Creative Writing

+ 100 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.

    Why snakes indeed @Chas ✌️ Wyatt. Although I can't say I'm a lover of snakes, like you I have come a cross quite a few through the years, including stepping on one as I was running through the bush and finding one at my front door. One ofthe challenges in Australia is that many of the species will kill you.
    By the way, the animal I fear most is frogs, but that's another story.

    Glad to what's been stewing all this while finally put to paper. Also quite glad to see this was not about a topic that appears to have been talked to death these last few months! As you may know I'm a city boy and don't have a lot of experience with snakes apart from that one black cobra I encountered in the tea plantations of South China and a snake charmer in Jemaa el-Fnaa, Marrakesh. I have encountered quite a few Medusas in my time and found them all rather delightful. Looking forward to Part 2, but hope it's soon!

    I see this routed in the current position Indian society is in.
    Same problem that has troubled us as individuals.

    We see the damage of others and not our own good

    We know what we don't want but not what we need as citizens.

    We pin our hopes on those who would never yield for social good simply because of political economic and yes the most ignored...Social compulsions born from our mindset as citizens as stated above.

    You have greatly moved me to thing beyond my existing beliefs and also remind me of their essence and importance.

    This is a well thought out piece, not that the others weren't, but this is something that the people must read and think.

    Cheers to the thought.

    Excellent poem defining passion. Passion is a strong and powerful emotion and can be anger or joy. A seesaw of intense and tense feelings.
    Preston Vander Ven
    14/01/2017 #3 Preston Vander Ven
    This is a powerful poem. I agree with @Deb Helfrich. Passion is the Force, not the Direction. The greatest accomplishments, good or evil, of man-kind were driven by passion. Passion is what gets you through the hardest times that might otherwise make strong men weak, or make you give up. Remember, without passion you don't have energy, with out energy you have nothing. We can face the right direction all our life, yet without a Force to make us move, we will always be in the same place.
    Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    14/01/2017 #2 Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    There's a lot to ponder in this poem, @debasish majumder. As you stated so poignantly "Passion cannot be an absolute quality"

    There are good and bad passions. And it can be quite difficult to determine the outcome of acting with passion, most especially when groups align under the guise of one passion.

    Passion is a very complicated word, one that does deserve appropriate paranoia.

    #3 Thanks for the feedback, @irene_hackett. Yes, it is true that a writer simply must write, but it is often the process of establishing a peaceful relationship between just writing from your soul and managing the obstacles marketing can often put in your path. As an introvert, I find marketing to be especially difficult when it comes to my books. Promoting others is much easier. :-)

    #13 @Ken Boddie, thank you! I took your advice, by the way. I read your comment and thought "he's right." So when I sat down to write on Saturday and then again on Sunday, I just wrote. And I exceeded my goal both nights. I'm 7 days into this journey and I'm learning to just give in to the words and write. If nothing else, I'm building a spring board for something else. Like I mentioned to Lisa in my reply to her, at the end of this I will have clay to mold. It's my first time doing something like this, but if I don't try then I've already surrendered. Thanks so much for your kind words and encouragement - it is greatly appreciated!

    #12 Thank you, @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher. I can relate to having that fuzzy feeling in your head. I've let many distractions impede me from writing: bad days, bad moods, not enough time, feeling tired - and the list goes on. But this exercise is teaching me a habit and you know what, I am beginning to feel like it's a normal part of my day. I have no outline for what I am writing, it really is stream of consciousness. I don't even know if it makes sense. But, as my friend so aptly pointed out to me today, at least at the end of this chapter I will have clay to mold; which is more than I had when I started. And for me, that's what it is about. Creating the habit, learning the discipline, expending the time. Thank you, always, for your support.

    I don't know you, Laura, but one thing I've concluded in a short time is that YOU CAN WRITE, lady! If I may be so bold as to offer advice ..... I would stop counting words and minutes and just commit to daily writing. This reduces the hurdle to removing distraction and just doing it. Personally, when I'm on a mission I'm in the zone and I keep going for as long as the real world allows. I wish you focus and no distractions. Get on and break a leg.

    Good for you @Laura Mikolaitis! Your an excellent writer, I've always enjoyed reading your pieces. You've got this! I don't plan to write a novel but I do need to set a goal to write more frequently. My mind has been a bit numb lately and it's hard to draw out thoughts when it's so foggy up there. I love how you broke apart the numbers, you DO see this as attainable. One day at time! I will be cheering for you.

    #9 Indeed it is @Graham🐝 Edwards! I love that book by Brene Brown. It's one of the reasons I've been able to accept my vulnerabilities and take those leaps forward. Thanks for your comments. I just put Day 3 of the challenge in the books. It is such a fun experience to just write. I'm trying to keep my inhibitions at bay and enjoy each moment that I get to sit and write.

    Are you taking the write a novel challenge in November? @Laura Mikolaitis is going for it. We'd love to see who else is.

    Thanks @Deb 🐝 Helfrich! I'm really writing by stream of consciousness and honestly, I'm not sure if any of it makes sense but I had an idea awhile back that I used as my spring board. I'm definitely weaving a tale and, if nothing else, at the end of November I will have something. From there, I can start editing and see how it ends up. It's definitely a worth while exercise to keep the brain stimulated. Thanks for reading and sharing with me in the comments. I feel like my last couple of posts have gotten a bit lost on here, but you seem to be finding them - so thank you!

    Yay, yay, yay! I know I am excited to see what transpires over this month of your commitment, @Laura Mikolaitis.

    One thing I know from writing my memoir is that I had to give up my thoughts on linearity. It was a story, it happened to me. I wasn't writing some confusing mystery with all sorts of time jumps. YET. Some days what arose for me to write about was something completely out of sequence. I remember the day when I opened the document - it was around 50 pages. Getting too big to navigate by memory and I thought I was failing..... but I stuck with it, and soon the time to cut and paste and get things in order and develop the narrative arose. Always believe. And don't knock research. Since my book was about my dogs, I had a rationale for wanting to add in some facts. A burst of writing always came after research. That whole fresh perspective thing.

    #1 @Deb 🐝 Helfrich, I'm not sure where the words are coming from lately, but I'm going with it. I've had much on my mind of late and I suspect that is feeding into my inspiration. I've also tried to let my inhibitions go and simply write. And that has made a world of difference. Of course, that also means peeling back those layers a little more each time. But that's part of growing and evolving as a person and, dare I say, writer.

    It must be me, but almost every time you post, I seem to refresh my browser and your buzzes say Now! I am still living with the soup pot, unable to say anything only feel.
