I read a lot of blogs from a lot of people that call themselves experts. I’m not saying they’re not, because they know a lot more than me. But I have realized something:
SOMETIMES THEY CONTRADICT THEMSELVES
I thought it was odd when I read one blog that says you can tell a amatuer writing by these things (and they give you a list). Then a few weeks later, a totally different blog comes out with their own list, and three items on that list contradict what another list said. And no I will not call these blogs out, because I hate public bashing.
So what is right?
I’m no expert. And thought I like to call myself a genius, I don’t know everything. But as a writer, who values creativity, I only have one thing to say:
CREATIVITY HAS NO CORRECT FORM.
How can a writer be creative and original if they have to follow a blueprint? To everything, there is a rule: “Don’t do this.” “Do this.”
But sometimes creativity DEMANDS that you step beyond the boundaries. Hey, jump outside that dang box if you need to. But don’t let the rules hold you back… nor am I saying break the law.
What I’m saying is…
If you have a story to tell, TELL IT: write it, act it, draw it, paint it, create it. There is an audience for every story, and a media for every audience. So what if it isn’t TRADITIONAL or STANDARD. Why be normal? That’s boring.
