The second semester of this course is over. I turned in my writing portfolio on 3 June 2022. During the spring semester, I created a collection of creative writing, both fiction and non-fiction, but finally decided upon submitting a 4000-word short story for the final grade.
If I am a science writer, why am I taking a course in creative writing? Writing is an art, an act of creation, but it is also a craft. I have learned many useful writing tools in this course. The ability to construct a good sentence is a highly transferrable skill to any kind of writing.
