A lot of what I write is creative but it isn't. That is, the whole "staff news writer" thing at Nintendo World Report.
I spend a lot of my free time writing news, writing reviews, or playing games for that site. You can see a lot of my work up there. I'd very much argue that that is creative, but very structured.
Pretty much anything that you write could technically be considered creative writing. Even note taking can be creative. It's all about what kind of spin you put on it. What you do to make it your own. Hopefully my work at NWR is unique and wholly my own. If not, then my tenure in video games journalism will be brief.
I'd like to think I'm on my way to having a unique voice at NWR.
In one of my literature classes I'm reading Don Quixote. I won't lie, I'm not reading it with my class.
I was in a production of the musical based on Cervantes' work, Man of La Mancha, in high school. I thought it was a really awesome story and then made it my business to find it and read it. At the library where I worked, we had two different English translations of Don Quixote. Sadly, both of them sucked. I've been very negative towards ever reading a translated version since.
I'd sooner rather read the Spanish version than read a shoddy translation.
I should probably stop being so damn stubborn.
