Dear Students,

If you feel you have a story inside you, why not write it down?

The Happy Home School Management would like you to participate in the HHS Creative Writing Programme .Write on any topic you want to in English or Urdu. A story can begin from anything because being creative and pretending is part of being human. You can use creative writing to express your own feelings or to entertain others.

What Is Creative Writing?

Creative Writing is original writing that expresses ideas and thoughts in an imaginative way. It’s the “art of making things up”. Creative writing makes you step out of reality and into a new world inspired by your own imagination. With creative writing you’re able to express feelings and emotions instead of facts, as you would in academic writing.

 A Few Creative Writing Tips and Techniques:

Use these creative writing techniques and tips to help you get creative.

  1. Be an Avid Reader

Reading all types of writing can spark ideas in your own imagination.

  1. Keep an Idea Book

Inspiration for creative writing can strike at any moment. Be prepared with a notebook dedicated to writing down your ideas.

  1. Ask What if Questions

To tap into your creativity, ask yourself questions that start with “What if?” For example, if you know you want to write about a cat, you might ask yourself “What if the cat is best friends with a mouse?” or “What if the cat doesn’t look like an ordinary cat?”

  1. Write with Abandon

If you have an idea for a story, sit down and start writing, without editing as you go. Just let the ideas flow out of your mind. After the story is out of your head and onto paper, then you can consider revising it.

  1. Read Your Work Out Loud

After you have finished all that you wanted to write, read your idea out loud to hear how it sounds.

  1. Proofread and Edit

Do proofread and edit. Even though your work is meant to be creative and original, it should still follow standard writing rules of grammar.

  1. Story Starters for Creative Writing

Creative writing exercises can help jumpstart your imagination. If you’re still not sure where to start, there are many creative writing prompts online to give you a topic or opening sentence to get creative with.

For details see the Creative Writing Form in your Google Classroom.

We are happy to share that your Creative Writing will be posted on a monthly basis on the HHS Facebook pages beginning January 2021.

Begin writing in the winter vacations. Ready…..Get set, Go!
