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.

    Medicinal marijuana could replace Vicodin, Xanax, and Ambien, which would reduce the growing abuse of prescription drugs.
    Forty-four people die everyday from Vicodin, Xanax prescriptions have quadrupled, and Ambien results in 42,00 emergency room visits per year.

    #7 Superb insight @Gerald Hecht. The rule of thumb is to always use the buddy system. If there's nobody else on your wavelength, as your last comment indicates, you could be in for big trouble, whether you're aware of an existing condition or not. From what I've read, therapy of this nature requires a controlled environment. My personal experience confirms this hypothosis. Huxley enlisted a friend to observe and assist.

    #6 @Randy Keho it's funny that you chose this topic (excellent post by the way!)...back when I was an undergrad...one my roommates (who had a gig at the campus radio station) developed paranoid schizophrenia...none of knew what was up with him ...and as we all were "part time psychedelic cowboys" at the time , we were all having "Strange Days" (it's probably what made switch my major to Psychology) --I was reading Huxley one evening and listening to his show...and ... I can't even explain it in a comment; gist: he locked himself in the studio ...and in between playing entire Doors, Pink Floyd, and Syd Barrett solo LP's...he ranted his delusional visions on the air.
    The campus police had to break the door down where upon he immediately took them out (knocked out --not killed) with a fire extinguisher...ON THE AIR!

    That's when it started to get really scary...

    #154 Thanks Rowen for a thoughtful comment. You've captured the essence of what I was trying to say with your statement " There are many who like to play at being a writer,"... My point is that people should first understand 'why' they write.

    As far as an audience goes... a journal or a love letter has an audience of one... but it is writing for a purpose. Comments that are constructive, or try to respectfully put forth an alternative view can also be viewed as writing with a purpose.

    Sorry to make you whimper... but it does make the point most effectively that just because somebody created something, it doesn't make it good.

    You have summed up the whole post in 3 words; "I write to..." You have taken the time to understand 'why' you write.

    Thanks for chiming in.

    #144 Thanks Renée. Good questions. Are Harlequin book writers 'writers'? I'll leave that for other commenters. My key point aligns with a recent post I wrote on posers and pretenders... Pumping out words does not make one a 'writer'... Using words in written form to express an idea, a lesson, or a story does let you IMO, call yourself a writer.

    #142 Thanks Laura. The size of the audience does not matter, after all, a letter may have an audience of one, or a journal which is purely for personal reflection. The important thing is that people do not write for the sole purpose of calling themselves a 'writer'... that is not the goal. You write for a purpose.

    And you are right... you will never unsee that sweater.

    This is a difficult one for me because I think it all depends on what the person is trying to achieve. There are many who like to play at being a writer, yet they will never attempt to write a novel or even something of essay length. I've seen some people put an enormous amount of effort into writing comments, yet they'll rarely produce anything from an original idea of their own - those same comments will often add considerable value and depth to the original post. I've seen manuscripts (and books) which are so poor that I envy the writer's lack of awareness at the embarrassment I feel they should suffer....
    I'm not so sure that having an audience is a good indicator - I've seen posts which I would consider to be absolute trash and they do very well. Many others jump on the latest political/social/media bandwagon and take attention away from more worthy writers (the critical thinkers)...so, like I said, it's a difficult one for me.

    First off, @Kevin Pashuk, that picture! Whimper. You can't unhear a bell that has rung, and you sure as heck can't unsee that picture. Yipes. Not a Kodak moment at all.

    OK, why do we write? I write to help others in terms of grammar. Those posts get a few likes / shares / etc. from writers who appreciate being reminded, knowing that it's actually important to know and use good grammar.

    The posts that get the most engagement, though, are the ones outside my "normal" sphere: reflections and such. They reach an entirely different audience, although there is often cross-over. But those posts come from my heart, whereas the grammar / writing / editing ones come from my brain.

    I sincerely hope that I don't come across as any of the sad terms you used in your headline!

    I always like what you have to say, Kevin. I like to think of myself as a writer. I do an awful lot of it, after all. Bather, drivel... One man's garbage is another man's gold. Harlequin Romance novels are written by writers. I think they are crap, and many others do as well. Does that mean they are not really writers? Perhaps they are just writers with different standards.

