Per my last "Famous Last Words" post, I will be taking the mythology version of this class next semester, so I am looking at this as not only an end to a semester, but also a to a new beginning!
Also mentioned previously, I really enjoy the structure of this class. I feel like I am able to incorporate writing as more of a hobby than an assignment, Of course there are grades involved, restrictions, etc, but I look at those as more of a guide than a "requirement." I also like being able to be part of a class that allows me to view other students' writing and creativity. Not only does allow me to be really engaged with my fellow students, but I am also able to learn from their writing and research techniques, which ultimately helps guide my own :-)
By getting input on my writing from both students and a professor, I feel like I am (and was able to) expand my writing a lot more than a class in which I am essentially forced to write a story every week, or every so often. I feel as though those types of class set ups and not as unique and efficient as this class is; when I do write for those classes, I feel like I am not submitting assignments for my own improvement, but submitting them just for a grade.
So, in the end, I would like to appreciate once again the methods used in setting up this class and I feel as though they were extremely effective. I am glad to be given another opportunity to explore and be a part of another version of this class with the same set-up, so that I can continue improving my writing.
