Creative writing

Creative writing refers to fictional writing or storytelling. Generally, the purpose of creative writing is to produce something which is entertaining, engaging and even personal . Here’s how you can improve creative writing

Read everything you can find

Let’s start with the obvious one! Read a lot! Read anything you find lying around your house from old story books to newspapers. While reading this stuff, pay attention to the words being used by the writer, use of metaphors, adjectives, characters, the plot, the conflict in the story etc. If you come across a word you don’t understand, use a dictionary to find its meaning and then practice using it in a sentence to gain a better understanding of that word.

Find inspiration in everyday things.

The world around you is full of interesting events. Go for a walk and ask yourself questions, such as what is that person doing? What is that dog looking at? Why are those people arguing? Write a summary of something that is happening on the TV or a video game you just finished playing. Write about everything and anything you see, hear, smell or feel! You’ll be surprised at what pops up in your head.

Keep a journal and write something in it every day.

Even if you think your life is boring and nothing interesting ever happens in it. You can write about your goals and inspirations or what you did for lunch today. Anything is better than nothing! One day you’ll look back at these notes and they’ll inspire you to write an awesome story ,you never know.

Don’t worry too much about spelling or grammar. You can fix these afterwards, once you have your story in place. Focus on developing creative story ideas and how wacky your stories can become Schedule some time every day to focus on reading or writing activities.
