Creative writing is considered to be any writing, fiction, poetry, or non-fiction, that goes outside the bounds of normal professional, journalistic, and academic forms of literature. Creative writing can be in the form of a novel, short story, poetry, play, or musical lyrics.
Creative writing lets us express ourselves and our ideas, thoughts, emotions, and viewpoints in a way no other writing can. It is about individual freedom. This can be the most difficult form of writing, but also the most rewarding and enlightening.
