Academic VS Creative?

*****

Looks like writing a blog to buck up on my English isn't a very bright idea after all.

I suspect that it is too much posting on this blog that caused me to fail on that stupid QET (Q-"something" English Test) because as my professor put it,

"English in university is not like English in secondary school. We do not emphasize on creative writing but rather academic writing".

And what is academic writing in other words?
Boring writing.


Allow me to demonstrate. What i have wrote above is called creative writing.
What i'm about to write below now is called academic writing.


Research have showed that writing on blogs may heighten the risk of a student failing in the QET examination.

According to professor Priscillia Phan, "English in university is not like English in secondary school. We do not emphasize on creative writing but rather academic writing".

Academic writing in other words is defined as boring writing.




Zzzzz.......
