Mad March Hares

COURSES ON SALE UNTIL MARCH 31, 2015

The expression ‘mad as a March hare’ comes from early European communities that, almost two thousand years ago, observed hares (and probably other animals) when they emerged from winter hibernation leaping and dancing about in the spring sunshine.

Their dancing had a more important role than enjoying the warmth and stretching of their legs. It was, in fact, the first stage of a courting ritual which had the production of offspring as its ultimate goal, thus ensuring their survival and strengthening of particular species. The hares may have seemed mad to a casual onlooker but like most actors in nature’s theater, they had a clear role to play. In many ways, our first steps into the writing world might be similar to the hares’ emergence. We get the urge to write; we twitch and hop, type and scrawl, and generally carry on as though some grand new world anxiously awaits our donation. A few tentative tries may bring the despair of non-success. Where to now in our quest to become a writer?

Well, like the hares, we have to learn. They observe their elders and betters in the hare world. If we do the same in our world, we’ll soon see that would-be authors learn from the more experienced.

Writing interaction may come in adult learning classes or online writing forums. In a world where time seems to be in shorter supply than ever, an online writing course may be a good choice. At Creative Writing Institute, you can work one-on-one with a private tutor. You will learn five times faster under private tutelage and the price will be less than what you would pay for instructor-driven classes where attention is divided among students because CWI is a nonprofit charity.

Personal feedback is a bit like the hares chewing fresh grass in the spring. Experiment with it. Take a few nibbles and see how you like it. It’s a safe and inexpensive way to learn the craft of writing. Choose your own field to dance in and increase your chances of writing success.
