2K 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.

    Great post @Jim Murray, very helpful. I'm working on something now and will consciously apply these tips. I understand the "compartmentalization", I find it useful for when I have a variety of ideas which I keep in a "vault" on my desktop, working and adding to them as the thoughts come to me although when I have something in the "forefront", like the one I mentioned I will work on that from start to finish.
    Insightful and helpful contribution, Thanks.

    Thanks for the cultural reference of the musician who cannot be named... I cut my musical teeth on Gordon's work, and modeled my guitar playing after the wonderful finger-picking and chord patterns of his songs. He was actually the first professional musician I ever saw in concert, in the intimate gymnasium of Dryden High School, in North Western Ontario. I still play his tunes, including the epic Canadian Railroad Trilogy. Now that's compartmentalization at work...

    #7 Thank you, Franci-Eugenia. 711 reminds me about something in the Bible I learned about.

    The Gospel of John. Chapter 8, verse 32 sums to 13. Then I learned that the Hebrew Gematria for 'John' is 698, #23.

    Adding 698+13, we get 711, which you can divide by 9 to get #79, which gives us 7!

    #89 "The only way to cultivate responsible choice is to nourish the needs of your soul...". I couldn't agree more @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador. This what feedback is expected to do. It is sort of ideas colliding and the product of which could be unimagined sometimes.

    13/11/2017 #89 Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMA
    The goal of writing critiques (this includes comments to articles and posts), says Karen Hertsberg managing editor of the spelling software Grammarly, is to help the writer expand their potential. The best feedback is that, she says, which leaves the writer feeling they’ve had an awakening. Your comments about Sara Jacobovici’s recent response, to a post you wrote, seems as if it did just that. Her comment not only encouraged you but awakened you to new thoughts and ideas. Not to mention inspired you to write on a new - related - topic. My belief is comments to posts should encourage further conversation - even debate. Not beat other commenters down in order to quell the conversation and/or to turn it in their direction. As always, we should agree to disagree.

As you know my writings are always personal or about life in general... along with some travel blogs. I guess it wouldn't hurt to try and write on LI on occasion.

    Beautiful set of words @Savvy Raj We live in a very fast paced technological world, running from one place to another and tasking ourselves from one thing after another, it is not surprising that we cannot prioritise exactly what is important in our personal and business lives. Because we get so busy doing all the things we have to do, making them all seem a lot more important than they actually are, we start to panic and live in this constant state of urgency with much anxiety. As a result, we start to accumulate a lot of stress and tension into our bodies and forget what it actually feels like to relax, enjoy life and live in truth!

    #8 Thank you @Harvey Lloyd for your kind appreciation of this post as well as for sharing your very interesting insights here mentioning about the truth in purpose ...
    I took my time to contemplate on your words here and also thought perhaps another way of seeing is of the truth beyond facts which may just be experienced in time dimensions. Our sense of purpose may continue to be the truth of life unique to each of us but the truth is all life manifests purposefully for itself which whenever realised may take the route to the unravelling of truth in the ultimate transcedence.

    Truth is explorative as humans generationally seek the advancement of concepts left behind by their ancestors. It’s search for, is noble and just.

    If i might add to your great post the concept of truth in purpose. Purpose has been replaced with methodology. We cant find truth in methodology. Purpose is where truth is hidden. Media would have us discuss and focus on methodology as the polarizing affect. While purpose is left to the few puppet masters.

    We only know we found truth after we have journeyed with purpose that stands the test of time.

I started doing yoga in 1982, I was very young at that time. I am still doing it, but of course sometimes my condition gives me really huge difficulty even for yoga. I loved your points and I agree with you 100%!

