creative writing paper - May 6th 2009, 08:46 PM

so i am so totally confused on what to write about.
i have to write a story either fiction or non-fiction about one of these 5 quotes from "tuesdays with morrie".
  1. "love is the only rational act"
  2. "Accept what you are able to do and what are you not able to do"
  3. "The culture we have does not make people feel good about themselves. and you have to be strong enough to say, if the culture doesn't work-don't buy it"
  4. "The way to get meaning in life is to devote yourself to loving others"
  5. "Don't let fo too soon, or hang on too long."
and i dont know what one to write about.
What do you all think?


"your story is important, your life matters, you are not the only one who hurts your not the only one with questions, your not the only one who dreams, you are not alone, every person in this room, every person who stands on that stage: we are all people in need, people need people, we probably dont have to convince you that pain is real, but in the face of that, we want you ro know that hope is real and that help is real," quote from the Heavy and light intro video.

As sad as It sounds, It sounds like this paper will work If you write about Death. All the quotes fit into the category. Other than that, I'm not sure what you could write about without getting random.


Geek? Nerd? More like intellectual badass.

I could try that. but the funny thing is that i have to write about me learning one of those things. the teacher calls those quotes "lessons"
and i have to write the story about one of those "lessons" i learned.

oh holly i have to correct you on your quote of voltaire. it wasnt from the scientific revolution. he was in the Age of Enlightenment. just thought i would tell you on that.

well ofr the last one you couls write something about a person that had become frineds with someone and she(or he whatever you want) was noticing that her new friend was getting everyone to start talking and people were starting to call her a loser or something. and she he tried to get them to go away and start to be rude to them. and she really dosent want to be seen with them and she end up letting go of them comepletly but then she finds out that she really needs their help but she cant find them anywhere its almost like they've disapeared or something. idk something like that and maybe the situation can be that a super close friend of hers or something has left her sitting there and left the country or something without telling idk i mean i could end up writing this whole paper for you but im also not super positive on what your looking for but i hope this helps in some way

Oh that's such a nice assignment! I'd really enjoy doing it. Personally I'd write non-fiction about my own perfectionisim using the quote "Accept what you are able to do and what are you not able to do" .

That's a really lovely assignment. I'd just take a step back, which quote appeals to you most? So you've chosen your quote. What comes to mind when you read the quote? Anything that has happened in your life? If you're struggling, try to form a fictional piece that could encorportate that quote. If you're still struggling, try another quote and repeat.

i might just do the quote "love is the only rational act" it might work out for me.
