do you write because you're a Writer, or a Creative?

butters said:it's not... kind of why i was setting it out like that parallels. but what about the restrictions? is there an equivalency of free-expression? would that be cage-fighting?

Think of each discipline as a restriction similar to forms

And mma as free verse

Each has overlap and adaptation but each should also be studied within the basis of their structire.

Boxing would be something akin to a ghazal  the best ones deviate from the frame work just enough to elevate them above and so on and as with writing a small amount of extra natural talent combined with hard work produces excellence.

Then think of a basic pub fight an emotional angst written outburst

lovin' all these anaolgies

never liked boxing... especially when they have those slo-mo close-ups of sweat/saliva knocked loose and flying through the air. kind of feel that way about ghazals come to think on it

poetry... martial arts for the mind

wait wait... if we get good, i mean really realllllllllllllllly good, does that mean we just sit there and not write because the moment is reduced to the perfect poem and our opponent becomes ourself (or some such shit)? ;P

i will support anyone
who can make sandwiches!!

as a creative art form  

BTW, in my family, all siblings are talented artistically but only my Sister was baking-wise!
I've told her many times
she could open up a custom cake shop when she decided she had enough energies for Nursing.

Iím quintessentially English so sandwiches arenít artistry as much as convenience (well... in the working class anyway. Canít speak for the Conservative party...) and as you know, English people will just about put anything in a butty... Sausages, fish-fingers, crisps, a pie... if itís available, itís going in the fkn bread.

I definitely consider myself a creative, I write, I draw, I paint, I embroider, I knit, I collage, I sew, I'm into electronics and coding (which I find creative), and I've made my own jewelry in the past. Sometimes some of those things cross over. I embroidered a hat which I can make light up in different patterns, though it still needs some work.

I don't consider myself a master of any of these things, they're just things I enjoy and am constantly learning with. I'm not sure I'll ever completely master any of them.

Some people write
to try
to stay
a little sane
trying desperately
by the skin of their teeth
to hold the balance
between sadness
and screams
to tone down
what empathy brings

The Pain

of those silent screams
within the eyes
of those
who are trying to be
Human

:D my mum could cook a lot of basic food well enough so we didn't starve, and i'm sure she had to be pretty creative to make it stretch the way she did... but for the life of her she wasn't great with pastry :D

some of us just grow up making things... is it a result of necessity or children's tv like watch with mother (long years back!) and blue peter? :D

Rabbits Gone Wild

 
Rascally rabbits gone wild game
After midnight; they're at it still
Passions hotter than campfire flame

Skip P. Booty was her name
Likewise his was Hare E. Hill
Rascally rabbits gone wild game

A jackalope only she could tame
When hopped up on the blue pill
Passions hotter than campfire flame

Neighbors heard whenever they came
Shouts spilling in each window sill
Rascally rabbits gone wild game

His honey bunny was quite the dame
Hare could never quite get his fill
Passions hotter than campfire flame

Her gentlemen's night club cotton tail fame
Combined with his rabbit hole entry skill:
Rascally rabbits gone wild game
Passions hotter than campfire flame

Oi! Here we call them 'steak fries'! But you better believe we have them, Britt ( or is that chipbooty?! )!

yes. without writing, we'd all go a little crazy. some maybe all the way to the left-field

so, regarding the original premise, would you consider yourself 'writer' or more a 'creative' or think all labels are a ridiculous construct?
