The most important thing to do is experiment; try new ideas and review your work. Try and find a method which is ‘yours’. You don’t have to have a great idea to give your writing some ‘substance’. Try to: Cover it in an interesting way, Have an interesting cast of characters with ‘layers’, Use sensory and emotional language, Make it symbolic. Interesting Way: Wedding from perspective of multiple guests. Characters: Guests are more in love with the couple, than the couple. Sensory Language: Smell of nearby guests. Symbolic: Of high school, everyone trying to ‘impress’. A ‘twist’ is one option, but not always the deepest. However, the best way ...

Of course it is that last part that is the hard part and we have all had the experience of being forced to read excruciating writing because it contained information we needed to extract, or because we were obliged to say something about it for a school report or other learning exercise. So writers need to develop some basic writing skills to make sure they keep their audience reading or listening right to the end – and leaving happy. Share this video: https://youtu.be/syuwXYpV4zA Some people divide writing into creative and technical styles, with creative writing being designed to entertain and technical writing to inform. While that division is true enough, it hides that fact that in the end it is all writing. You can’t inform someone of something if the writing is so bad the reader cannot bring themselves to read it through. No matter what the goal of your writing, it all has to be created in your mind and written down, so it is all creative writing in the end. So let’s look at what writing skills and creative writing techniques are used by writers to produce writing that a reader or listener will enjoy. At the top of the list has to be the basics of language. Using correct grammar and spelling for your audience is essential. That doesn’t mean always writing in the same way however. Writers first need to decide if they be using American or British English. American readers become confused when confronted with British spelling or expressions and British readers just get upset by what they see as the ‘Americanisation’ (notice that ‘s’) of their language. So consider your audience and set your proofing language accordingly! Are you writing a formal or informal piece? The first of our creative writing tips is to use sentence-structures and word-choices that suit the purpose of your writing. Nowhere is this more important than in script writing. The way we speak is not the way we write, so for script writing, think how it is going to sound when spoken. Speak the words and see if they sound like natural speech, or just someone reading out loud. Capturing the spoken word in fiction is even harder and one of the writing skills writers should develop is listening. How do people really speak? What kinds of sentences do they use and how do they change depending on their audience? Good script writing should capture the nature flow of speech, even if it means using repetition or hesitations. This is the way people often naturally speak. A special kind of script writing is the preparation of notes for an impromptu presentation – these are known as writing prompts. Some speakers just like to see a summary of their key points, while others like full sentences they can use, or change to suit the moment. The second of our creative writing tips is to keep your sentences short and simple when writing prompts, since the user needs to be able to grasp the point in a quick glance. Now for the last of our creative writing tips – always choose language that is appropriate to your audience. Nothing stops reading or listening faster than a lot of big words the audience doesn’t understand. Experts have a tendency to absorb their specialized vocabulary and abbreviations so well they then assume everyone knows what they are talking about. Use specialized words sparingly, if at all, and always be sure to give a brief explanation or use them in a way that shows their meaning. You shouldn’t leave your audience discombobulated – wait a minute, what was that?

