Well now … I’m curious to hear what my fellow writers have to say about Ian McEwan’s advice to aspiring authors. He says:
- to write well, one must read, and
- one must set aside time for writing (creative writing courses can be useful).
No controversy so far … but, he also says “it’s the spectre of the undergraduate writing program which I think is deathly.” Phew – glad I have an undergraduate degree in English Language and Literature!
Those of you with an undergraduate degree in creative writing – what do you think?
