When given creative freedom to write a story based upon a personal experience, how should one put onto paper something that is experienced through the senses and emotions felt during such an experience?
Creative writing, and creative freedom in writing, is a gift that should be savored just as one would savor a delicious and expensive dish at a fine restaurant. The meal should not be rushed, but yet each bite should be taken and held in the mouth until every taste bud has had its opportunity to relish in the fineness of the delicacy being served. Perhaps the above explanation answered the question in a way that exemplifies how one should put emotions or experiences onto paper when expressing themselves in written form. Words are a gift. Creative writing should began with a mental exercise of the imagination of the writer during which the writer should conjure up the experience as it was felt in the very moment it happened. They should allow themselves to slowly digest this experience by focusing on one sense at a time. For instance, if one is writing about a terrible car accident that changed their lives forever, they would imagine first the sounds of the accident as they remember it. The screeching halt of tires or the shattering of glass would be examples of this sensory information. The writer should continue on and try and conjure up the smells such as that of burning rubber, and the feeling of the weight of the force against their chest. They may remember the sight of the smoke from the rubber tires against the pavement slowly clearing the air as shards of glass and twisted metal come into focus. This is an example of the mental exercise of recounting an experience before writing. Once the writer has allowed each sense to recount the experience, then the writing should begin. From this vantage point, the writer's work becomes incredibly detailed and personal. The reader should find themselves there with the writer; experiencing each detail as if they themselves were in that very moment that is being written about. Creative writing is an art, but it is an art that can be taught and sharpened as the writer learns to understand their own writing abilities and the messages they wish to convey to their audiences.
Subject: Religious Studies
What is the most widely practiced Religion in the United States?
Christianity is overwhelmingly the most widely practiced Religion in the United States. However, among those who practice Christianity, there are varying views and beliefs associated with the translations of the Christian faith. Interestingly, the different ways in which Christianity is practiced among particular groups, is based widely on traditions passed down throughout the generations. The Bible, which is viewed as the foundation of the Christian faith, is also translated into many versions and has been a great source of religious debate. These debates have lead to lines of division within various groups of Christians.
What is the most basic fundamental rule of the English language?
When writing a sentence, the proper order of the sentence structure would be for the sentence to begin with the subject. The subject is the person or thing that will be doing something as outlined in the remainder of the sentence. The subject should be followed by a verb. A verb is a word that explains the actions of the subject. The verb should then be followed by the object of the sentence. An example of this sentence structure would be "John walked over to the chair". This rule of the English language is very basic but is knowledge necessary to understanding the more complex rules of the English language.