Creative Writing -http://www.singlishtoenglish.com/creative-writing/ - How to write with flair There are many different types of writing out there. For the purpose of this video, we will look at creative writing and the simple steps to take in writing a creative essay. What is creative writing? It is a broad statement that covers every form of narrative writing from poetry to feature articles in newspapers to novels - the list is endless. Loosely put, it excludes anything academic and technical. Let's look at how to write a creative essay: First step: Choose your subject. When choosing a subject, pick something you and others may find interesting. It may not have to be a subject that you know well, though that helps! If the subject is something you find interesting, but do not know much about, research it! That will be Step 2: All good writers research the background to their essay/story/novel, etc. If need be, talk to relevant authorities. Ask questions and learn more about the topic. Take some time and mull over your topic. Look at it from different perspectives. Write down all thoughts that occur to you on the subject, relevant or random, it does not matter. You can sift through it later and decide on what you want to use. You never know. You might end up with enough material for more than one essay. Onto the next step, Step 3, where you put down an outline of how, what, when, where and who your essay is all about. This will guide and keep you on the straight and narrow of the story without taking you down a meandering path. Then its time to flesh out these how, what, when, where and who questions as that will build the foundation of the story. Once you have the first 3 steps done, you can proceed to Step 4, writing the story. Using the outline you have set out, start with the introduction. In the introduction, the setting for the creative essay is established. Here is where you establish the place, time and scenery for the main subject of the essay. Next we come to the body of the essay. The plot of the essay is developed in the body. It can be made up of just one paragraph, in the case of a short story, or several paragraphs, when the story is longer. Each paragraph is to showcase one main idea. The movement from one paragraph to another has to be smooth and fluid without choppiness. This is where transitions come in useful. Briefly, transitions are words like 'yet', 'and', 'but' and so on. They allow the essay to flow seamlessly from one idea to another. They are usually used in the middle of a sentence. But, they can be used in the beginning to emphasise a point. I just did that. I used 'but' in the beginning of a sentence when it is usually used in the middle. This lays emphasis on the content of the sentence following the 'but' and shows the continuity of the thought process from the previous sentence. Just be careful not to over use transitions in your essay. Other transitions which we use all the time are words like 'however','also' and 'therefore'. There are many more transition words and I will get into grammar transitions more fully in another video. Finally, (there's a transition for you!) we come to the conclusion of the creative essay. The conclusion is where the whole plot comes together and is tidied up ...or not. That depends on you, the author, on how you want the essay to end. It can be neat and tidy, with a 'happily ever after' like fairy-tale ending or in can be a cliffhanger, where the ending is left shrouded in suspense. The ending or conclusion of your essay is important, so don't rush it or end it abruptly. It must leave a strong enough impact that the story remains in the reader's mind after he finishes reading it. Now that your creative essay is done, check it thoroughly for spelling and grammatical errors. Change whatever does not read or flow right. Think about the effect the essay will have on the reader. Ask someone else to proofread it for you. Very often we miss errors in our own writing that others will pick up. Once your essay is checked, proofread, corrected and checked again, it is done!

Now before I even begin, I must say that I'm talking mostly about academic writing or even business writing. Creative writing like novels or short stories, anything fiction, you can do anything you want. Only always remember: somebody has to read what you wrote so it has to be clear. But academic essays, for example, certain rules you have to follow; you have to be very careful about them. So let's begin. In terms of like the actual way a paragraph looks: you have to indent or skip a line. So let me just make sure you understand what an indent is. This is an indent, the first line a little bit pushed in or you can make sure you skip a line between paragraphs. But don't do both. If you skip a line, don't indent. Okay? That's the main thing. Now, that's in terms of the way it looks. In terms of content -- and this, I can't stress this enough -- very, very, very important: one central idea in one paragraph. Okay? I've seen many people, I've seen many essays where you start a paragraph talking about one thing, and then you go off on a tangent and talk about something completely unrelated. So for example: if you start a paragraph and you're talking about apples, continue to talk about apples. If you go to oranges, that's maybe okay because you're still talking about fruit. But if you start with apples, go to oranges, go to bananas, and then end up with monkeys in space there's a bit of a problem; the reader has no idea what you're talking about. One paragraph, one central idea. Now, make sure that you tell the reader what this central idea is. This is your thesis statement. Okay? It's a very general sentence. All it does is introduce the topic of the paragraph, nothing else. All the details comes after. So speaking of details, we'll talk about details in detail, but all other ideas, all the other sentences, all your sentences with the details must directly relate back to the main idea. So let's say here is your thesis statement; very general, every sentence after must relate back to that thesis statement. Okay? You can't go off to another idea. Everything must support this, must talk about the same topic. Very important. Okay? How long should your paragraph be? Technically, a paragraph could be one sentence, but in an academic essay that rarely happens. But it could be any length you want, as long as you're still on that one topic, as long as you still have things to write and things to say about that topic, say it. If you have four sentences, fine; if you have 10 sentences, also okay. Again, for IELTS, TOEFL, SAT students: four, five sentences should be your limit. You can't be too long because you don't have time and you're going to start making mistakes. So now, the details. Very important to have lots of details. Why is this topic important to your overall idea of your essay? Not only tell me what is the topic, what is the thesis statement of the paragraph, make sure you explain to me why this is important to the general idea of the essay. Give me your reasons. Now, why is it important? And then reasons, why you think what you're saying supports this idea. Examples, always use examples because giving me the reasons is okay; examples make me see exactly what you're trying to say. Very easy for me to understand what you're trying to say. Now, in terms of flow, in terms of the way the reader can approach the paragraph, you have to have bridges. What is, what do bridges mean? Basically, when you have one idea in this sentence, you must connect it to the next sentence, you must connect it to the next sentence. Every sentence must have a link to the next sentence. This creates flow, makes it much easier to read and understand, and it keeps you on the one topic. Now, key terms. If you're talking about something specific and you have to use a key term, use it as many times as you need to. Otherwise, avoid repetition. Try not to use the same word more than once in one paragraph. Okay? For example: if you're using the word "moreover" in the paragraph, don't use it, don't use "moreover" again -- use "in addition to", use "furthermore", "another", etc. Try to avoid using one word more than once, especially in the same paragraph.

