I hate this stupid writing course. Every time I try to do an activity or assignment it brings me down so much I always end up writing about death and/or misery.

And it's all so boring.

This is the kind of course that churns out all those writers that can be found taking up shelves and shelves of space in the bestseller section of the bookshop cos people nowadays want to read crap about other peoples screwed up love lives.

It's boring. I would much rather be like Tolkien or Pratchett and invent my own universe than write about that. Of course the main difference between them and me is that they're extremely talented and I'm, well, not.

Plus creating a universe takes a lot of time and effort, so that's probably not going to happen. But I want to write something more interesting than the next Bridget Jones' Diary, which seems to be what the people doing this course are aiming for.

I have never read Bridget Jones' Diary. I don't want to. It doesn't interest me at all, but this is the kind of thing people like. (I have seen the film though, very boring.)

I just want to write things that are fun and this course is not fun. I was worried about doing it and turning writing into a chore and that's what's happened. It's no longer something I want to do.
