1. Video 1 Intro: Hello. Welcome to a second glass off grating writing. I'm very happy to have you again. Inside the class in this class, you learn how to start writing the right white on how you can get inspired every time you need to write is not as simple as it might seem and to get inspiration daily. So in this class I will show you some great idea to help you to get inspired every time you need to write. So if you think you are interested Ah, hit the blue button Will of the view on a roll now. Thank you, C inside. 2. Video 2: Hello. Welcome to the second class off creative writing. I hope you find it very, very useful. Um, you can find and ideas I teach you inspiring. So you want to be a deter. But the good news and the bad news is that there is no right way to write. You can ask adults and writers how a day right on your show to get at least a dozen different answers. But they were great ways to start with your first trap draft. Um hacer creativity one off these if off these ways, is that it? You may 30 story with something that really happened. A writer's best tool is the question. What if What if I don't go the walk? What if a teacher wasa But that's about as a kiss Worst Naimur. What is? In fact, she wasn't even human. What if there was a place you could go to on the Internet that so magic spells you could put on your class? Make transmits. There are a lot, a lot, a lot of questions you can ask your cells Ah, to hates your creativity and to look for new scenarios. But you may want to start with things that really happen. Sometimes you can amaze yourself with this. Okay? On that way. East Em to To what? A TV show or a movie? Um I think the story again. Think off specific reasons. You like a story. It could be the picture on the cover or the actor who played the lead was cute. Am I think of recent You didn't like the story. Even things. That thing was unbelievable. Pretend you're the writer. How will you fix it? You didn't like the end trade to think off a new one, but make sure it feeds the rest off the story. You think it was too long? What would you have cut out? But before you delayed anything trying to figure out why the at her put it there to begin with. Another great idea is to write the kind of stories you like. If you must ensure a story set in fairy tale times, right, those if you prefer stories about every day American kids trade writing those guys kinds of stories. You can also write our final stories spokeo stories, romances, mysteries, whatever you like on you will do the best with what you like to read Because you know what works and what doesn't work for you. When you are reading, you can notice. Um, you have tourism, right? A little bit every day. It's too easy to say. I write when inspired. But writing is like an exercise like exercising. The more you do it, the easier it becomes. Thinking about your story doesn't count. Try to write at least one page over the next day. You decide you hate it. You can always tear it up and start over. But don't do that too often. Finish what you start a lot off. A would be writers come up with a great beginning. Then they go back on people without beginning day yesterday until they get tired off it. So they start a new story, then fiddle with that one's beginning. And so on on. They never finish the story. But you try toe to write one thing and finish what you start. So this is the day. Meet them. The idea behind this okay them. Ah, Whether you finish the story, I don't like it or you were given up without finishing it. Don't throw it away. Maybe after a little time passes, you might call up with the way to fix it, or you might decide that the stories hopeless but one off the characters is interesting and should be in a different story. Or you might be able to use the setting to go off in a totally different direction. If nothing else, when you get to be a year or two, order, your writings will be like a time machine, bringing you back to the way you think. Now who knows something in the future? But maybe Chef, what you need for one off your stories? Him Okay, So back to those people who never finished story. Ah, lot off writers get stuck in the middle. Many times a story become stuck because the author doesn't really know the characters boil enough. Well, we took it and stuck. Might be to start asking questions about your characters, them questions like, What is it that makes these personal angry? What makes him or hair happy? How about afraid? M virus, What secret? What he be willing to share, or thus he have a secret that he warned, admit even to himself, I am. You might try a having your character. For example, write you a letter, possibly complaining about the story or about your the characters. If your character doesn't have anything to complain about your making thes or her life way too easily on the story could be work boring. Okay, this was all for the video. How you like it? I hope you You you can create a lot off new stories with this idea. Thank you. See you the next video. 3. Video 3: Hello. Welcome to the last video off the glass. And so as the conclusion of the class, I want to give you some piece of advice. Ideas come from all around you. For everything experience in your everyday life. You could see a light, for example, in an abandoned building. I think I wonder who is in there and what they are doing. Why they have the light switch on in this building then, sir, to death could be a great idea for a story. Whether it's a good story or not is up to you. But the most important thing is just to start to take action. Just started. Tried these ideas on, I assure you, you will get inspired. So as the project off the class, I want you two to start on. Write down ideas that may come up to you doing they what ive exercise. Unsure? We does some off this possible. It's scenarios. Who knows? You may get inspired and start your next story with these idea. Okay. He was all for the glad Thank you. Please leave a review like it and take out my other classes. Thanks for watching on.
