11K buzzes
Creative writing is any writing that goes outside the bounds of normal professional, journalistic, academic, or technical forms of literature, typically identified by an emphasis on narrative craft, character development, and the use of literary tropes or with various traditions of poetry and poetics. Due to the looseness of the definition, it is possible for writing such as feature stories to be considered creative writing, even though they fall under journalism, because the content of features is specifically focused on narrative and character development. Both fictional and non-fictional works fall into this category, including such forms as novels, biographies, short stories, and poems. In the academic setting, creative writing is typically separated into fiction and poetry classes, with a focus on writing in an original style, as opposed to imitating pre-existing genres such as crime or horror. Writing for the screen and stage—screenwriting and playwrighting—are often taught separately, but fit under the creative writing category as well.

    And, here I sit, a Catholic who wanted to be a Jew.

    Not for any religious thing, it's just that a girlfriend's mother made this INSANE brisket braised in Pepsi.

    I loved that brisket and seriously considered marrying the girl who's mom it was. Then I realized that my love for a dish just wasn't sufficient grounds for matrimony. Besides, she couldn't cook worth a damn. Maybe I could have married her mother

    Alas, I am too fond of khazzer to convert. No pork? No way! I couldn't possibly forgo a roasted pork loin with far too much garlic.

    I guess Islam is out of the question for me too.

    I used to get invited to Seder until I once rapped the berakhah. (I hope I'm spelling that right)

Because you can put everything else aside and focus on the concept that it is the strength of your noticing that has you focused on the creatures who amaze us with flight. I so think this means something to you, and to what is arriving in your life.

    I have always loved science and Spring is a reminded for me of new chances. For example, every one has a new beginning in their lives. Take this. Every single cell in the human body replaces itself over a period of seven years. That means there's not even the smallest part of you now that was part of you seven years ago. So it is like a Spring blooming every seven years for those who don't like their old "Shell", because it is brand new, literally.

    You are laying down great marks Joyce, great marks because of your touch and ultimately they will be felt even more greatly by those who are in most need of this touch.

    May this poem reach those who feel most out of touch, for in reading this, I acknowledge that world which needs this touch most and which has most assuredly received yours. Such are marks left in time.

    I've been trying to promote my post "Turmoil." I know how good the writing is, but relevants are scarce. I only have 17. I was hoping to see if you promoted posts by "body of works." I strive to provoke emotion in my reader; and, from what I have heard, am successful.

    #7 Dear Ness, there is still something highly relevant here to a piece that was written about Brazil https://www.bebee.com/producer/@henriquearake/brazil-will-open-its-doors-for-foreign-rural-investments View more
    #7 Dear Ness, there is still something highly relevant here to a piece that was written about Brazil https://www.bebee.com/producer/@henriquearake/brazil-will-open-its-doors-for-foreign-rural-investments and the decision right now of the Brazilian government to open doors to foreign rural investments and this buzz has been written by @Henrique Arake about what is more likely to happen in Brazil and why investors require great due diligence in terms of the pit and peril of investing in land in Brazil.

    So I invite Henrique to read the second half of your story because there is a reality described in your experiences of the social and economic fabric of Bali which correlate with what lessons Brazil can learn. This is also a good example of the power of story because it captures experiences in a different way - which is the great failing of central planners and economists and why time and time again the human factor is totally missed - and then downstream consequences show us we learned nothing from history and society resigns itself to saying "history has repeated itself'.

    Finally @Paul Walters concern that too dark a story begins to impact on "personal brand" is unfortunately can be a reality. I actually see it as an indictment on the bubbles of image we have pinned our collective economic thinking to. This is the very kind of image which is leading this current debacle of a Brazilian government to do what is right for them in the short-term without a concern for long-term grassroots dynamics.

    #9 I've been going for 25 odd years now as I got fed up with Hawaii. Sad to see so much development with Planet Hollywood, Carrefour, Starbucks and all, but it is still pretty magical. I just finished a piece on Bali to be posted tomorrow perhaps.

    #3 Thank you Dean. I do love the island. I often call what I go through on the daily basis in lost in translations situations as 'the Bali shrug.' For me, the frustrations have eased and I now flow as much as possible with the organic behaviour of the island and it's quite astounding culture. I learn every day, therefore I know I am alive.

    #5 Manjit, I blush. Yes you have found us out. I nearly did not post this tapestry, but Mr. Walters egged me on. I toned it down because the nature of this island is almost black magic in a way. We need to be aware that what we put into the universe we often get back. The day after I was struck by some significant situations that still baffle me. I can only think that I encouraged them with my piece. I will not be slowed though. Thank you for your kind words. I very much appreciate them.

    Me thinks this sounds like a conspiracy, Paul Walters is from Bali, you are from Bali - Paul Walters is brilliant, this buzz is brilliant. Why would brilliant people like you paint a picture in my head that actually makes me glad I am one who didn't emigrate to Bali. There is something that does not add up here.

    But seriously, you have captured a lifetime and weaved words that put me in your shoes - and I could feel the time and the changes - and that is the skills of a great writer, to put another in shoes they may never wear, and yet absorb a history they will probably never face - and in the end this is story of love and affinity for Bali - because you can only notice the fine details of place if you are interested in that place.

    I look at my neighbours and they just revolve day after day without any sense of community, or even who we are - just a place they come back to on a day that isn't a work day. Now if one trades a brain-dead day-to-day life experience for one where the senses are living both the ongoing good and bad, then you definitely chose life. I am not going to complain, that as distant as the spaces are around my home, it is paradise for now within.

    For sure economic times and psychological changes in societal values may well transpire (after all we can put it down to Trump), but where home is that is the place to be - and despite all the downturns of near-gentrification experiences, this buzz tells me that Bali is very much home to you, as it is to Paul Walters. The last thing this could be is a conspiracy to keep people like me out :-)
