Writing for assignments.
Frankly, I hate it.
The thing that I hate about it is the limits on your creativity. How many times have you wanted to go somewhere with a story for school, only to realize that it has to be only three pages, or there can’t be anything too gory, and you’re left with barely a fragment of what could have been a beauty?* That’s what I feel.
Personally, I think that all English teachers who force their normally writerly-type students to stray from their creative system should be shot.
