Comments on: The Irony of Life http://www.rebuildyourback.com/personal/the-irony-of-life.php Lower back pain and neck pain can usually be resolved with just a simple home treatment program. Studies show that sciatica, herniated discs, pinched nerves, leg pain and even whiplash don't require drugs, surgery or chiropractic spinal manipulation, while rebuilding has proven to provide permanent pain relief.

Hey Ami: I’m starting to wonder how many other writers faced similar experiences with their teachers growing up.

It was an elective class, not required at all. I’m not sure why I took it. It might have been a second choice. Of course, now I’m so glad I had that class. I barely typed 45 wpm in class then, and now can do up to 100 words, though I average around 75.

I, too, was never really encouraged by my english teachers. One in particular called my story about a girl on a rocket unimaginitive fluff. It might have been derivative, I’m not sure. I had loved writing it, and it came from my fantasies. I was 14. She said I shouldn’t be writing about adventures in space, but about real things. I figured I just wasn’t cut out to be a writer, then.

Though I didn’t hate English, nor they me, I just thought I’d be doing science instead. It wasn’t until a creative writing class in college, taken after scribbling much bad poetry all over my calculus worksheets, that I realized this was ‘my calling’. I loved it. People loved what I wrote and class members told me I should be doing it. The teacher still wasn’t enthusiastic, though.

Ah well.

You remember Harry Morgan in Dragnet?
Well, I type like he did in the show.
I am faster though. I can type around 60 words a minute, if it’s a one letter word.

Great post! :^)
