    like an honourable point of view Of course we all want to be able to compose work that s uniquely ours and the fruits of our creativity alone We know how bad we d feel if we simply copied someone else s writing and claimed it as our own But the fact is nothing is completely new Everything creative builds upon the works of those who ve gone before us For example think about when a major car company begins designing a new model They may introduce many new features some of which are truly revolutionary in car design and innovation They ll most likely use cutting edge technology to design each new element of the new model But that new car even after all the millions spent and the thousands of man hours of design and labour invested will still have four wheels and an engine It s the same with creative writing At the most extreme fringes of creative writing you might invent new words you might even invent new letters But they ll have meaning in some form Creative writing is about the expression of ideas and emotions Yes it can be as experimental as you want to make it but it ll always return to being about that human expression Creative writing prompts help us explore that creative expression If you re a dressmaker do you make the material from nothing Do you have your own factory that processes the raw fibres into larger pieces of material Unlikely You probably buy material that s already been woven and then make your dress from that If you re a musician who composes using computer software do you write a completely new software program from scratch each time you want to start a new composition It s not very probable You find software that works for you and use it to help you explore your creative music ideas from there If you re a photographer who specialises in photographing buildings and architecture do you go and erect a new building each time you want to take some pictures Do you build a new camera piece by piece No You have cameras you re comfortable using then you find buildings that inspire your photography Would you consider any of the 3 artists described above as cheating or not being original So if you have any concerns about whether using creative writing prompts is cheating or somehow not allowed think again You ll no doubt realise that in fact creative writing is in many ways already one of the simplest and purest forms of creating because we need so little equipment tools or technology to begin So using a few words or techniques as a starting point is even less of a possible concern Mar 16 2015 Uncategorized Comments Off on How To Pick A Topic for Creative Writing How To Pick A Topic for Creative Writing Being creative is a gift to all You have to feel in what

    then write more of this kind of writing These are 5 of the top reasons why creative writing prompts can help you become a better creative writer Jan 9 2015 Uncategorized Comments Off on Creative Writing Journal The Creative Writer s Secret Weapon Are You Using One Creative Writing Journal The Creative Writer s Secret Weapon Are You Using One What s the difference between a prolific creative writer and a writer who struggles to write consistently and never feels they have enough good ideas Actually there s very little difference There are essentially two parts to being a prolific creative writer and writing close to your true potential Both of them can be hugely enhanced by using the creative writer s secret weapon a creative writing journal Here s how Part 1 Having ideas All of us who write are capable of having a steady stream of great creative writing ideas Yes that includes you The main difference between those who have plenty of ideas and those who feel they hardly have any is not ACTUALLY the amount of ideas they have It s the number of ideas they NOTICE they have and how many of these they capture Here s where the creative writing journal comes in By having a creative writing journal close to hand wherever you go as soon as a fragment of an idea comes to you you can jot it down in your journal Just the act of writing the idea down instantly gives it permission to develop into something more If you have the idea in your head and think you ll remember it you re very likely to be disappointed It s not a weakness or a failing on your part we all do the same Accept that you can t remember every glimmer of an idea in your head and begin writing the ideas down That way you re guaranteed to have them to develop in the future into larger pieces of writing Which brings us on to Part 2 Developing these ideas into pieces of writing Now because you ve been jotting down your writing ideas in your creative writing journal when you sit down to write you ll have plenty of material to work from How many times have you sat at your desk or work space and stared anxiously at a blank page or blank screen wondering not just where the next writing ideas will come from but if you ll EVER have a creative idea again By using your journal you virtually eliminate this kind of writers block The easiest way to use your creative writing journal to develop your ideas is to simply scan through the ideas you ve recently captured and see what catches your eye and gives you a tingle of excitement Don t feel you have to work through every idea you write down in sequence it simply won t work ALWAYS go with where the creative energy and inspiration is Pick an

