Let’s be honest. My posts have sucked. For a while. I’m not happy with what I’m writing, which in turn makes me believe that you probably aren’t either.
I’m taking a class this quarter that is making me realize just how crappy my writing has gotten. I never claimed to be a perfect writer but I have always thought I was somewhat decent at it. Not lately.
I haven’t had to seriously write for anyone or anything in a very long while, so I appreciate that I’ve been forced to dust off my old talent and mold it into something better than before. Also, the threat of your work being blasted in front of the class also helps out with that, too.
That being said, I’m also learning a thing or two about blogging. We have to keep a blog for the class and post what is assigned, but eventually we’ll need a topic. Those of you who know This One B., know that there is absolutely no topic to it at all. Sometimes I talk about dating, sometimes about music, sometimes about food, pop culture, life experiences, tattoos, sports, coffee. Whatever. I need to set a focus. Another great advantage to this class is that I’m getting so inspired reading the work of others that it provides me with ideas and makes me want to work harder; to “get on their level”, so to speak.
Pretty soon, This One B. will have a clear topic and focus. I’m toying around with a few things but what the direction is won’t be revealed until later. I hope all 70 of you stick through the change and continue to enjoy or not enjoy (either way, tell me!).
Love you all you little weirdos,
