What exactly is creative writing?

I searched on Google and found answer similar to this.

creative writing defination

I’m quite disappointed by reading this answer even Wikipedia is not clear about it. According to Wikipedia any type of writing outside the bound called as creative writing.

We could say that fiction, poetry and nonfiction are the examples of it. Knowledge of writing prompts are very necessary for  creative writing.

Before you start creative writing:

(1) Get more information about genres and sub genres

There are lot of genres and sub genres in writing. A great author is specialized in particular type of genres only. Novelist write only novels, poets write only poetry and so on. There may be some exceptions like some novelist write short stories and vice versa.

(2) Pick one genre or subgenre in which you like to be specialist

It is not that much hard to pick but as well it is not that much easy. It took someone about months or years to find out their own genres.

(3) Write Regularly

Write regularly as much as you can. This is the only thing which could uplift your writing standard.

Creative Writing vs. Technical Writing

Creative writing is creative itself; but technical writing is logical by nature. Both the writing types have their own rules and styles.

Creative Writing:

1. It is written to educate and entertain. We get pleasure to read it. e.g. Novel
2. It has so many types of genres and subgenres
3. Sometime Follows Given Set of Rules and Sometimes not.
4. It needs basic talent of creativity. If not have such then how could your writing give pleasure to people?

Technical Writing:

1.  It is written to inform or educate.
2. We could say it as copywriting. e.g. sales letter, pitches, advertisement.
3. Technical writer are the highest paid writer.
4. It has its own rules, conventions, Dos and Don’ts.
5.  Formal language is applicable only in this type.

It is simple to improve your creative writing skills by following these key points.
