Creative Writing as She is Played:
…sometimes I think creative writing assignments would be more interesting if we turned it into a drinking game. Every time someone presents a cliched, hackneyed idea a la “The Chosen One” or “You discover that there is an ancient angelic war and that ZOMG YOU’RE ACTUALLY AN ANGEL” or “Faerie (the extra ‘e’ is VERY important) creatures exist and ZOMG YOU’RE ACTUALLY A FAERIE CREATURE TOO” or “The king’s son has been kidnapped by dragons. Are you a bad enough dude to rescue the king’s son?” I have to take a shot.
Clearly, I’d die of alcohol poisoning before the end of week three of class.
