Don't write like an English major

Last Update: November 02, 2016

This is a quote from Kyle's lesson in course 2 level 4 (Traffic Breakdown). "Creating content does not mean you have to be an English major."

That is so funny because you do not want to write your content like an English Major. I graduated with a BA in English Literature and had to analyze and write a lot of essays. For us boring English majors, we studied, analyzed and structured our essays according to the genre and literature of the period. Ugh,let me tell you, it was excruciating to be so structured and not be able to express myself in the way I wanted to. (But Shakespeare was pretty cool dude. He was kind of scandalous. I liked writing about his plays.)

Anyway, take it from me, you don't need to be an English major. Just talk about what you know. Write like you would talk and everything will fall in to place.

Thanks for reading!
