So at the start of September, I was introduced to Year 13 – the last year of A-Levels, and the last year before talks of universities and apprenticeships start to become more common.
This year, I am still studying Communication and Culture, ICT and English. But with Use of Maths being only a one-year course, I finished the course. This was at the exact same time that Creative Writing was set to become a Year 12 option at my school. I applied, and I got in! I now have creative writing lessons! Huzzah!
Already I have had a couple of lessons, and it is continuing to spark my imagination. I have learned about non-fiction styles I have yet to explore, and today, I wrote what I think was my first bit of comedy writing (even if I do say so myself!)
But I think the course has been great so far at teaching me about learning to write different styles – it’s alright to specialise, but not before you’ve explored other options.
Are you a writer? What do you write? Have you studied Creative Writing as an AS level? Comment below!
(P.S. Sorry for this not going up yesterday!)
