Description

We can discover the origins of spoken language in the need and, perhaps also, the desire for communication by human beings with other human beings. The origins of writing systems relate to the desire and, perhaps also, the need for a system of preservation and record, that continues beyond the initial verbal utterance. But then, we might ask, why and from what human origin, comes Creative Writing.

We can discover the origins of spoken language in the need and, perhaps also, the desire for communication by human beings with other human beings. The origins of writing systems relate to the desire and, perhaps also, the need for a system of preservation and record, that continues beyond the initial verbal utterance. But then, we might ask, why and from what human origin, comes Creative Writing?

What form of communication or, indeed, preservation and record does Creative Writing offer? What, indeed, is this set of actions, and its results, that we as human beings came to undertake it and, as continues to be the case, to encourage, and quite often admire it?2  Why does this Creative Writing persist, so strongly, across so many cultures, undertaken by some many people, appearing in so many types, roles and locations?

It is one thing to speculate on communication and another to speculate on art. Creative Writing offers an instance of both, almost exclusively built of the most common of human communicative tools – words -adopting and adapting these to a purpose that seems at once universal and  selective,  simultaneously.  To  consider  the  origins  of  this,  what must surely be our most pervasive art – on whose undertaking so many other arts rely – and our most commonly undertaken form of creative communication, would seem a natural action; yet relatively few have speculated on it, and, indeed, most of these have considered Creative Writing entirely in relation to its products, not to its actions. Where it has been considered in terms of its actions, not its end results, the analysis has located itself in a notion of difference or strangeness – but not in the idea of Creative Writing actions as part of our wider human landscape, where we might engage with it not as strange or because we are different but, indeed, because we are human.
