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.

    #28 That's my favorite kind of problem, @Kevin Pashuk! I am more of a library kind of person because writers are putting out more books than I can keep up with. I would be broke if I bought too many! And fortunately or not, I am a very, very fast reader. So I go through books quickly. Thanks again for a great post!

    #36 I am a person who believes in free will or choices declares who we are. Not unsupported declarations or positions. I am Christian and it is ok if others choose not to be. It was my choice. If I must describe my Christianity by destroying another belief then I would probably be agnostic. Love Jesus but be sceptical of his detractors and followers. Just find your path and believe in it

    #35 I enjoyed that book too Harvey. He does take a strong position, but whether you agree with him or not, he does make you think about what you believe, which makes the book all that more worthwhile.

    #30 The Atheist who didn't exist. Was my first choice. I am an extreme I that has adapted to public settings. So i enjoy deep thoughts about how folks can declare anything. One of my favorite questions of those who declare something, "Five years ago you were making declarations, Based on these have you arrived at your destination, are you on the same path? Follow up questions would include: What happened to those declarations? How do you think current declarations will impact the next five years?

    The conversation usually doesn't end well because the declarations get exposed as a way to manage current events as opposed to a life long commitment to something. I will let you know about this book, so far, i am enjoying the writer. Whether true or not i am declaring Andy Bannister an I, @Kevin Pashuk.

    #31 The '5 Dysfunctions' is the best book to start with Jared. They are written like a novel, but highly effective at getting the points across.
    Jared Wiese
    14/10/2016 #32 Jared Wiese
    #25 #30 I agree with Kevin on the sentiments, @Harvey Lloyd. Another approach I've been trying is looking up a summary and seeing if a book resonates. Probably works better with non-fiction and could be seen as a spoiler, but I also see it as a way to skim and prepare to absorb as much as I can from the book.

    #29 Thanks for the kind words and thoughtful reply, Kevin.
    I hope I didn't get too "real" as I thoroughly enjoyed the other comments and ideas in this thread.

    #22 Great list Jared. It almost appears that you have favourite authors and devour everything in their collection.

    I've done the same with incredibly funny books by A.J.Jacobs, inspirational books by Phillip Yancey, and leadership books by Patrick Lencioni. I highly recommend all of these authors.

    #20 Thanks Susan. I was ever only scary to my daughter's potential suitors when she was a teenager.

    I have bookshelves full of 'real' books. The list above is ONLY the books I've read on Kindle over the last year. It doesn't include dozens of other titles on my Kobo reader (kind of a Canadian Kindle) or the hard copy books, or the Amazon Kindle books over the previous years.

    I guess I might have a reading problem...

    I went through three of the books and read the Amazon "look inside" feature. It was a little of an experiment. Do Big "I"'s enjoy the same reading materials. This experiment was totally scientific and has an error bias of 2.93855%:) The three sampled books resonated with my big I and i have downloaded two of them. My conclusions of this study is that I's do share some features across the type, as it applies to reading. We enjoy folks who are realists, opinions that can be supported by more than just emotion, humor that is totally detached from any realism, and finally writers who challenge our way of thinking.

    This study along with the rather exhaustive study that Boeing determined a 737 costs eleven cents per passenger mile will still leave you needing five bucks in the latte line.

    Thanks for the reading list @Kevin Pashuk. I am deep into the first downloaded book and appreciate your list greatly.

    #22 Yet, another impressive reading list @Jared Wiese!
    Susan Rooks
    14/10/2016 #23 Susan Rooks
    #21 @Lisa Gallagher, I remember the book although I'm not sure I ever read it. And I am so far from being a true intellectual, it's as though I'm on a different planet. My reading these days is for pleasure, for relaxation. I did my time reading the current books of the day like . . . yes. 7 Habits and all those.

    And @Kevin Pashuk, I understand the allure of a Kindle or other electronic reading device! If I traveled as much as I did 10-15 years ago, I would definitely have one because it would make sense. Since a lot of my work is home-based now, I can enjoy magazines, newspapers, and books the old-fashioned way. But your list is still amazing.

    #20 @Susan Rooks, do you remember the detective and true crime magazines they used to sell in stores during the 70's? When I was a teen I used to buy those and read them. I remember the first book I bought and read because I wanted to, "Go ask Alice." A book about a girl who did psychotropic drugs and had horrible trips from LSD in particular. I can say this much, I never wanted to touch drugs after reading that. I think I was in 7th grade when I read that book. Yes, I'm a true intellect haha
    Susan Rooks
    14/10/2016 #20 Susan Rooks
    OK, so you are officially -- in my "book" anyway -- one scary dude, @Kevin Pashuk! That is a hell of a list!

