Creative, not Technical


Okay, I officially admit it, blogging and writing fiction has made me a creative writer, not a technical writer. Technical writing scares the hell out of me. My mom’s the opposite, she admitted last night as we were heading home from school. She stated her reason being because she used to write for the government while I’m just writing for fun.

At the moment, I have the business school acceptance essay and the current event paper for my auditing class sitting in their corresponding folders, both documents, still blank and both are due on the same date, 10/22.

I don’t know what to write for either of them. The prompt for the acceptance essay is to write about my motivations to go to business school. I don’t know, because my mom suggested? As the matter of fact, that’s the best out of the three prompts I could’ve chosen. The length is one to two pages, double space.

Sounds easy but why am I coming up blank?

I mean, I tried to pretend that it’s one of those bad prompts that the Daily Post throws out at us now and then because trust me, I’ve written for worse prompts. So why can’t I come up with anything?

It said personal essay, so it’s not even technical. It’s just a standard essay. Introduction, body, and conclusion. Easy as pie.

My other essay, I understand. I have to relate the article back to auditing but this one, why can’t I do it?

I think my brain is just trying to drag this out to the last minute. Procrastination is at play and I am not in the mood. I don’t have the time to wait until the last minute. My trip to Chicago is in two weeks and these are due before then. I have to get writing.

Seriously though, can someone give me some ideas as a motivation to go into business school? I just need a hint, a simple idea, anything to help kick-start my creativity.

  1. How about this… you plan on being a famous writer in the future, and need to know how to run the business side of your career? I think it would be good to know this, instead of leaving it up to others. Good Luck on writing the essays! 🙂
