Creativity

Standard

What is creativity? It is defined as ‘the ability to cause something to exist’.

Did you know that with every thought that is expressed, something has been created. Question is ….. how do we express our thoughts? I would say through being verbal.  Writing something down.  We look at body language.

We can look at something and as a writer I can create a story out of anything.  For example … let’s say you sitting in a cafe.  You having a cup of coffee.

Could you create something from that cup you have in your hand?

Let’s try it …… Give me a paragraph ….

It is important to know that creativity is a part of us.  So we have to see if you do have this in you.  Don’t rush this.  Take your time and think about it.  Sometimes I get zero, but I will go away and come back later.

Sometimes the best ideas flow late at night when the house is quiet or early in the morning.  Mine usually rush in around 1-2am.  Early I hear you say, but it’s that way.

Now could you do this exercise 🙂

Writing Competitions

Standard

Today I received an email from a website I am a member of advising a short story writing competition.

I was debating whether I should enter and wondered if my story or stories are worthy.  You know what I decided?

YES ….. they are.  I have put every effort into and why not let them see I am capable.  It’s like a musician learning to sing and finally they have to confidence to get out there and show everyone what they can do.

I am proud of what I can do and more.

Now I would like to ask you all who follow me:

1) Would you get involved in a little writing contest?

2) It will cost small fee and you will get a prize for it.

3) Once I get an answer …. I get it organised.

Hope to hear from you soon.
