Sole purpose of college nowadays is to have credibility on your resume. Maybe in the past you could go to college because you wanted to be an overall well rounded individual and it opened a ton of doors but those days are long over. I like that your doing your passion and if you write a book, I would buy the shit out of it because I support authors and enjoy the fact they can weave a tale. Just saying its hard man nowadays.

User avatar #79 - hawaiianhappysauce (05/23/2014) [-]
Because of supply and demand. There are many people who major in English and therefore the employers can be very picky. If you majored in, say, Programming, you will have a better shot because there are fewer people who know programming.
User avatar #107 - thelastelephant (05/23/2014) [-]
Other English major here. I spent three years at a tech school thinking I wanted to do programming. It was the most tedious and depressing work I've ever done.

I've been raised by a family who's always encouraged me to find a job in something I love, and that's writing. You're right, this generation has a high-demand for tech savvy graduates, but I'd be happier submitting stories in the hopes of getting published over sitting behind a desk with a computer throwing errors that I don't understand at me.

PS: I'm still pursuing CS as a minor.

If you haven't already, give the rest of the show a look, it's fantastic.

As for your dream of becoming an author, I don't doubt you'll do well.
I think that a lot of people forget that a large part of success is in your mindset, and in how you approach your audience. You can succeed in almost anything so long as you set yourself apart from the crowd, while also finding an area of common appeal. Find a way to do that with your writing, and you should be set.

Good luck, dude.

Why do you need a degree to be an author? Save that money that you're spending for college, use it to take time from work or something and just write something. The only thing a degree is for is to impress other people and when people buy a book you write they aren't going to care how much time you spent in college.

If you took the time to actually write a couple books the cost for each to publish would still be less than what it costs to get any degree in college.

But obviously you aren't going to listen to anyone's advice and odds are you're lying just to make that post.

Write about giant spiders that live in a world filled with hornet riders. These hornet riders would of come from a far distant land that was once the greatest empire in the world, but some event happened that destroyed them all. Except one family of hornet riders that lived off the coast of the mainland where most of the story takes place on an island.

Make it so most of your characters die in weddings or when they get too popular.

Try becoming decent on the internet w an audience like FJ first as u study. If no success, change majors. Learn somethin else entirely.

Bonus: get into politics, raise minimum wage, make a law forcing the top 1% to actually trickle down all the money they keep piling up.
User avatar #148 - meganinja (05/23/2014) [-]
You don't need to go to College to become an author... it's rather pointless. School can't teach you to imagine. I'm an amateur author (inb4 I write fanfics, I don't, I just don't want to publish) as a upcoming Sophomore in college. It helps that I am a History major so I have the free time, but an English major won't really teach you anything you shouldn't already know.

you are wasting your time in college then that degree won't be worth a damn thing. do the smart thing and get a vocational education and learn a skill...then fall back as a writer if it doesn't work out. liberal arts degrees are useless.
#137 - eyecontacthandjob (05/23/2014) [-]
That is awesome that you are going doing that. It is a great major and being an author is a prestigious career that is very fulfilling. I wish you all the best.

HOWEVER, here is why I rant. What I strongly disagree with and will NOT put up with is that just in case IF you do not make it as an author. Just in case you don't get a good paying job with your degree, you better not speak a word about why the system is so fucked up. I better not hear a peep saying that "The world is so tough and oppressive, and the rich just keep getting richer, and it's all corporate greed, and it's not at all my fault I don't have a good job or live comfortably because it is someone else out there that is screwing me over". This is 100% your decision, that is what is so great about going to college, YOU have to choice to select your future.

TL;DR- Life is full of choices. Understand that going against the odds and setting yourself up in a field with a large amount of risk is NOT the safest way to money. However if it isn't all about money, and fulfillment is what you are looking for, fantastic, just don't go barking at everyone else who wants to play it safe.

degrees in English aren't worthless though, it's shit like Women's Studies or Fine Arts or Basket Weaving that people are like wtf are you doing.
User avatar #106 - mads (05/23/2014) [-]
A fine art degree kind of acts like an opener for more academic degrees like Art History. It's not as big as a BS degree as people make out.
User avatar #108 - drunkasaurus (05/23/2014) [-]
I mean. I guess if you wanna just spend time getting degrees? The fuck do you do with an Art History degree then? Anyways, I was thinking more about return on investment. You can actually get that with an English degree; tons of jobs will take English degrees. Same with Accounting, Engineering, or the Business degrees. Anything art/philosophy related is kind of shit.
User avatar #110 - mads (05/23/2014) [-]
Not really if you get to do a Masters in Art History, which can be done with 3 years Fine art and 2 years Art History you can go into Art Critique, which you can make £78,500. You can also go into pretty much any social science/social work field. Most management jobs etc. It's not as crap a degree as people make out. It just opens a different world of employment that you don't really hear about unless you are in 'that world' so to speak
User avatar #116 - drunkasaurus (05/23/2014) [-]
Dude if that's what your passionate about then go for it, but a best case scenario of a 78k salary is not a good use of a masters degree any way you look at it.