great ways you can use creative writing prompts to give your writing a fresh injection of energy and start seeing more of your writing potential come to the fore Dec 11 2014 Uncategorized Comments Off on Creative Writing The Way To Success Creative Writing The Way To Success Sometimes a word a piece of art a dream will spark inspiration in you All things can serve as great creative writing prompts The most magnificent story can evolve from the smallest or most mundane detail Anything that sparks the desire in you to write can be considered a writing prompt Some writers have a sentence or word come to them from nowhere and out of that a story is born If you use the world around you anything can be a creative writing prompt The need for finding aids to creative writing often comes from having writers block If coming up with your own prompts has become difficult don t worry There are literally heaps of prompts out there You just need to find the best ones for you Take the Internet for instance Do a search for creative writing prompts You will find pages and pages of story starters right at your leisure You have many options available while searching for prompts From starters of one or two words to a brief synopsis of an idea they are available to you Some sites offer daily prompts They will even email them to you There are many books available with nothing but lists of prompts just waiting to be turned into magnificent stories from your mind There are a lot of writers who feel that using lists of fixed prompts by someone else is cheating They feel that all prompts used must be their own But truth be told there is not a creative writing prompt that has not been written about It is the creation that comes after the prompt that makes the writing your own The prompt is not what your creative writing is all about but a jumping off point line for your imagination It is merely what opens the gate to your imagination to your passion and to your thoughts Gazing at a blank page is unlikely to produce any inspiration In fact it will frustrate you much faster There is so much beauty in the mundane details of life that you will probably have better luck taking a short walk outside Observe your surroundings take in the sights sounds and smells If a detail sticks out to you try to imagine the story behind it A smell or sound might trigger a memory or a character that has been hiding in your mind Memories can be great prompts Try to think through some simple memories a chaotic trip to the grocery store the first time you rode a bike There could be a story within them Make sure you have a notebook with you These inspirations can leave you as quickly as they show up It s important to write them down before they re gone forever Many writers only use creative aids for writing from outside sources They are given to them by editors and publishers telling the writer what they want them to write about Some writers work more efficiently this way being given the idea and running with it Others prefer using their own Creative writing prompts not only help initiate ideas they also help spark your memory for you to write about your own past experiences and adventures You can use them for writings on your website or blog A story can evolve from a word that came to you suddenly or from a painting you saw in a gallery Whether the prompt came from your own mind or an outside source it doesn t affect the integrity of the story itself Either way you are the one who dreamt up the details of the story the prompt is nothing more than a jumping off point Dec 11 2014 Uncategorized Comments Off on Finding Prompts to Inspire Your Stories Finding Prompts to Inspire Your Stories Sometimes a story idea just hits a writer An idea pops into your mind and you are off and writing Other times you are not so lucky You sit at your desk and wonder what you will write today On days when the ideas just will not come I like to use writing prompts to get my creative juices flowing I find writing prompts to be inspirational Many of my stories and poems came from something I have heard or read recently Prompts are a wonderful way to jump start your writing You may be wondering where you can find your own muse inspiring writing prompts in the real world 1 Writing prompts in literature Take any book off of your shelf Flip through it and stop at a random page Close your eyes and put your finger anywhere on the page Use the line just above your finger to start your story You can use this method with almost any kind of book even non fiction Another suggestion for finding inspiring sentences is to keep a notebook and pen with you while you read If you find a line that catches your eye write it in your notebook When stuck during your writing session flip through

Writing Prompts What They DON T Give You And How To Get It Even the most experienced and seasoned creative writer can benefit from creative writing exercises and prompts The key to continuing to grow and develop as a creative writer is to keep experimenting trying new techniques ideas and exercises to challenge yourself Using a variety of different approaches and starting points in your creative writing will help you to explore your potential as a writer and keep pushing the boundaries But although creative writing exercises and prompts are a great tool to use they assume one thing They assume that you are willing and able to write Give a writer a creative writing exercise or prompt and they won t necessarily come up with some interesting creative writing In fact many times however ingenious stimulating and brilliant the exercise is the writer won t produce a single word let alone a wonderful piece of writing So why is this What s missing There are a number of different factors that stop us from writing however gifted and talented we are Perversely often the more naturally capable we are of writing creatively the more we struggle to write Here are some of the crucial elements a creative writing exercise or prompt on its own WON T give you and how to get it 1 The confidence to write creatively Talent and ability