What’s Wrong With University?

Is there something wrong when:

  • students work two jobs and go to school full-time just to pay for tuition?
  • universities care more about the bottom line than they do about the lines of individuals waiting to enrol in a course they paid for?
  • one performance on an exam determines a quarter, a third, or even more than half one’s grade for an entire course?
  • older authority figures are unreasonably condescending to young adults doing their best to navigate this world? 
  • someone is told to drop out because they are stressed out?
  • parents and/or students pay thousands of dollars for an education but don’t get one?

What A Writer Is Not

A writer is many things, but they are not…

  • Wrong
  • Lazy
  • Boring
  • Narrow-minded
  • Ignorant
  • Oblivious
  • Clueless

Writers are right. If you think differently, guess what…

You’re wrong.

Why Writers Are Right‏

Writers are right more often than they are not. If you want a statistic, they are right 99.9 percent of the time. Says who? Says me. The writer. And this isn’t one of those 00.1 percent instances where I’m wrong. 

But if you still don’t believe me, here’s a list of reasons. 

  1. Writers are readers. Meaning they read. Meaning they learn. Meaning they acquire knowledge mere non-writers will never acquire. Muhaha. 
  2. Writers are writers. They write words and rearrange these written words. So their grasp of the language they write in is very advanced. You should never question what they say in regards to grammar or spelling. Because they have experience and wisdom.  
  3. Writers are editors. Editors know what they’re doing. They wouldn’t be editors if they didn’t. 
  4. Writers are researchers. And you can be sure they fact check everything. 

Am I right or am I right?

Not Writing A Novel For NaNoWriMo 2015

It’s about time I bombarded you with NaNoWriMo posts.

You’re welcome.

I need to talk about my projected project. Somebody thinks she’s good with words. But she’s wrong.

Since I like to rebel, I’m not writing a novel for National Novel Writing Month.

And because I’m evil, I won’t tell you what I am writing.

Not that you care, am I right?

Don’t prove me wrong.

Personal Reflection · Writing

I Am Thrilled When People Prove Me Wrong

I like to think I’m a good judge of character.

Sometimes, however, how I regard someone is not a true reflection of who they actually are.

That’s okay though.

I’m more than thrilled when people prove me wrong and they end up being a better person than I originally thought.

It makes for interesting writing.

Don’t You Hate It When…

Don’t you hate it when you’re wrong?

I know I do.

Which is why I’m rarely wrong.

Personal Reflection

When I Want To Give Up

When I want to give up, I think about all the people I need to prove wrong. All the people who know nothing about me aside from my name. And even then some individuals mispronounce or misspell it. But I persist and I persevere because my ego is too large to let haters get the last laugh.

Don’t give up. Rise above. Always get the last word. Be the last one standing.

Don’t correct a writer unless they are wrong.

I forgot to mention writers are never wrong.

So basically you never correct a writer.
