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!

The Harvard Initiative for Learning and Teaching (HILT), in collaboration with the Harvard Writers at Work Lecture Series, welcomed Professor Steven Pinker and Visiting Professor Jill Abramson on December 9th, 2014 in a talk at Harvard titled, "Mastering Style: The Learning and Teaching of Writing." The discussion, inspired by the recent publication of Professor Pinker’s book, The Sense of Style: The Thinking Person’s Guide to Writing in the 21st Century, was focused on the teaching and learning of writing, associated challenges, and practical recommendations. The starting point of effective writing, Pinker shared, is for the author to determine a mental model of the communication scenario between the writer and the reader. Pinker shared the “classic style” theory of interpreting writer/reader communication from literary scholars Francis-Noel Thomas and Mark Turner. Classic style aims to help the reader see objective reality, which can be accomplished by focusing on the thing being shown and not on the activity of studying it, as well as by avoiding clichés and “metaconcepts” (concepts about concepts), among other recommendations. Academic writing, in contrast, is frequently written in postmodern or self-conscious style, one that includes apologizing and hedging.

In today's video, "How to Teach Writing, IEW Review & Lesson Close-Up" I am sharing my thoughts of the Institute for Excellence in writing program that I have been using with our 7th grader! It was really important to me to find a homeschool writing program that would teach her the fundamentals of writing without making it boring while allowing her to find her own voice. IEW does all of these things and we are LOVING it! I am amazed at how much her writing has improved in just the 2 1/2 months that we've been using it in our homeschool routine. My 7th grader is currently using the "Student Writing Intensive Level B" and I have "Teaching Writing: Structure and Style."

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?
