I've worked hard on my Creative Writing Course this past 18 months and successfully completed the first half of the course focusing on the non-fiction elements. Finally I have reached the part I've longed to tackle all along. Writing fiction.
Prior to Christmas I posted off my first completed fiction assignment and awaited the return of this with my tutor's comments. This is the first time that I have allowed anyone to read any of my stories and to say I was nervous is an under-statement. All I've wanted to do is write good stories and my worst nightmare would be to receive negative comments on my work.
There on my door mat when I returned from work was the dreaded envelope. I anxiously read the first few lines and couldn't stop the grin from spreading across my face. The comments I have received were amazing and my hard work that I put into this assignment have really paid off.
I can't wait to cracking on my next one and who knows, maybe I might now pluck up the courage to start submitting some of my stories.
