Being a storyteller [Jun. 16th, 2019|09:02 pm]
*~ Katy ~*

I felt inspired by an LJ friend on here to think about the ways in which I connect to my interest in creative writing as when I list my hobbies, I always list that I enjoy creative writing but on reflection, there's a gap between the creative writing I do/have done in comparison to the creative writing that is recognised or that I particularly have to show for it. I did once make a similar post over ways I get creative in lots of smaller ways generally but I'll keep this entry to be specifically about writing and playing around with the written word. I consider myself to be a storyteller. I love to tell a story and share it with others although this can be manifested in other ways too beyond writing.

So here's a list of ways I can be - or have become - creatively connected with the written word.

♥ The biggest and most on going way I enjoy getting creative with the written word is through my journal here. I love to be a blogger in telling the story of my path, people on it and ponderings.

♥ Writing an online interactive story with various plot outcomes.

♥ Short story writing.

♥ Creating various personalised poems for people over the years.

♥ Collaborative story writing projects with a few friends. For instance, there was one where myself and two others took turns to add to a story that got sent in a circle through the mail.

♥ Being creative through telling my story through snail mail letters.

♥ Creating java games that tell an online story with online participation over the outputs.

♥ Various joint online "add a few lines to the story" games, including on here where I once divided my LJ friends list into two filtered teams and then watched two stories unfold themselves beyond the same beginning.

♥ Writing play scripts to tell a story when I were a teenager.

♥ Writing comics as a teenager, too.

My main writing goals are to complete a novel and write more short stories. I need to try and set aside two evenings a week to become creative as often life can be all too consumed by working, chilling out to watch a TV show, listening to music, browsing the internet and so on.

I guess I'm just a storyteller who needs to write down the stories tossing about inside my head much more often than I currently do.