    2 points here: 1st: you must join a good yoga school near your place to practice everyday and that will help heal your asthma. 2nd: excellent observations on subjects called 'death' and 'suffering'. Here I have learned that picking a meaningful purpose in life helps wonderfully. There are so many people in the world suffering from various ailments and yet doing something meaningful in their life / occupation. Such people you will find will be easily able to over-ride most of their own sufferings because they are always charged with the energy brought to them by their purpose / vision. In my situation i learned it was a simple practical path and hence now try follow every moment. Possibly you may be already doing the same. It was an excellent write-up @Victoria Toumit. Hope your health recovers soon.

    The second most scary thing about death, after the suffering that precedes it, is the fact that there is no guarantee there is access to beBee there! Imagine spending so much time (some even say a whole eternity) without access to your favorite bees and their buzzes!

    Jokes aside, death is a very interesting situation / process involving radical changes in consciousness. If it is seen like that, then it's not that scary. Also, I've lost enough people close to me to realize that life carries on, even without them. So, when I'm gone too, the world will manage quite well even without me. And from the perspective of the universe, my death will be quite negligible. So, if the universe doesn't care that much about it, why should I?

I had no idea Salem lies along the Ocean at the time, another added bonus. You're right, the restaurants are very cool. I love the outdoor seating among the restaurants and shops.

    Interesting pics and culture, Joyce. Here in Oz, Halloween is not celebrated (or should it be ‘revered’?) as extensively as it is in the US, so pardon my ignorance if I ask why Salem becomes a haven (or is it hell?) for the whole month of October. Is this a hangover (not the alcohol induced one) from the infamous 17th century witch trials, or is there something equally mysterious driving this evolution from a single night into a month long scare party? 🕷🕸🎭🦇👻🎃

    Esfuerzate no solo en llegar arriba

    El próximo será de evolución

    El punto de inflexión está en la cima de las cosas

    #3 I feel Dickens has a very unique talent to tell stories but I have to say he has never been a favourite of mine when it comes to writing female subjetcs. Dickensian women have always seemed to me a bit boring and two dimensional... they're either good or bad. I do love some characters from the other Bronte sisters, Wuthering Heights is a personal favourite of mine! I'm sorry to say I still haven't read much by Anne but it's on my reading list for sure. As for my top 10.. I'll add it to my list of producers :)

    I've seen them all loads of times (I have them in my private film library). I love them.

    I recommend you @María Álvarez Fernández :

    'The Red Tent' (by Anita Diamant) : It is not a classic but the story is wonderful. The Red Tent tells the story of Dinah, the daughter of Leah and Jacob, a woman mentioned only briefly in the Bible.

    'The Scarlet Letter' by Nathaniel Hawthorne. Set in the harsh Puritan community of seventeenth-century Boston, this tale of an adulterous entanglement that results in an illegitimate birth reveals Nathaniel Hawthorne's concerns with the tension between the public and the private selves. Publicly disgraced and ostracized, Hester Prynne draws on her inner strength and certainty of spirit to emerge as the first true heroine of American fiction. Arthur Dimmesdale stands as a classic study of a seld divided; trapped by the rules of society, he suppresses his passion and disavows his lover, Hester, and their daughter, Pearl.

    'True Women' (1997) Director: Karen Arthur. True Women is a sweeping saga of love, war and adventure. Spanning five decades from the Texas Revolution through the Civil War, Reconstruction and beyond, True Women is the story of the love, friendship, survival and triumphs of Sarah Ashby McClure, Euphemia Ashby King and Georgia Lawshe Woods.

    While of course I love all of Jane Austen's characters there is something very connectable with Margaret Hale and North and South. I love all the commentary on the classes, industrialisation of the north vs the gentility of the south etc... and how the characters are shaped by their physical environment, an element that is not explored in Jane Austen landscapes. Loved your list and would have to agree. Where do you put Dickens and the other Bronte sisters in this collection? Maybe we should ask you for your top 10 instead of 5?

    Geoff, Ian and Zacharias Thank you for expanding on how we address and play upon the universe. Feynman never lost his sense of humor even when his wife was desperately ill. And, to my knowledge, he never bowed to authority. That ability to walk one's own path regardless of what stands in your way is the hallmark of a wise man in my view.

