Course Creative Writing

What the heck is the difference between creative writing and creative thinking? Course Creative Writing is a magnificent opportunity for us both to ponder the mystery of such oddities. Let's take some time off to meditate and think about what we are going to write before doing so. I'll abstain from writing gibberish, because then it just becomes SPAM - no one likes SPAM.

You know - I've always wondered why there even needs to be a structure to writing. Look at Arabic and Japanese - without bothering to learn the language - what does it all look like to you? If you answered a bunch of squiggly lines and patterns - then you are correct. Not only is Katakana often read vertically but right to left - they don't even have spaces between each character! Wrap your brain around that for a minute while we are still meditating.

Right. Now that we are done meditating - let's delve deeper into creative writing. The definition I found on Wikipedia explains Creative Writing as a form of original writing used outside of journalism, literature or those boring yucky school textbooks. Basically, creative writers are totally awesome-like. I have an idea - let's write a paragraph from our creative book - inside of our article. o.o

A long time ago, there was a tiny little boy. He was about 2 feet tall and wore a beige shirt, which he wore on backwards. Next to the boy lived an old man - yes, he lived exactly 3 feet to the left of the little boy. Now as the boy was getting up to run to the local supermarket, the old man stopped him and said, "You are supposed to count the distance between us and the supermarket because otherwise I might have to get up and travel the same route. Now, you know what that means, right?" the boy replied, "no." and ran off.

That is what I call creative writing. I didn't really think about it - I just wrote what was in my head. I still think that the best way to write is to improvise but I think that's closer to 'free form writing' than anything else. Hmm, what else was there? If you want to learn more - you must RESEARCH. This is the key to everything. The answer is RESEARCH, not 42.

Now that we have a small lesson covered on creative writing - I would like to discuss with you about the course, but I'm not allowed to speak about it. How are you supposed to know what it is, you ask? The answer is very simple. You must look beyond what you learned so far. In Bruce Lee's words, "Don't think, FEEL!"
