Welcome to another installment of Writing Myths Monday. I hope this Monday morning finds you well. Let’s jump into this weeks myth.
Writing Myth#8 – I need a Masters in Fine Arts. Well if that’s true I have a lot of successful author friends who have a lot of explaining to do. You don’t need a degree to prove that you are a good writer. Your own dedication to improving your writing is what makes you a good writer. What a MFA does for you is give you a sheltered period to write. You’re immersed in all things writing, but you can create that for yourself by going to conferences or retreats. Unless your ultimate goal with your writing is to become a professor at a university, you don’t need a MFA to be a writer.
Until next time, be happy, stay safe, and good writing vibes into the universe.
