Wheeeeeeeeee… It’s a leap of faith.Posted: May 30, 2010
I was browsing summer study options the other day and I ended up looking at this Creative Writing course. At the time they had a spare place and it’s basically what I am looking to do so I’ve jumped blindly at it. I haven’t sorted funding. I haven’t sorted the time off work. I don’t even meet the entrance requirements but I want to do it. Previous lecturers on the course include well-known people such as Neil Gaiman. They’ve accepted my booking fee on the proviso that I sort them out with a letter of recommendation and some sample writing. I can do the latter but it’s not clear what they want for the former. I hope a character reference is okay. It’s been a long time since I’ve been at school and I am not going to lie – I find the prospect of all of this terrifying.
