My favorite writing time in high school involved a piece of creative writing we did. We were in the process of reading Beowulf. Our teacher gave us an assignment: get out the newspaper, pick something you find there, and rewrite it in the style of Beowulf. If you’ve never read the story, the language makes something as routine as picking up a fork sound like the most incredible heroic feat in the history of civilization. I scanned the newspaper and came to the comics section. As fate would have it, it was the time of year for the annual Peanuts comic where Lucy pulls the football away from Charlie Brown. I’d found my topic, and wrote away. I think it took me one sitting to write it out (3-4 pages), and a few bits of editing. I got an A, and when the teacher handed the essays back, he specifically told everyone that they should read my story. Given that he was a man of rather high standards, that was praise indeed.
