the details of the words, but the details of the environment and situation.
Descriptive writing is what, where, when, how and why of a subject or situation. For example, a descriptive essay about a car would explain what it’s made of, why it is appealing, and when it made. Descriptive writing avoids the use general words and uses more specific detailed words that are carefully chosen to create a visual image of what the author wishes the readers to know about the story's subject. The descriptive essay “Fish Cheeks,” by Amy Tan (2013), is an example of descriptive writing that infuses emotions into the reader with symbolism and creative writing that can have multiple

English Vs. Math
To most people English or Language Arts is a creative course and math is just a logical, you get it or you don’t class. My purpose writing this paper is to change your mind. I believe that Math is just as, or more creative than English. I will demonstrate this through a couple of examples.
First, we must understand what is behind the creative aspect in English. Most people consider that English is the, ‘creative,’ subject because of titles such as ‘creative writing’ and ‘creative thinking’ and in contrast there is no creative something in math. In English when we are, let’s say, going to write a creative short

sources of creativity.
When considering the paradoxes presented by Dahlén (2008) this writer is a creative person. Creativity is an aspect of human personality and a component of human development. This writer is very interested in coming up with new ideas or enhancing processes that are no longer effective. For example, this writer was recently asked by a manager in the organization, to look at ways the reporting process for the division could be enhanced to reduce the amount of time a State has to wait for a final report after an audit has been conducted. The normal timeframes were taking up to 18 months to produce a final audit report. By being a divergent thinker, this writer was

I have never before taken a class on creative writing before. I did not know what to expect especially since I took this class in place of another. As an education major I am required to take a course entitled Teaching Writing in the Schools, or as a substitute, a 300 or 400 level writing intensive English course. I decided to take creative writing because I have always enjoyed writing and have considered myself to be a decent writer. I have however learned a lot in this class about writing that I will use for myself and also be able to pass along to my students. The main thing that I had to work on was the use of clichés. I did not realize how often I used them in my writing

Finally I have learning the type of writing I like the best. Persuasive and informational are the two types of writing that I excel in. I am a person who does not think outside of the box; I just focus on the facts. That is why I am not good at narrative writing. There is mostly all concrete material in my head, nothing that is made up or creative. Maybe being not creative is a good thing. All in all, what I do is both good, and not good; including my strengths, weaknesses, and the type of writing I like.
Another thing I notice in my writing is the

the topic and the writers opinion. Proof reading and formatting are also critical to a writing sample because they affect how the author’s main claim is explained. Writers are able to write more effectively when avoiding pressure, given prompts, and evaluate reliable resources to further their opinions.
Writing under pressure leads writers to include all their ideas even though they do not relate to the topic at all, because their mind becomes a twisted story full of ideas. The mind becomes confused when writing under pressure because it just tries to write thoughts down although they don’t make sense. For example, when a writer is suffering from the blank page syndrome, with an essay due

experiences, plans for the future, poems and religious beliefs. Writing is one of the most important skills I possess, because it lets people understand important aspects of my persona.
A person’s identity can be described as the person’s beliefs, characteristics, ideas, values, and uniqueness. Each individual poses a different identity. For example you can grow up with your parents and siblings, but your identity is not going to be completely associated to theirs. When we write our complete identity comes into place, is like using our personal language. According to Swerdlow writing is a fragment of our language “The transformation of language into written words has immortalized passion

Like with any other skill, it takes time and practice to be a master of creative thinking."Critical and creative thinking are interrelated and complementary aspects of thinking. Almost all of the thinking, which we undertake, contains some critical and some creative aspects. For example, when we try to solve real life problems we move back and forth several times between creative and critical reflection as we develop solutions or weigh the consequences of any one solution. It is important, therefore, that any

a large mural or specifically a group project. When an artist thinks of an idea or paints something, that creative idea is based solely on what that person believes or feels at the moment of the idea's creation. That shows that creativity is an individualistic concept and is best accomplished by one person.Literature is another prime example of creativity. Literature, like paintings and drawings, also shows feelings and personality. The author expresses their own ideas, feelings, and thoughts through writing. Although some books are written by multiple authors, most are written by only one. Most of the greatest stories written are by only one author and that is because only one mind of ideas

example of how I learned to write about what I know. The “Wild Card” submission was a creative writing assignment where the class had to write a poem following the guidelines from "Twenty Little Poetry Projects," by Jack Simmerman. This assignment entailed a twenty-line guideline format for writing a poem. An example of the instructions would be as followed: “Begin the poem with a metaphor or simile,” or “Next, say something specific but utterly preposterous.” I found that through this writing process I was able to accomplish writing a poem. To be quite honest, a task I never thought I would achieve. I learned that writing can be fun and free-spirited as well as academic. This poem allowed me to

He also found that there was a higher prevalence of mental illnesses found in people in artistic occupations such as writing, art, and theatre than in people in nonartistic occupations such as business, politics, and science (door). Especially in poets, Ludwig also found that they have “the highest rates of psychosis and depression than any of the other professions studied” (door). There is no doubt from the stacking pile of research that the stereotype of creative individuals being associated with mental illnesses is true. In another 1999 study, Jamison found

I have experience with the scientific method and personally using creative and critical thinking to derive knowledge.