    #21 Thank you @Zacharias 🐝 Voulgaris I must read your blog on wisdom I am sure it will provide interesting reading. I really enjoyed reading your views and prospective on the subject. I guess as T.S Eliot once said "Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information? We now live in a world where we are inundated with more information, on a daily basis, than we can possibly process. It is an over-communicated environment. There are so many unwanted messages bombarding us, that often the ones we want get lost in the noise. The average person can now communicate faster, with more people without thinking than ever before. Information has become disposable. It doesn't matter whether you are connected to the Internet or not. We get hit with it at every turn. At work. At home as we try to relax. And at all points in between. Fundamentally, I believe it is important to understand that wisdom is grounded in reality. To connect with reality and develop wisdom, we need to learn to be aware. Aware of ourselves and aware of those around us. We can learn from other people's success and we can learn from their mistakes. From early on, we have all been told that we should learn from other people's mistakes. Yet we see people in trouble all the time, but we forget to learn from their mistakes.

    #20 Wisdom, in my view, is indeed higher in the hierarchy of information than knowledge. However, it is not merely another level of knowledge since it is inherently different. I would also include "know-how" though in this hierarchy, as it is something in-between knowledge and wisdom, while also a great facilitator to our understanding. Being more hands-on than any of the previous types of information, know-how is a very practical kind of knowledge, a kind of knowledge that you don't really think about. Wisdom is like that but more generic. For example, being able to solve any classification problem involves not just data science knowledge but know-how too. This is linked to the mindset matter I keep talking about in my blog. Wisdom goes beyond that though. It involves more big picture matters, such as "should we apply classification at all, or would it be better to frame the problem using some other methodology?" or "is the signal in the data strong enough to render classification a viable option for capturing it and representing it in a predictive analytics model?" Also, wisdom has to do with emotional intelligence as well as morality. That's why it's not just higher in the information hierarchy, but a whole new level of thought and perception altogether.

    As for Einstein's contribution to all this, I think he was more geared towards knowledge and growth than wisdom. Maybe he was wise in some aspects of his life. It's hard to tell though from just his scientific work. I believe there were other scientists of that time that were far wiser, people like Richard Feynman (who developed a whole new way of making science relevant to the world, getting people excited about it), as well as Jacques Fresco (who envisioned a whole new society that harnesses technology for its betterment rather than as another means of production). In addition, there are also people like Carl Sagan who demonstrate a certain level of wisdom in their work, following Feynman's footsteps.

    #16 Thank you @Zacharias 🐝 Voulgaris for you wonderful contribution, I am really happy that you share the fascination in the subject. Whilst I really do share your thoughts on Imagination and Knowledge, but what is your view on Wisdom? Earlier we discussed with @Jerry Fletcher his memes of data>>Information>>knowledge>> imagination>> wisdom do you feel there is a correlation and transfer of hierarchical information from the cellular or is this possible a new perception on cell control mechanisms which frees us from the limitations of genetic determinism? Your Einstein comments are truly interesting, a question we could ask is 'has Einstein provided us with wisdom or a legacy for knowledge and growth?

    Fascinating topic! Thank you for sharing and most importantly, for the thought-provoking process that inevitably ensues such a post.

    Here is my 2 cents on the topic: imagination and knowledge are equally important, though their relative importance varies depending on the application. When someone is trapped in a cage (even a metaphorical one), imagination is key for finding a way out. However, if that same person it taking an exam or some kind of test, knowledge may be more important for them for that task.

