As you already know, Blogchatter is continuously running the course Creative Writing e-Course from March to June 2019, which is the ever-growing, ever-shining bloggers community.
I have enrolled myself in Blogchatter’s “Creative Writing Course”
The first step of the course is to understand the nuances of creative writing where we chat with famous writers on the live sessions and social media platforms of bloggers.
I could not attend all the sessions but I was part of some chats and saw those recorded editions which I had missed. I am writing about what I learned by #Blogchatter e-course in the first step of #CreativeWriting.
It was an opportunity to interact with the famous Indian writer and journalist, Aditya Sinha for the blogger community. They gave us suggestions about how to write non-fiction.
My attention is on what I learned from Aditya Sinha:
By developing your own voice you will become a good writer. When writing in a non-fiction style, make your content interesting to stretch your reader’s attention for a long time. If you want to combine facts with creative freedom, then use ‘Fiction’ in your creative writing using real-life characters. Your writing volume is made up of words of your choice, the way you put these words together.
Internet is a great source, from which information can be found to write non-fiction. Whatever style you are writing, be sure to go through the same enthusiasm for your readers. If you are writing non-fiction then reading is your only reliable source. Do not write on the basis of what you hear. To read interesting non-fiction, you can plan it in non-chronological order.
Who reads non-fiction?
Those who want to learn and hunt for revelation, they first raise non-fiction. Write to them. Sometimes the truth is hidden in a lie, your work is to unveil reality.
Dipankar Mukherjee was another writer who gave us some seriously creative writing goals.
Notes on what I learned from a famous fiction writer.
Entertainment-factor is very important for creative writing, although it varies from person to person. Some people like emotional stories, while some might find commercial stories entertaining.
Get knowledge about the subject that you are reading and writing. Because if you want to write seriously, you need to read. Choose your theme carefully You should be clear who will read your stuff. Think about the ideas that will make your writing stand up. Do not abandon the clarity of your content. Write on the subject, you have some real-life experience. Do not go for this topic only because it’s popular. Give your writing a personal touch. This will separate you from other authors and it will become your USP in the market.
The Importance of Keeping a Writing Schedule If you want to make yourself a productive and focused writer for writing an article of Andalab Wajid I think this is one of the most important tips I have to practice. By assigning 3-4 hours daily to my writing, I can think of reaching my goal.
Mr. Anand Nilkantan was discussing mythological writing with us. No matter what style you are writing to, the way you highlight these myths, it will be important. If this is a widely known myth, such as Hercules or King Arthur, then readers will be less interested in any explanation because they are already an integral part of our culture that most people at least have the basics about them Know If you choose a story or figure that is not very well known, then you will need some expenditure, so long as it is not overboard.
Several sessions continued with Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni, who discussed the process of making the characters, the session of Poissam was interesting in Hindi poetry where the interpretation of poetry was given importance. Kanchan Banerjee came with a session on manuscripts, especially when your manuscript is rejected and then the authors are afraid when they submit their manuscript to the publishers. Kiran Manral told about the importance of marketing of books and smart marketing on social media. The first phase of the course ended with Soumik Pal, who wrote Silver Hair Synes – India’s first scene-story, in which more than half the thriller described by cinematic photographs.
The second step of “Documenting and Understanding” is what I am doing here.
The three-phase will start in June when Blogchatter will provide writing based signals for evaluation.
When I registered for Creative Writing e-Course by Blogchatter, I was hoping to learn the nuances of creative blog writing. I participated in some chat and live interaction with famous and famous writers and learned how to make their writing plan and crafts. I must say that it has been a beneficial experience.
The best thing I learned during e-course is with live interaction with published authors.
