The Economist’s writing course (interpretation of an idiom)

There’s this ad that keeps popping up in my Facebook feeds, a writing course by The Economist. I kept ignoring it so far but today I thought, as I’m now in employment I could see what it is about and maybe it will be interesting? I’m not sure the content would apply to the kind of blogging I chose (which is basically venting) but still, I would be willing to give it a go.

I don’t know how much it is as the price wasn’t revealed at this stage but when I read the description I was really taken aback.

On completion of the course I’ll ‘walk away with’? Again, I’m sure neurotypical people wouldn’t interpret it this way as if they did that statement would never make into the description, but for me that’s like if someone was saying: Are you hoping to become a professional writer? Go away, there’s nothing there for you.

I can’t help it, that’s how I understand it. Like, basically, I’ll get a kick in my a** as a goodbye.

I bet that’s not what they meant but I already made up my mind: I’m not doing it. Even if it was cheaper than Starbucks caramel latte. No way!

Although I wouldn’t mind other ways to work on my creativity. Let me know if you are aware of something interesting.