amount to very little if you simply lack confidence in your writing Build your confidence by starting small and writing little and often A few paragraphs of a story a short poem or a blog entry every day will help you get into the habit of writing consistently Then you can just increase the amount and frequency as your confidence builds 2 The set up to write creatively If you don t have somewhere you can go and start writing within a couple of minutes you ll lose motivation and inspiration Have a designated place for you to write If you don t have your own room or study at least have a desk or chair where you can have your creative writing equipment to hand and ready for you to start writing at a moment s notice 3 The permission to write creatively Even if you think on the surface you re willing to write often on a deeper level you re not allowing yourself to Not giving yourself permission to create is an often overlooked creative block Write out for yourself some positive affirmations such as I deserve to be able to create I have as much right to create as anyone The world needs me to be creative and simply I give myself permission to be creative Practice reading them out loud regularly 4 The time to write creatively Many of us claim we don t have time to spend on our creative writing The truth is we don t make it enough of a priority Start by giving yourself just 10 minutes at the same time each day to spend writing Get up a little earlier go to bed a little later fit it in wherever you can By practicing this routine you ll find it soon becomes easier to extend it to a larger chunk of time each day without impacting the time demands of the rest of your life 5 The motivation to write creatively Even if you have everything else in place if you re not motivated

    old outfit of yours that you asked the tailor or dressmaker to modify slightly so that it is more in line with a contemporary clothing style Well the same concept applies here as well What s on your priority list What is it that is of the utmost importance to you when it comes to writing If you are unsure why not start by making a list of all the things that you feel are important and significant to you After that examine the list thoroughly and take one element or concept from that list Your story is in that list Suppose from that list you feel that Honesty is the most important element for you So be it then and waste no time to latch onto it and get writing You now need to take that word Honesty and create a story based around characters that are defined by the concept of honesty how honest they are how dishonest etc Put a twist into the tale and write about how they were short changed because of their honesty Start making a list of things Now get down to seriously writing your story by making a list of things that could be useful to you Consider the following List down inspirational and inspiring stories that you personally like Watch news channels read magazines or books and make a list of things that you think you could use in your story Just get down to it start writing There are more that enough examples of great writers that force themselves to write at least 500 words every day This is irrespective of whether they wanted to or not but all linked to maintaining a positive writing routine in a consistent manner So if you really want to write get down to it soonest You never know when the real inspiration could strike you Oct 31 2014 Uncategorized Comments Off on Why Using Creative Writing Prompts Creative Writing Exercises Doesn t Make You A Cheat Or A Fraud Why Using Creative Writing Prompts Creative Writing Exercises Doesn t Make You A Cheat Or A Fraud Many writers find themselves in the position of being caught between two stools One the one hand you re struggling to find new ideas and new ways of writing and all you seem to be able to come up with is tired rehashes of work you ve written dozens of times before On the other hand you re not prepared to try any writing exercises or prompts because you feel that s a cop out or a shortcut You feel you should be able to come up with your own ideas and work from the first word to the last not by using anything that s been created by anyone else even if it is just to get started Obviously this is not a very comfortable place to be and doesn t make for a happy productive writer So what can you do Well maybe the creative writing prompts and exercises route isn t the big cheat you think it is Using a prompt or exercise to get you started so you can then set your own creative talents free is actually one of the best ways to develop as a writer to keep your ideas fresh to experiment and maybe most important of all to ENJOY your writing more Under a little closer scrutiny the it s a cop out it s cheating argument doesn t really stand up If your argument is that you should be coming up with your own work from the very beginning to the end then why do you use words that have already been invented Why do you write in sentences Why do you use punctuation Take this a step further even why do you use the recognised letters of the alphabet and not invent your own new set of symbols every time you sit down to write When you use letters words sentences and other recognised ways of expressing yourself through writing you do it because it s a structure you can use to write effectively and easily You don t have to think about which alphabet to use or what a symbol to represent the emotion jealousy or the colour blue might look like With creative writing prompts and exercises you re using the same theory and process You re just using a certain structure or outline or starting point to give your writing some direction and some form Writing prompts and exercises just get you started What you do once you ve set off writing is entirely up to you and completely uniquely your own work So if you ve been struggling for that breakthrough to give your writing the breath of fresh air it needs but have been avoiding using writing prompts or exercises because you feel they d make you a fraud then think again They could well provide the starting blocks you need to take your writing into the realms of greatness Oct 31 2014 Uncategorized Comments Off on 10 Writing and Assessment Prompts For Students From Counting Sheep to Runic Characters 10 Writing