    On the other hand, I'm probably 30 years older than you are, and I reserve the right to read mostly fiction -- detective and/or other mystery genres -- for relaxation.

    But I did spot two books I might want to look at, and if you hadn't put them on your list, I doubt I would have. So thanks! And you're right -- interesting people tend to be readers.

    PS: I much prefer paper books. Just sayin' . . . :-)
    Lisa Gallagher
    14/10/2016 #19 Lisa Gallagher
    Quite the list @Kevin Pashuk. My kindle is full of fiction books. I also like reading books that are 'stories' of people who've experienced an out of body experience. I have books by researchers on OBE's and consciousness. No one has an answer but my mind has always had this investigative side, maybe that's why I enjoy reading material that has no concrete proof *yet*. There probably won't be any proof in my lifetime. Great topic! Oh and I still read paper back and hard cover books. My favorite paperbacks are inspirational books and yes, some of my fiction books too.

    Me quedo con las librerías. Entrar en una librería y que el librero te reciba y pueda aconsejarte no tiene precio. Es lógico que las grandes cadenas tengan los libros de inmediato pero en las librerías hay valores añdidos que el resto no tienen. Yo cuando voy a comprar un libro lo que menos tengo es prisa ya que lo interesante es perderte en una librería y ver lo que surge.

    Está claro que por comodidad los pedidos online, las grandes superficies y los ebooks están acabando con ellas. Ahora bien, el placer de entrar en una pequeña librería y encontrar un pequeño tesoro a buen precio... ¡Esa sensación nunca será igual comprando online!
    Laura Becker
    07/10/2016 #1 Laura Becker
    Es un debate interesante... obviamente, gigantes como Amazon o Fnac son más cómodos y ofrecen muchas más ventajas, por no hablar de la eficiencia a la hora de realizar un pedido, como bien has comentado. Ahora sí, considero que siempre va a haber "románticos" de las librerías, que van a acudir a las tiendas tradicionales en busca de gangas y ese ambiente (¿intelectual?) que tienen las mismas.

One never knows where these grains of beautiful sand will land, or whom they will affect when they do land and what patterns will emerge. Nor do we know when we write them which statements or words will affect a reader the most and encourage action. I can only say I'm glad you continue to spread your unique 'sandy ideas'. Thanks for 100 wonderful, sometimes thought provoking, posts.

    100 buzzes calls for a blockbuster party @Alan Geller for this bee here has produced some sweetest honey on beBee and made us bees like family.

    You buzzes are not only spring Mr @Ali Anani but are the 4 seasons, cause that's the effect they have on us, it's like even before spring is over I can feel autumn setting in, I can't get enough as time passes so quickly.
    It is so true that you are prolific and forgive me for having not consumed all of your brilliant buzzes as yet, but I will in time( giggles).A time capsule/e-book with all the buzzes really ?? I'll be the first to get my hands on them.

    I want to Thank God dear Mr Ali Anani for giving you the heart of sharing, sharing your ideas with us. And then for allowing us to have known you , for there are a very few like you here on earth who are so equanimous and gracious to share a little piece of themselves to the world.

    Ideas are like a grain of wheat, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains by itself alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. For with an idea another one and another one are born, similar to that of your buzzes. Like the grains on the sands of time that are tossed into different beautiful patterns. If we keep our ideas in our head and do not bury them into the sand , they will not get the chance of being tested with the wind like you said,they must get battered and tested and finally blown to the formation of a unique pattern created by time & nature itself that which is now beyond oons.

    Congratulations on this mighty 100th Buzz 🏅🏅👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻🏅🏅

    #79 @Harvey Lloyd- I bow my head in respect of your comment. It is extremely valuable. Your writing "Time evolves us, but the principals of life stay the same". This is a wonderful statement. I fully agree with you that a buzz or comment in the right time and when we are on the edge of a state a nudge-a mere nudge- may send us into unknown paths. I feel the nudge of your comment right now

    I have enjoyed the few posts I have read and see that you seek deeper meaning within your posts. A post is just in time supply management. The difference, you are uncertain as to where the supply is needed. I can discuss with you philosophically your thoughts and how they may awaken my own or possibly I am at the edge of forming a perspective and your post will nudge me a little right or left. Sometimes that nudge is subconscious and I may not even know you nudged until three days later. Wisdom is a timeless need. Time evolves us, but the principals of life stay the same. Thank you for yours and congrats on your 100th buzz.

However; pressing work for the forthcoming Under 17- Women's World Cup competition has forced me to postpone the trip.

