about everything there was to know about writing, I was introduced to more styles and techniques. These proved very useful in my writing and I believe I've improved as a writer.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    One thing to do is to write daily. Whether it's how your day went, a random thought or idea, or a short story, it's up to you. It doesn't have to be fancy or advanced. Just writing everyday helps. Also, when you're given an assignment to write a short story or something similar, do not procrastinate, even if you have writer's block. You will more than likely find yourself waiting until the last minute and throwing together something that could be much better if the time was put in. Lastly, pay attention and take notes. If you don't pay attention, you can't apply what you learned to your writing. If you don't take notes, you probably won't be able to remember everything when you go to write.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to other students, because it extends your horizon on becoming a better writer. It teaches you how you can become a more intriguing of a writer.

    Course highlights:

    Throughout the semester, we wrote short stories, different types of poetry, and creative non-fiction stories. It was encouraged to "show" the reader the different stories, not to just "tell" them. I learned that you can make a story much more interesting with defined details. Also, that if you don't find whatever you're writing about, neither will your reader(s).

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't procrastinate! If you are given a specific amount of time to complete a project, get it done right away. Finishing your project at the very last second isn't going to do you any good in the long-run.
