What can you do with a B.A. in English?
Ah the eternal question, asked my English majors (and their parents) all across the world. While the actual answer to that question varies from teaching to writing to editing to law school, the practical answer is…not much. Deep down inside every English major dreams of writing the next great American novel, but few actually do. Many, like myself, end up going back to school to gain an actual skill and their English degree sits inside their brains gathering dust. Well I’ve decided that it’s time to bring mine out and dust it off. After all I’m still paying for the thing so why not start using it. The blog world seems to be the best place to start exercising my B.A.!