In The Power of Writing by Joel Swerdlow, we are presented to the importance of writing to our civilization. Throughout the years written information has emerged as a primary method of communication. Individuals use whatever is available to write to convey their message. Early forms of writing include carving symbols in stone and bone, written leaves, silk, papyrus, parchment and paper. At the present time writing is used in many settings; for example we have books, text messages, online blogs, lyrics, street signs and emails. There are no limits to written information, and most importantly it can be preserved indefinitely. Writing helps me communicate to others, my identity, creativity and

It commenced when writing was practiced in the prehistoric biosphere as early as 4000 B.C. This, also known as ancient art, advanced through several phases before the use of a written alphabet emerged. Early writing was done in hieroglyphics, or the use of symbols and pictures to represent words in order for individuals to understand one another. Consequently, writing is a creative, cultural and social practice that strengthens one’s knowledge through numerous elements.

I never like peer editing. I was always afraid that whoever read my paper would make fun of it. I became very self-conscience about writing. I never let anybody see my paper. I would just write it then edit it myself and turn it in. Even though I made A’s in my English classes, I still didn’t like what I had to write. The only thing I did like writing about was creative things. When I could come up with the topic and just go with it, I loved it. I love being creative.

According to Kaplan’s data which used(see Connor,2002;Hirsose,2003) shows how writer’s cultural backgrounds influence their writing structure. A lot of people may not argue with Kaplan, the culture is a historical window to the past. People can imagine how life was in the past, they take knowledge and value from generation to generation. People might be proud of their country history and culture and they may want to share it with others.

Oftentimes, teachers rely on technology strictly for the “publishing” phase of writing. Technology, however, can assist students in all phases of writing. Furthermore, technology in writing has branched beyond the word processor to the Internet and social media, as seen by the increased number of blogs, Facebook posts, and Tweets. Technological advances encourage students to share, edit, and collaborate with both friends and teacher around the world (Peterson-Karlan, 2011, p.41). Unfortunately, while research has shown

I think the reason that I have always loved the art of reading and writing is because I have always seen the art of reading and writing as having no rules because even if your teacher gives you a topic and a certain format in which to write your essay It is ultimately up to you what you choose to tell her about that topic and everyone’s opinions and explanations can be unique to that particular individuals experience with the topic given and there is also no right and wrong answer in writing like there are in many other subjects that you learn in school and in everyday life.

For example, the long tradition of "inspiration as divine" will have colored the perceptions of biographers, friends, family, and researchers who might expect some "madness" in their creative companions. Of course, the biases of individual researchers will be brought to the diagnosis of living populations as well.

creating a memorable image in your writing makes flash nonfiction similar to a prose poem (34). For example, “flash nonfiction is more like a prose poem whose voice speaks from an autobiographical ‘I,’ whose vehicle is sensory imagery, and whose tenor is emotional experience” (González 34). Likewise, “the “I” in creative nonfiction is a literary device used to enhance and explore complicated truth” (Silverman 70). One way of doing this is to speak in voice, not voice like how we text or e-mail, but to be personal. For example, diary “voice” is warm, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that it is good artful writing (Silverman 70). It is important to bring the reader inside the experience (Silverman 71

aspect of education. Stafford argues that good writers are not born but are made through hard work and creativity. I agree with Stafford that a person can learn more about a topic through hard work and creative thinking. He argues that, careless of failure he rapidly writes things down on the page and a sense of freedom arrives and if it passes his personal standards, accepts. Only one thing can be changed in his own mind. No one else can aid him. He must listen to his inner self and its fast reacting impulses (Stafford 67).

In one example, IDEO utilized the creative process to design a new and improved grocery cart in one week.

A second constraint that I would like to discuss is a personal experience, which is the degree of knowledge and background pertaining to the given task. In some sense, a wealth of personal experiences on the task may stifle creativity in a way that makes creators focus on what’s worked best in the past, yielding a dearth of uniqueness or originality on doing creative works.

The hook of an essay needs to have lasting impact on the reader in order to peak the reader’s interest and while also summarizing the essay. A balance between these two aspects needs to be in place to assure the reader has no other choice than to continue reading your writing.

The next popular theme Poe uses in his writing is romance. This is very general for all gothic writers. This theme was actually a movement called “The Romantic movement” (Foster).

This exemplifies the idea of Rationalism-- leading the human race to perfection by using the here and now instead of religion.
Puritanism, Creation stories, and Rationalism were the biggest parts of the colonial period. They led America to be more creative and think about their past. Through religion, myths of our past, and reason Americans got a foothold on the beginning of their literary periods.

Additionally, iPad apps help students to work cooperatively and independently. Gasparini (2011) mentioned
