A friend mailed me a story by Etgar Keret
just published in
the New Yorker: http://www.newyorker.com/fiction/features/2012/01/02/120102fi_fiction_keret
The story is from his recent book (recent in Hebrew,
upcoming in English) suddenly a knock on the door, full of such marvels. I
recommend it wholeheartedly. It’s a beautiful story on the power of creation of
writing, with the play on words of “Creative Writing” and writing as creation. How
writing frees us and brings life to the world, all told through a creative writing
class. He beautifully shows how people’s writing can speak where words can’t,
and how quickly writing makes an emotional connection.
I feel this is one of the benefits of THINQon. It makes you
write, improves your skills in getting your point across in an interesting way,
and makes you and others think . I feel the same way about music, but I like
the different manner in which writing and thinking develops one, and the different joy it gives you.
I was wondering if people here took creative writing classes, what they thought of it
and if they can say what they learned from it.
