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.

    @Phil Friedman as you pointed out, yes absolutely these people use social media to grab attention. Some kind of narcissistic action actually, they try to wake people's compassion for their selves. Just like we know the people who plot suicide attempts never talk about it to their friends or family members, the people who really need some advice never ask any person, until they find someone who can truly understand them. Thank you very much for your great point!

    26/07/2017 #5 Phil Friedman
    I understand and agree completely with the point you make. What I don't understand is why people who don't want comments parade their personal stories in front of thousands of people on social media in the first place. To gain attention without connection? To offload emotional turmoil onto others because misery loves company? Connection is a two-way street. And if it isn't connection someone wants when they reveal their woes, then for me it's simply TMI. Cheers!

    Not quite as up to speed on the era, but have learned enough to know that our way of life today grew from this era. Maybe in large part of human rights and government authority, but the era was a time when we were sorting through human existance.

    We would do well to notice the similarities of social formation of today when viewed through that era.

    Oh, many of the outcomes then were barbaric in there manifestation, but today the outcomes are much more subtle and have lots of trimmings to hide the results. But none-the-less the outcomes are similar.

    Enjoyed the review of such historic times.

    Nature includes atrocities, whereas atrocities are what we view through the lens of our own humanity. You have written a poem about that humanity but I do not underestimate how atrocious nature can be. If human beings are adding to man-made causes of devastating climate consequences, that is because of decisions that lack humanity - what nature does to counter man's effects is not human at all, it is simply nature adapting. When human beings are no more, it is like saying that dinosaurs are no more - and in that also, nature simply evolves, that we apply human consequence or even morality to nature, demonstrates how self-important we think we are - when the reality is we should be humble, far more humbler than we are today as a human race.

    Geoff is a very talented writer. Anybody that can make a business book feel like a conversation is clearly at the top of their game. If you’re an entrepreneur you need to pick up a copy because it’s rammed full of useful insights and advice about how you should run your business using technology in the modern era. Nonetheless, you’ll also be reminded that sometimes old fashioned methods such as face-to-face and picking up the phone are still just as powerful Geoff has done his home and really left no stone unturned across the wide range of topics, including leadership vs. management, finances, social media and managing personal stress. He gives lots of practical guidance as well as fresh perspectives on some of the major challenges and opportunities facing businesses in the modern era. 'Meaningful Conversations' is comprehensive, well written and articulates many subjects that effect today's new world. www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01MZ96P8T/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1484305287&sr=8-3&keywords=meaningful+conversations

    #22 "People and stuff" -well said @Pascal Derrien

    When I was 11 and at Camp Sachem Boy Scout camp in Antrim, New Hampshire the Camp director was a Poe fan. Every night, while we huddled in dark cabins with only dim flashlights for company, he would play a record over the camp PA system covering all 10 villages and 300 acres around Gregg Lake's north shore. It was a recording of Basil Rathbone reading Poe stories - "The Masque of the Red Death" was a favorite.

    "The "Red Death" had long devastated the country. . . .It was toward the close of the fifth or sixth month of his seclusion, and while the pestilence raged most furiously abroad, that the Prince Prospero entertained his thousand friends at a masked ball of the most unusual magnificence."

    "The Cask of Amontillado" another "The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as I best could, but when he ventured upon insult, I vowed revenge."

    Years later, in my 30s, I found a copy of that record at a library rummage sale -time to pull it out again -Thanks for your comment and for the memories

    Honoured to be mentioned among this group of writers and storytellers @Alan Culler. I so appreciate your stories and style (sorry I sometimes miss your posts). Love this buzz; the beginning, the middle and the end. I will keep an eye opened for future stories from you. Thanks again.

    #3 Definitely all connected @Alan Culler. I always enjoy hearing a story attributed to one culture that another culture claims ownership for. I think this goes back to your discussion of Jung and Campbell.

    Story telling is an art form, that i enjoy, thanks for the tag.

    A story well told captivates the listeners emotion set and they can place themselves in the storyline. I have met a few in my travels and can say that a good story teller can replace the media very quickly.

    I am glad you posted your thoughts it was enjoyed.

    Alan, Some of us come to story from without being from an oral tradition. My father didn't tell stories nor did my mother but they kept me in books from the time I could read. I "grok" science fiction because as a teen I was given a subscription to the Science Fiction Book Club. I'd been through Greek, Roman and Scandinavian mythology well before that and the writer's ability to paint new worlds and cultures with words opened my mind to a new realm. And I got into movies although it took a half-day to go into the city on Greyhound for a matinee and return.

    My ex is a fiction writer. I could never do what she does. But I can write to convince or persuade. I can make people listen to a different viewpoint. And I have a voice that resonates with most people. So I speak and have done so professionally on three continents. (I'm waiting for an invite to Australia) The stories I tell in speaking are ones that make a point like Margie, The Galactic Commander (www.NetowrkingNinja.com) or The man with two wives by Aesop which I use to explain positioning.

    What I've found over the years is that each of us has stories that will involve and intrigue most people but we just don't notice them. You have to want to be storyteller. That opens your eyes. Simply recalling all the sensory input of when and where the story took place will connect your audience. Then just tell the story. Hone it with the next telling. Find the words that connect every time. Make that story a signature--one no one else can tell.

    #3 You're right, @Alan Culler, a passion for stories knows no boundaries! And I've heard some great tales from every culture, it's how we continue our personal and family histories.

    #5 I am likewise pleased to be connected with you @Tausif Mundrawala - I agree listening and empathy would seem a prerequisite for a good story.
