Do you need a Degree to be a WriterNeed a degree to become a writer?
Was a writer supposed to get a degree in English, yes or no?
All writers tend to engrave their own writer-shaped doors into the industrial world, and then he seals them behind them, in the Cask-of-Amontillado manner. I can make this Poe jest because I was an English maj. I' m licensed to do such fiddling with literature; if you're catched doing such a play on words without the right level, you're chased.
There''s not a single real way to become a novelist except, you know, just how to get to read things, lead a lifetime and record things. Go on rereading, go on with your lives and put things down until you're kind of okay with it, and then later, until maybe you're kind of good at it, and hey, ta-da, you're probably a novelist.
Oh, you still want to run this english graduation thing. I don't think you need an English diploma. I can give you any grade you want. School-leaving or no school. Alternatively, two grades. I' m a graduate of English. âThis is really a two-part deal: the first is, I want to be a writer, so what routine is best to help me master this ability (and typing, by the way, is a capability that you can practise and one that can be increased with training).
Part two is, but also, how can I not famish and perish while trying to become a real pen monkey? Here is the reason why you might consider an English qualification in this respect. An English diploma at grammar schools will cover things you are supposed to enjoy, and it will enhance your esteem for things like, oh, I don't know, BEVERAGES and WORDS and HISTORIES.
There is a well-rounded programme of courses in German that is very varied and may even allow you to adapt your own approaches. You are learning some story, some journalists, you may be learning to criticize literature, which ranges from structuralistic critique to feministic critique to all other critical school. You' ll be reading poems, reading early US historical articles, learning to compose and write non-fiction, learning about articles and memoir and even some tech-scripting.
My first English diploma was with Toni Morrison (from whom I learned English thanks to my English program), Margaret Atwood (*Wellen*), James Joyce, Joseph Campbell, with mouse. There was a great programme with (mostly) great instructors. As an author I was assisted by deep and varied readings and by getting to know the broad ness and deepness of the traditions I wanted to do.
Then on the careers side, the British major gets along fine. I' ve never had anyone rolling their eyes on a British grade on the occupancy side - I had folks in my familiy or in living rolling their eyes as if it were a bathroom tissue grade, but it's not. A few major subjects I know of in England are now solicitors.
There are some who work for large banking or technology firms, others in the areas of sales, promotion and communication because the skills to understand and understand the story of the spelled words will help you in a number of areas. It' a bit like a paramilitary knives - it has many instruments in it.
I' ve had ad, technical, librarian positions, all because of a lousy A-levels. This was not a poor decision, and most of the British major I know are in fairly sound condition, professionally speaking. Some use part of their degrees, others are still writing successfully, dramatists and even scriptwriters.
You' ll get a double victory in an Inglés degree: Look, you as a human being have a certain amount of interests and abilities. When you are priviledged enough to be able to find a grade that talks to the things you like and the things you can do, and you ride those things to a grade and a literacy career. If you are able to do so, you will find a grade that will help you find the things you like and the things you can do.
Histoire, philosophies, technology, arts, whatever. Neither of them will harm your typing careers, and if you work your butt off and are open to study, I think you'll be well. Particularly if you never want to be an author, i.e. you want to copy your arse, no matter what qualification you have, no matter what education you have.
If you want to be a novelist, be a novelist. If you want to graduate in English, graduate in English. I will roam the earth like Sad Hulk, roam the earth like Sad Hulk.