http://creativewritingtutorials.blogspot.com/ Show notes: Creative writing, creative story telling. The concept of story telling as apposed to creative writing is that story telling can be applied to story boarding or film, many of the media age forms of art. Song.. When starting it's very important to turn the critic off. It's most important to generate material to work with and the inner critic restricts that flow. The objective of the writer or story creator just starting a new project is to get the story done, from start to finish. Don't stop to fix anything. Don't sweat it. Don't try to make it better until the first draft is done. The first draft is supposed to be poorly written and have lots of weak spots and problems, but it will be completed and after that then you can go back and work with what you have. You need to work on your story as a complete peace and for that reason you want to create a first draft. When you write your first draft don't fix anything. Creative writing/ storytelling tutorial for the multimedia age. The writing strategies offered in these tutorials can also be applied to podcasting, film work, storyboarding, cartooning, etc. but they are still very much about writing. Writing is an important skill for most kinds of multimedia artists.

Hiya, this is Josh, welcome to the WriteRightRite! Writing tips from Rowling? Why not. (: Before I forget — I mentioned the Mind Palace — here's how to use this mnemonic technique: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3vlpQHJ09do JK Rowling was a recent divorcee, living on welfare and barely managing to cover the rent, and Harry Potter was rejected by 12 publishers before someone finally agreed to give her a chance, (paying her next to nothing by the way). J.K. Rowling now has a shiny net worth of... just under $1 billion.

Imagine instead of starting with minimal vocabulary basal readers, first, second and third grade students are able to read such books as Where the Wild Things Are, The Velveteen Rabbit and Charlotte's Web, respectively. Imagine all students, whatever their socio-economic group, ethnicity or native language (even those at Title 1 schools or those in ESL/ELL programs), all succeeding in learning how to spell, write and read. Imagine a recently completed four-year study by Arizona State University showing one group of students — using a particular method to learn how to spell, write and read — having significantly higher achievement test scores when compared to those using other reading programs. And imagine a method where every parent and teacher can help children develop essential critical thinking skills and instill a love of learning and reading that will last a lifetime It's called "The Writing Road to Reading©," an integrated, multisensory, research-based, language arts curriculum using the principles of instruction in The Spalding Method®.

https://www.primeeducation.com.au/ Even if you think you’re not really a creative person, there are plenty of ways to improve your creative writing. The most important thing to do is experiment; try new ideas and review your work. Try and find a method which is ‘yours’. You don’t have to have a great idea to give your writing some ‘substance’. Try to: Cover it in an interesting way, Have an interesting cast of characters with ‘layers’, Use sensory and emotional language, Make it symbolic. Interesting Way: Wedding from perspective of multiple guests. Characters: Guests are more in love with the couple, than the couple. Sensory Language: Smell of nearby guests. Symbolic: Of high school, everyone trying to ‘impress’. A ‘twist’ is one option, but not always the deepest. However, the best way is to approach it from your view and your life experience. You’ll be surprised: The more you write based on your own experience, the better your stories become. Be interesting. If you were to read a hundred similar stories, what would make yours stand out? Express the world as you see it, not how you see it on TV. Being showy is describing what happens, rather than using telling language such as ‘he did this and she did that’. You can a story entirely through description, and allow your reader to pick up the trail. It doesn’t require any creativity – just an eye for detail. Rather than try and write stories that centre around how you see the world. Things that may seem boring to you are often interesting to others, because they don’t think like you do. You’ll also find yourself using details you wouldn’t normally use. Just remember to not make it a ‘rant’, make it a story about the way you see things, how you process them, and show off your personality.
