I came across this sweet link about ways to teach writing and I couldn’t help but get excited. Very often, it takes a consious effort to think outside the box of convention to come up with great ideas.
As rightly pointed out in the post linked above, the current traditional trend of writing emphasises: ideas, organization, conventions and style. People are being manipulated into conforming to the existing patterns rather than being given the chance and leverage to explore their own uniqueness to come up with creative ideas.
The recommendation concerning learning to write or exploring your uniqueness in writing offers three classical points:
1) Be vivid
2) Be unique
3) Be fearless, as in honest.
I don’t think I can express these in any better way than the originator of this concept.
