EVERYTHING I’VE READ, WRITTEN, SEEN OR HEARD IN THE LAST 24 HOURS
I have had a few days off work so perhaps the list is longer than usual but here goes:
- Daily Mail Online
- Chapter 1, Cambridge Companion to Creative Writing
- 2 x Red Magazine
- 2 x Hello Magazine
- Messages from Siobhan/Alex/Paul/Carol
- Wrote story on ‘Flat Tyre’
- Wrote about Research in exercise for OCA on my blog
- Had breakfast in a cafe with a friend
- Listened to a self-help entrepreneur on you tube
- Spoke to my sister on face time
- Watched Eastenders
- Read emails
- Read Twitter messages
- Looked at Instagram images
- Read Facebook feed
The question asked is how many stories are contained within the list. To be honest there was maybe 100 overall, only one that I had written. There were news stories on the Daily Mail, true stories in Hello magazine and Red magazine. My friend told me stories of her holiday, my daughters and sister had stories to tell. Eastenders had various stories going on. The twitter and Facebook had stories and of course the images of Instagram told their own stories.
How much of what you’ve read or written or seen or heard, would you consider to be ‘art’?
This is interesting, as up until I started this course I thought Art was paintings and drawings and sculptures. The Contemporary Art Part 1 has opened my eyes to other forms of Art and now having started Part 2 I’m also seeing a different side to Creative Writing as an art form. I’m still not sure yet but I’ve always seen Creative Writing as writing stories, poems, journalism, travel writing and blogging, I’ve never seen it as a form of ‘Art’. Out of the list above, I suppose I think of the Instagram photos as art and the photos in the magazines as art, but that’s how I see it at the moment.
What makes writing Art?
When I’ve written all my stories and articles I’ve never thought of it as art but as creative writing. In my mind writing would be Art if it’s displayed on the wall, or is part of a picture or signage.
How do you, personally, define a creative and artistic piece of writing.
I think something that is creative and artistic is something that makes me feel emotional, whether it be happy or sad, excited or fearful, it would be something that stands out and is unique.
