The more I read about writing and write about the process of writing, the more I think my major was wrongly placed in Economics. It’s easy to say that I’ll have promising career in a viable field of study, but it’s not easy to say that my strength is in Econ and that I enjoy it to a large degree. I wasn’t sold on English as my major, and I’m still not now (perhaps it’s too late to change, even?), but regardless, I’ve rediscovered my love for writing purely for writing’s sake recently.
I think I want to try “morning writing”, as Melody called it. I think that maybe if I start writing more and more, I’ll find inspiration to continue writing even into my alternate career path as an Economist.
As far as writing my second draft poem goes, I’m still struggling to piece together what parts I want to include in my creative composition. I think I’m trying to determine what information is important to disclose, and what isn’t. I find it often more difficult to do that in a creative piece, but I think I’m getting better at it.