on Creative Writing Prompts The Secret To Transforming Your Creative Writing Creative Writing Prompts The Secret To Transforming Your Creative Writing Is there a magic formula that enables anyone to instantly write the most wonderful writing of their life some tiny technique you can read about then transform your writing overnight Well not exactly But the good news is although each of us are unique in who we are what we write and how we write it there are certain key techniques that all of us can use to improve our writing and to make it easier for us to reach our creative potential more consistently more often One of the ways of becoming a better writer is to use creative writing prompts A writing prompt is simply a few words or a phrase that give you a starting place to write from a springboard to dive into the deep pool of writing talent that lays within you Writing prompts don t tell you how to write which words you should use how long your sentences should be and so on That s all up to your own creative expression The prompt just provides an entry point to unlocking your imagination and this can be invaluable especially during times when you re feeling particularly blocked or short of inspiration Another benefit of using writing prompts is that they gradually make themselves redundant The more you use writing prompts the more easily you ll be able to come up with the starting point yourself This works because your creativity is something that can be trained and developed When you use prompts often your creative mind learns to pre empt what the writing prompt might have been and it loves to fill in the gaps So instead of thinking I m really stuck I think I ll use a writing prompt to get my creative juices flowing you start to think I m really stuck What kind of writing prompt would work to get my creative juices flowing And then you come up with it This sounds too simple and obvious to work but it does In effect your saying I don t think I know the answer to this question But if I DID know the answer here s what I think it would be Because you re putting faith in your creativity to come up with something it will it loves the challenge You ve just got to present it with the challenge in the right way And this is how creative writing prompts can help by training your creativity to come up with new ideas new perspectives and different outlooks in the way you write Start using some creative writing prompts today and trust that your creativity is as deep a pool as you need it to be You ll be amazed at how resourceful and creative you can be in hardly any time at all Oct 31 2014 Uncategorized Comments Off on Generating Story Ideas Generating Story Ideas Generating a story idea can sometimes be akin to a painful birth Every writer has had experience with writer s block But that usually comes in the midst of writing a story There are different techniques for handling that type of block But what happens when you simply run out of ideas Where do authors and story tellers come up with the ideas for story after story creating a seemingly endless supply of entertainment for the masses The key question isn t where do story ideas come from it s Where do GOOD story ideas come from The seeds of stories exist all around us in our everyday lives Many of my short stories grow out of personal experience The true or semi true versions of these events usually serve as fodder for entry into contests I tend to write these stories for inspirational categories But our little personal life experiences can be boring to others especially when we stick to the absolute truth So what about fiction The real world Fiction can find its roots in real life as well For instance a friend of mine is working on a short story about a man who loses his job and goes on a small rampage on the freeway The roots of his story come from a real life event in Chicago Just read the daily newspaper or internet news groups and you have a whole crop of potential stories in any genre for which you write Each story can be purposed for your needs there s always a new angle to be written Writing prompts There is a whole host of writing websites that offer story prompts Daily That s a lot of story ideas for you to look through Writer s Digest is one of those sites Even if the prompt doesn t quite fit what you re looking for look for an angle that does The epiphany Epiphanies are some of the greatest sources for writing inspiration They are those moments in time when sudden realization dawns on us like a lightning bolt It sizzles through our brain and often causes us to stop whatever we are doing to ponder the particular realization and its consequences on our lives One particular epiphany that hit me recently was that middle age is hell Not old age that s a classic misconception my epiphany told me The epiphany came about one day when I discovered that a small spot of discoloration on my leg was God help me a patch of varicose veins I wasn t ready for that It was at that moment when it dawned on me that middle age was much worse than being elderly because by the time you re 80 you don t care what new ailment or disfigurement pops up