    #54 Stimulating reflection my dear Pascal Derrien - we have had discussion in the collective psyche way before the rise of the Internet, from the halycon days of the 60's. Gerald Hecht posted a picture of Bob Dylan in one of his buzzes dated 1966. Those of us who were 5 years or older in 1966 obviously lived through that very time but in the context of today that was 50 years ago.

    So we know that discourse and discussion has been the prevalent reality for over 50 years and not just the 25 years the web celebrates as its anniversary http://www.webat25.org/ whether it is 20 or 50 years of stimulating discussions, what have discussions achieved when we individually turn the television on - only to see that discussions in 2016 look like they have actually regressed from discussions back in 1966. Back then even the Beatles were singing "Think For Yourself" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UilX-LIyLrQ and later The Who exclaimed "Won't Get Fooled Again" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SHhrZgojY1Q and then the decades went on decade after decade until you and I Pascal have arrived fully alive and alert in this decade we share here together. What happened?

    We must have had 50+ years of discussions where the finger got pointed everywhere but to the person who should reflect most on the discussion, the person who initiated the discussion which is individually all of us - and so Roger Daltry sings "the world looks the same and history has not changed'. When you pose the question "fundamentally today I want to ask this quintessential question" [Quote] - it is the thinker in you and thinker and action within me. For me this is a stimulating reflection for the present moment of who we are now rather than those 50 year+ of stimulating discussions, which is "the same as it ever was".

    As a digital animal I am a virtual cat, maybe not a cool cat but I have literally given myself 9 lives https://twitter.com/CityVP I am definitely not a Digital Dog - the kind that we socially need to train where to poop and that becomes an obedient slave of its master - in that most crony kind of way, but free will is free will and if it is controlled by a pied piper then that is the pied piper's business and not mine to worry about. What people want to do online is what they are free to do, but mostly they don't seem free.

    Tribalism is our animal self expressing itself and here the alternative to being a digital dog (follower) or a virtual cat (explorer) is a digital ape and that is consistent with what tribes have always been - there is no renaissance in that, it is our attachment to the past because not every human being is interested in evolving, they will find the century that their mindset and soul is most comfortable with and remain there - here the tribalism of the Taliban is real yet they know how to USE social media. You said :

    " if you add a bit of tribalism and a parochial attitude to the mix you just obtain a digitally exported version of real life on your screen." [QUOTE from Pascal Derrien Leinster]

    I tend to think that what is exported is a the abject physical reality transformed into the abject virtual reality, again if I choose to live in the present moment then that is my choice, and that is what really makes me a virtual cat, not my creative 9 lives of exploration, all of which ensure that my branded life is cut up into tinier pieces - and perhaps in cutting that up, I get to keep myself. No promise of that in a world predicated and dominated by the psyche of brand identity and playing the brand game.

Perhaps, we have become digital beings, with our unmindful, excessive love for digitization in our lives. With proper usage and interactive connectivity, we ought to behave ourselves and reap the benefits of social media.

I agree with this comprehensive comment and it provides many ideas worthy of further exploration. You wrote "words that this energy is within us" and this is what cyclic triads do.

    Love is an abundance in humanity, that we only skim the surface of love speaks to the potential for humanity yet to still realize this abundance. You will find this expressed in @Gerald Hecht and @Milos Djukic words that this energy is within us - no matter how well it is any of us can express how to tap this energy we cannot get people to express that which they think they are empty of.

    The Power of Three is a reality, as is how certain combinations become a virtuous cycle and certain combinations become a vicious result. http://bizshifts-trends.com/2014/03/19/rule-three-power-three-worked-thomas-jefferson-steve-jobs-julius-caesar-many-others-might-try/ So many a time, less is more, or love is to grow less. If love is an abundance then love is actually more.

    As an expression of love agape love or unconditional love is not an expression that fully releases itself because even the most saintly human being in the world has had a hissy-fit in private. That does not mean that successive generations cannot evolve in the abundance of love - and in the words of the group Yes - "love will find a way" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hrowi4hHz8A

    Love is not a financial bank which is a certain supply of money - there is no interest rate we need to regulate the flow of love - we are just not at a point in human civilization where the systems that bring us education, health and media are built for abundance. Instead we continue in our deficits and even the Power of Three is simply the limitations of what we are able to understand today - but I do not need to deliver a message in three because three is still not free - it is the number at which we understand love today.

