Creative Writing ToolsComposite Writing Tools
Ultimate ten creative writing tools
To write a history, a poet or a novel is a great endeavor. I would like to just have a seat on my lap-top or in a comfortable armchair with a stylus, a note book and a nice glass of tea while the words just streamed from my hands to my side. Unfortunately, writing seldom happens this way, except maybe once or twice for a brief history or sequence that I had "written" in my mind for a few long week.
Instead, I use my favourite creative writing instruments to get every item out of my mind and onto pen. So... what are these tools? Firstly, the fundamental low-tech tools: I have written all the accidental articles, post-it notes and sketches on the back of a accidental sheet of hardcover when I thought of the characters.
It is a large 12×12 hardcover laptop that contains all possible contents. I have a separate notepad for every novel I begin. Well, I couldn't compose a longer play without a ledger. Most of my brainstormings and sketching are done by my own hands, so this is full ofcribbles.
One of my favourite novels on writing and creative writing is The Artists Way. Julia Cameron speaks about the writing of Daily Pages. Place it on the side, and then you can move on to the more important work of work. Writing Down Your Solul was written by another of my favourite authors, Janet Conner.
It is about a lower plane of the journal that she calls writing souls and getting to know this part of us all. In the mornings (well, almost every morning) I am writing my Morgenseelenseiten. It is a nourishing ceremony for my own creativeness. I sometimes go further and consider these pages as my early meditations and make profound spiritual writing.
Others day I just keep writing about everything that comes up and working through it. This could only be about what I did last night, but I'm writing. Whilst you do not need to include the spirit aspects that I do with profound writing, it can be one of the most useful tools when it comes to writing in a creative way, taking your own sweet moments, writing in a diary or meditating every day.
The research shows that writing by touch will activate areas of your mind that are associated with memories and images that are not triggered when you typ. It is important information if you ever get bogged down or have trouble working out a sequence. Rather than leaving the keypad frustrated, take your notebook and begin writing the scenes by han.
Also I think that I am writing much better dialogues if I start writing them by handwriting. I' ve no idea if there is research that backs up why that is, but I know that my writing instrument box is a cipher. It may seem evident, but have you ever tried to handwrite, and the stylus you use seems to be slowing you down?
It' so annoying that my favourite pencils definitely make the most important tools of all. I sometimes paint in rose or lilac when it'?s too sober. Attempt to find a few different colours and designs of pen and inks to find what works for you to reach the most creative areas of your mind.
Makes my doodles look more creative or something. In fact, I actually choose the hard copy over the one on my computer because I can see so many words that give me inspiration for other words. I strongly suggest it if you like words and have never leafed through a piece of thin knowledge.
One could use the tools mentioned above to create astonishing creative histories, but even here in the twenty-first Century this would not be exhaustive without the necessary high-tech tools. It' a utensil I couldn't spell without. Last fortnight I had a pupil who had written a newspaper.
He was laughing when I shivered as he tried to enter his typing without a clear button. Wherever and whenever I want. I' ve got a small notebook because I wanted a great handheld one, but a good pen pal has one with a huge display so she can keep several papers open and see them all.
It is an essential utility. I wrote two full books on it, although I am writing my last novel with other softwares (more about this later). Delete, Crop, Insert and Store are IMPORTANT, and without these keys I'm not sure how much I would use. I have had people try to use Notepad or other free text editors, and it's a real upset.
It' going to make your writing lives so much simpler. It' like an on-line copy of my Ideala notebook or my desktop with post-it memos and scrawled, coincidental thoughts, but it's all organised. If you have an ingenuity, find an art, come across a great part of research, you can cut it and store it in an Evernote notation.
In Evernote I have a writing book, and then in this book I have a book for each of my books. It is the most progressive utility on this menu. I' ve begun writing my last two books about it, and so far, I lov, love, love, love it. But there are a whole series of you-tubes, and if you want to post in the long run, it's definitely the time.