    Perhaps Einstein's quote is taken out of context. He lived in a time when knowledge was very dogmatic and (particularly in the fields of science), something lacking any creativity. After all, science at that time was busking in the afterglow of the innovations of some ingenious scientists and inventors of the previous century, people like Tesla and James Maxwell. With these giants featuring in the scientific books, no wonder people started adopting a very passive approach to science, focusing on knowledge. However, Einstein wanted us to break away from this pattern and be inspired by scientific innovation, rather than be entrapped by it. Hence his unconventional approach to science and his praise of imagination as the most important faculty in our possession. It's easy to go to the other extreme though and neglect the value of knowledge (collective memory) by focusing too much on imagination. After all, imagination in the human brain would be impossible if it weren't for memory...

    Continued: I have written extensively on the subject in different contexts. It may interest you to read some of the neurophysiology - see http://www.pninet.com/articles/Memory.pdf - specifically pages 6 to 10. It should also be emphasized that the brain responds physiologically in a similar way to perceived environmental stimuli and imagined data (stored integration). Innovation and creativity is the integration of existing networks which become wired together based on a unique subjective bias which brings those different networks into focus simultaneously ('neurons that fire together, wire together' - Hebbs Rule for neuroplasticity). Neuroplasticity is the term used for creating new neuronal connections and breaking down redundant one's = learning and change. Neuroplasticity is driven by meaning, purpose, curiosity, reward-gratification, achievement and value contribution.

    Thanks for the tag @Randall Burns and @Geoff Hudson-Searle There's so much to say on this subject, I'm not sure I can do it justice in a single comment. But here goes: I think we need to guard against converting the eloquent neuropsychological functions into scan-based mechanistic representations. In spinal imaging we have shown over years of the MRI scanning that what we're seeing doesn't always correlate on a one to one basis with the clinical reality. 'Vision' like the other senses represents the convergence of genetically determined neural pathways with environmental stimulation. This byte of info then becomes integrated into more extensive networks in our memory banks for later recall and integration = expanding awareness. The expanding awareness becomes our subjectivity which 'colors' the represented entities and all subsequent perception involving those entities - bottom up network creation, top down subjective coloring. Finally let us not equate all human behavior and consciousness to those pretty pictures lest we treat the picture and not the person!

    #7 @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee Thank you fir your inputs on the subject, whist your scientific response is interesting, do you feel there is more than one way of viewing science on imagination, for instance, @Jerry Fletcher memes of data>>Information>>knowledge>> imagination>> wisdom is an interesting way of viewing the world, and although some business schools believe that a pyramid or hierarchy of data > information > knowledge > imagination > wisdom is not necessarily the right approach because it incites too less wisdom, I personally believe this is individual, however, creativity and imagination is not always suiting to be confined to a box of a power point slide, I would be interested to receive your views?

    #4 Thank you @Jerry Fletcher always great to have your prospective and in my house wisdom, counts for everything. Your memes data>>Information>>knowledge>> imagination>> wisdom reminds me of a quote by George Bernard Shaw 'We are made wise not by the recollection of our past, but by the responsibility for our future. These questions may provide some more thought to the memes:
    Where is the Life we have lost in living?
    Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
    Where is the knowledge we have lost in the information?

    "Using clues from brain-damaged patients and advanced brain imaging techniques, neuroscientists have now found that the brain uses virtually identical pathways for seeing objects and for imagining them – only it uses these pathways in reverse".

    #5 Well, I would say this particular novel is surviving the test of time now more than ever!! At the time of its publication it was discredited enough so no one would read it. It remained that way for about fifty years and was only rediscovered in the 1970s. From then on, it has become more and more popular. It is actually one of the main pillars of woman studies in american literature and it is being studied all over the world, including Spain :) That is actually how I came across it!! The themes it touches are super relevant in today's society

    Would you tell that book is still surviving the pass of time?
    I mean, a lot of artistic productions lose impact over time, not because they get outdated by themselves, but rather due to having set a trend or started a movement widely followed so they don't feel fresh when being experienced, despite them having carried the true originality.
    I had that impression while reading a 70's detective novel, now I have watched and read lots of productions in the genre which just embraced its standard elements, long ago set.
