Thread: I GOT AN OFFER!

    I GOT AN OFFER!

    I got an offer from a University to do my English degree and I have zero A levels (I trained at culinary school instead, hah)

    I applied expecting to be turned away at the door but they approached academics with some of the work I've produced since joining the site and they've given me an offer! I wouldn't have written any of it without actually having joined (There's about ten poems as part of my submission portfolio from here!)

    Now I have to do a few free online courses to prove my readiness for the course (So far proving fairly straightforward) and then it's just the interview! ^^;

    eeeeeeeeeeeeeek, thank you so much guys <3

    This is exciting on a couple of different levels, first congratulations that is no small accomplishment. I don't think anyone here ever doubted that you are talented and have a spark about you that is kind of contagious.

    What I find most exciting about this is that you were a stranger here just a short time ago, brand new and un-known. With a spirit of boldness, and I would say courage, you threw yourself into this community. You did not hold back but gave it your all. Your success is an accomplishment for both yourself and the WF. There is another Boofy out there, another writer who is talented and looking for a way to succeed. They need only look at you as an example to see that you are rewarded for courage and hard work, that is remarkable and it makes me feel good to be able to point at you as a role model for other young writers...Bob

    Hehe, I don't know what to say. Thank you, Plastic, Tkent, TJ. All I've wanted to do is give back after everything I feel I've been given by you all here. I never felt remotely confident in my abilities before I found WF and I feel I owe a lot of my progress and my enthusiasm to you guys. I always wanted to study English, growing up, but opted for cooking because it was recession proof and I think that something convinced me that I just wasn't good enough. Well I applied after I joined here and I started writing my novel (Of which there are fifteen chapters so far!), I started writing poetry, reading more than ever and in different genre's. I really started thinking about what I was writing, putting my work up here and getting feedback, reading some of the brilliant excerpts of others, it really gave me a firmer idea of my style and of pacing, things I feel I neglected to acknowledge before.

    Coming here has snowballed me right to the place where I feel I've always wanted to be. I don't have the words to express my gratitude. ^^;

    She lost herself in the trees,
    among the ever-changing leaves.
    She wept beneath the wild sky
    as stars told stories of ancient times.
    The flowers grew toward her light,
    the river called her name at night.
    She could not live an ordinary life,
    with the mysteries of the universe
    hidden in her eyes....

    Well knock me sideways and call me Rupert. The minute you walked in the door I knew you were a person of distinction. You made this happen, (Delete) amazing. One day I'm gonna be saying, hey I knew her before she was famous.

    Pure magic.