    "The Scarecrow"

    "All winter through I bow my head
    beneath the driving rain;
    the North Wind powders me with snow
    and blows me black again;
    at midnight 'neath a maze of stars
    I flame with glittering rime,
    and stand above the stubble, stiff
    as mail at morning-prime.
    But when that child called Spring, and all
    his host of children come,
    scattering their buds and dew upon
    these acres of my home,
    some rapture in my rags awakes;
    I lift void eyes and scan
    the sky for crows, those ravening foes,
    of my strange master, Man.
    I watch him striding lank behind
    his clashing team, and know
    soon will the wheat swish body high
    where once lay a sterile snow;
    soon I shall gaze across a sea
    of sun-begotten grain,
    which my unflinching watch hath sealed
    for harvest once again."~ Walter de la Mare {1873-1956}

Still hoping I might get away with using what is clearly copyrighted material, I checked out the website. This is what I found.

    #2 Funny thing about advice, rarely does it come from listening to other people, only ourselves. Your hope is your hope, your despair is your despair, and so it is with each of us, no? Hope is the more lacking variety media wise these days, no biggie. Life is what it is. But, maybe if we advised people towards hope more... ah, yes, to each their own. Sometimes, I just click off. Makes it easier to hope in such a dark World. Which is ultimately whatever we create it to be, in the end. You, can do whatever you want, how 'bout that? And thank YOU! :)

    Such a beautifully written post, @Royce Shook. Thank you for sharing it. What makes me feel alive? So many things really. Little things, moments that I get lost in. Time with my husband and our canine child. Laughter. Pure, uninhibited laughter. Friends and family and silliness. Fresh air; especially on a cold winter's night or first thing in the morning. Anytime, really. The swell of the river as it caresses my soul and heals my heart. An incredibly pigmented blue sky cast against the hills.

    Like you, writing is my heart's contentment. It is here that I feel alive and boundaries are removed. It is my catharsis and pure joy. It's my zen.

    It's the moments that count...and each one reminds me to be grateful for this day. Thank you for opening your heart to us.

    #20 thanks for the detailed response. I think it has more to do with the chain of events, first get the facts, then decide to collaborate and then factor intent if it suits your method.
    Instead people want to save time and judge intent to decide upon collaborations, in the personal sense it's useful, but as a professional it's better to focus only on facts, intent will be taken care of by a well drafted work contract.

    11/01/2017 #20 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman
    @Devesh Bhatt - 5 stars for this thought-provoking piece. I am especially impressed with your item #3 under the heading NEVER ASSUME THE FOLLOWING. - 3. Another person's intent, it is a dynamic world. Just use it to understand possibilities and prepare for them. People assume others to be judging their intent, it can complicate responses on both ends and make it political. At best it is a hypothetical input.

    I believe this can be a reason why people don't get along. Assuming another's intent is consciously second guessing them, and if the assumption is negative then there is the chance of causing unwanted friction. However, to use it in the best interest of all involved can create a positive force thus avoiding unhappy and angry feelings.

    IMO, one must have a clear understanding of the facts before making an assumption and not base their assumption on another's intent.

    Funny how the English language adapts and changes, or rather how we use the English language. These days, "under the influence" has, for many, an association with overindulgence in alcohol or other chemical stimulants which, should I stare at your image for much longer, will be the condition to which my meagre mind will be reduced. 🙄 My choice is to desist.

    Just recovering from a bout of Influenza Devesh ;) and that pic just aggravated it by a few more sneezes ;) I shall fortify myself and then come under further influence...eventually! :) But that said, Influence indicates Inference. And that takes it into the subjective realm. And to further touch-points of Relativity. In essence, we all end up deriving some sense out of every influence. But who am I to judge what kind? To each his own behind :)

    Life itself can be so confusing. If there is a person who never angers, I want to be a fly on the wall to learn from this person. Recognizing our behaviors is key to growth. I have made many mistakes and will make many more. I can only hope my mistakes become further apart with age and less extreme than some mistakes I've made in my past. I used to get road rage (embarrassed to admit that) but I realized it wasn't healthy or kind, actually dangerous too. I now find ways to pacify myself when feeling a bit of anger on the road and it works. To your point about being influenced by others, yes- whether directly or indirectly we all are even if we aren't aware of it. It's always good to take a step back at times and assess our own values vs. that of someone else's. Just because values may differ doesn't mean a person is bad, right or wrong. I guess respect is another key ingredient. Well thought out buzz @Devesh Bhatt

    Thank you @Ali Anani for bringing this buzz to my attention. You have produced a very thoughtful and thought provoking buzz @Devesh Bhatt. Dr. Ali is right to point out the concept of choices. It is part of my core belief that, as Viktor Frankl says: "Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom." So for me, in spite of all the dynamics of what it means to be human, everything you have outlined in your buzz, everything that is out of our realm of control, we never lose our freedom, our ability, to choose how we respond.
