Get Started at Creative Writing

By Daniel Scocco

If you don’t know what creative writing is all about, or if you have an idea but would like to get started, you should check out our latest article on Daily Writing Tips, titled Creative Writing 101. Here is a quote:

There is a common belief that because most of us are literate and fluent, there is no need to serve an apprenticeship if we want to become a successful wordsmith. … That’s what I thought until I tried to write my first novel. I soon learnt that a novel, like a piece of furniture, has its own set of requirements, laws of construction that have to be learnt. Just because I had read plenty of novels didn’t mean I could write one, any more than I could make a chair because I had sat on enough of them.

What does creative writing has to do with blogging? Well, for one thing all bloggers need to be able to write efficiently, and to be able to express and raise emotions from time to time. That is, they need to go beyond the mere facts once in a while (or more often than that depending on your niche). That is what creative writing is all about.

    People that can write creatively can capture the emotions of the reader, to get them to do things.

    This can be useful when recommending affiliate products and increasing CTR on blogs!

    @David Shaw, absolutely.

    @周文, yeah it is close to that 🙂 . The idea is that sometimes you need to go beyond the facts, to raise emotions in your readers. And that is done with creative writing.

    I think anyone can be creative just as long we train our mind to be creative, our brain is like a computer but much better so if we program ourselfs to be creative then we can be better than any computer 🙂

    greetings!

    creative writing revitalizes ven the dormant mind with youthful life and creates such a vaccum in the surroundings that the readers can only feel the presence of the message of the writing.

    I do feel that the creative writing makes a distinction among the personality and it implant a feeling of satisfaction.

    I like this line,”a novel, like a piece of furniture, has its own set of requirements, laws of construction that have to be learn.”

    Anyone I have to agree that reading a tons of novel can make you a great writer. But perhaps its a good practice for your writings

    Getting started as a creative writer is incredibly difficult. One of the hardest obstacles to get past is fear and lack of confidence. Just speding some time writing whatever comes to mind can help you get over this and the practice you get writing will pay dividends in your blogging too.
