Love and Apocalypse; Externalize Your Inner Apocalypse with Creative Writing
Using creative writing, readers are encouraged to make meaning of their experiences by discovering, emphasizing and illuminating changed perspectives. Every character and every story we write is autobiographical. Consider writing as a clearing of sorts. Our writing can transform us by offering opportunities to explore, examine, and understand outcomes from our lives, and to imagine alternatives. You can evoke a sense of justice and peace, not by changing outcomes (usually it’s too late for that), but by changing perspective. This means that though we may have felt like the walking dead at times, we have a chance at redemption. Writing apocalyptic stories can convey a message of change, and even hope.