    As long as we continue to live in scarcities, limitations and deficits as far as love is concerned, another song speaks to this scarcity in us today which is Eagles "Love Will Keep us Alive" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t6tfTJ4I31g

    @Ali Anani sorry for that little glitch; the sunlight produces thermal gradients that produce "up winds" and "down winds" (in addition to the traditional "4 strong winds"...resulting in the dynamics of clouds and rain, which fall at some point (the "water cycle" as my teachers called it)...and th both the wind and the water "work" on the land (rock) to create canyons, etc...which can in turn contain water, or direct the flow of water, as well as dictate the mineral composition of it...which in turn will partially determine the nature of the plant life living in it, which will have varying root systems, which will can either add to or subtract from the stability of the "water container" in the face of future wind driven erosion, and whose leaves, will change the characteristics of the air (wind), which in turn effects the degree to which sunlight is refracted, etc. which changes the thermal gradients which effects the wind and water, whic effects the rock, which effects the variety of plants , and the triad "spins" and the differing "melodies" of life are different spinning rhythms...#36

Wind energy and biogas are derived from sunlight and so would replace with with sunlight. This fits more with plants growth. Fire is energy and I am not sure if you would replace it with water. This triad shall allow us to build fractal system. For example, earth has rocks. The three major triads are igneous rocks, sedimentary rocks and metamorphic rocks. Then again a triad from rocks: glassy, crystalline and melting and so on. Just an idea

    #40 @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian, "I would know how to high tail it out, some things you don't want to hear." I'm sure you referring to Tom Jones LOLOL!! Oh, that comment brought back memories. I had a murphy bed in my first apartment and every time I laid down to try and sleep I could hear my neighbors (also friends) yelling and moaning very loudly... with no music. I wish I they would have played Tom Jones prior to- so I could have had forewarning. It made it worse because we were friends and I would have to pretend as if I never heard a thing, yet wanted to say, "Can you please TRY to keep your moaning at a minimum and please oil the springs on your bed because I don't want to know when your.......................... ! " ha ha

    #54 omgosh @Ken Boddie, my uncle from another brother, I have seen 'nee used with my grandmother's name and never questioned it. I finally looked it up.. ok GOT IT LOL. You have a great memory, you remembered my maiden name!! My father's middle name was my grandmothers 'maiden name.' I guess that was common to name the first? or last? son with the mothers maiden name for their middle name? My grandmother was a Reid. My sister's middle name is Reid too. If you and your wife visit Scotland again, I would love to face my fear of flying overseas and also cross off a biggie on my bucket list- getting to Scotland to meet relatives and see my dads/grandparents native country, hence would love to meet you and your wife. Does she know she has a niece shes never met? LOL!

    @Ken Boddie loved, loved reading more about you! You sure have led an interesting life. I love the photos of you and your wife. You sound happy and look very happy together. The idea of driving in the desert without GPS and possibly losing your posse is a scary thought. I'm so glad you didn't hurt yourself with that fall! I'm so happy @Michael Hillebrand interviewed you- I was going to suggest you but things have been so hectic the past week or so I forgot. Don't hate me lol. Your so much fun and interesting to interact with. I'm glad we connected on beBee, the land of honey!! Excellent interview.

    When everything else falls...After 2,5 hrs delay, my flight stands ready for boarding.My flight is the last one from the airport today. The only café place at the airport has already shut down an hour ago. You think to use this time for catching up on work. But no, you're at...

    @Virag Gulyas - you perfectly captured the feeling of both being crowded in a group of people and watching that tumble of a valuable object in slow-motion as it finds the tiniest crack. It is as if our senses are so dulled and then sharpened in a new way. So amazed to find that the phone still worked!

    I loved this story @virag gulyas!! When I read this it reminded me on the time I flew to Arizona and I was already nervous about flying. I have a pair of earrings I consider good luck. I'm not sure why but in my frantic state I removed my earrings and put them in the basket. When I went to retrieve my basket of goods I was missing an earring. Immediately I thought, Oh no... this is NOT GOOD LUCK. I frantically searched and could not find my one earring. I then called on the employees who work for the TSA and told them why I needed that earring. They searched frantically and finally told me I could come behind the belt to look. Well, I forgot that I used 2 bins because yes, I removed just about everything except for my clothes to show I was an honest traveler. FINALLY after 10 minutes with their undivided help, I found my earring in the second bin, lying there by itself. It missed me and was calling my name LOL. I had a renewed respect for TSA workers and I also felt at ease to step on my plane. Loved your story. Amazing how one story can inspire thoughts of another. Thanks for sharing this!!

    Virag!! you made me laugh! It's a funny story, I know when everything is going wrong and you just want to wake up the day after... It reminded me a similar day I had and at the end when I finnally got home and felt safe,... my keys fell through the tiny line of the elevator of my house... Horrible hahaha
See all
