Post Reply Is creative writing really that hard to do?

Not if you have a vivid imagination and aptitude for creating worthy plots. I've never had trouble with creating stories. It was the easiest thing for me to do when it came to school projects. All you really do is vibe off of one idea until you have many little ideas that connect to the big picture.

Coming up with new ideas is creative enough.

Couldn't put it any better myself.

Different from person to person.
But the problems arise if you want money.

Depends on the topic, like in class, writing a love story for me was rather hard but writing a horror story was easy for me.

Yes, it can be difficult. However, my husband is constantly writing some fantastic stories. I work in a technical writing field. That's not to say I can't be creative. I just don't have the drive to create using written word. So, for me, it doesn't come naturally.

Whenever there's writers' block I pray for elasticity in all things made from fiber.

I usually find it relatively easy to come up with an idea, but then I always struggle to execute that idea into a good piece of creative writing, and that is extremely frustrating to me.

I'm not a very good writer and creative person, some people just have the gift to make things creative, but I don't and I always do very bad in my english class T_T

Most writers, like artists, will determine their success based on the popularity of the material they present to the masses. The thing about creatively writing, is that there really isn't any rules just "ways of doing things".

Check this excerpt: of John Gardner's , The Art of Fiction 1991 which describes the no rules application to fiction:


"There are techniques--hundreds of them-- that, like carpenter's tricks, can be studied and taught; there are moral and aesthetic considerations every serious writer must sooner or later brood on a little, whether or not he broods in a highly systematic way; there are common mistakes-- infelicities, clodpole ways of doing things-- that show up repeatedly in unsuccessful fiction and can be shown for what they are by analysis of how they undermine the fiction's intended effects; there are in short, a great many things every serious writer needs to think about;but there are no rules."

Notice something interesting?
This excerpt is only one sentence long.
The idea is that you can put your work into any which way you want. you can start somewhere in a story and end completely somewhere else, that's the power of creative writing. As to answer your question of whether others thought that it is hard, it really depends on the writer, their own constraints, and a persons willingness to try new things. What it really comes down to is if you are enjoying your writing, then it appears to not be hard at all. Good writers write whats mainstream, great writers will write something new that will astonish.

Let me know if this helpful

It is not hard for me. Creative writing allow me to criticize the flawed logic and mindsets from some animated fictional stores. Creative writing also help me to make sense of current events and explore different perspectives.

I'll have to say sometimes because sometimes you have writer's block.

If you have a endless imagination, then it won't be as hard

Writing is easy.

Writing well is hard.
