Creative Writing or Journalism

Lets start with Journalism. The differences and similarities of creative writing.

Have you ever asked yourself how a story comes together? Or asked why in a newspaper the main topic of the story is always in the first paragraph?

The difference between the two are far reaching, and very close together. It just depends on how the 'story' is put together.

In Journalism, one is taught the five W's. Who, What, Where, When and Why. Who the story or article is about, what it is about, where it happened, When it happened and why it happened. Of course these are broad general terms. One would not of course put in an article about an Otter named Clyde, Who he was. You already know from the description. An Otter named Clyde. But what if the Otter named Clyde had done an amazing thing? Such as swim from one side of the ocean to the other. Then you would want to know why he swam that far and how. How his journey had got started, where he started from, and how long it had taken him. The Headline to such an amazing article may appear as such:

An otter named Clyde finished his long swim home.

When you saw such a headline, you would want to know more about the otter named Clyde. It would capture your attention and you would want to know more about him. That's when you would get into the details of the story or article. Why he swam that far, when he started his swim, maybe into a short paragraph into the lives of otters and then back to Clyde. Why he started his swim in the first place. Who set him free? Why was he set free? Who had him and how he had come to have him.

Does all of this sound familiar? It is known as 'Pyramid Writing'. The most important points first, to attract attention and get someone to read your article, then 'The body' of the story, and finally, the ending.

The Two Differences

JOURNALISM

The Differences

I hope you can see the differences. In Journalism it is just the opposite of creative writing. One could say that if you can master ADSENSE you could be a journalist. ADSENSE does almost the exact same thing. You want to draw the attention of your audience right from the start. If you draw them in, they'll keep reading, and the story or article will be a winner. Just like in ADSENSE. If you draw someone to your website or hub, they'll keep reading.

In creative writing. The principle is the same, to draw one's attention to what is being written, but in a totally different approach. You start with the beginning, introducing the characters, then the body or 'MEAT' of the story, then you end the story with what happens after the actions have been taken and then you end it. Or not, as the case may be.

Journalism stories may keep going, but the difference in that is that each article will stand by itself as a different story.

What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure.Discuss this statement in the light of general rules for effective writing?

My ignorance of the general rules aside, I would put it simply that this is a purely subjective statement. Unless you mean that physical effort which actually went into the creation of the text(s), the apparent "effort" which went into the production of said work(s) would need to be measured in an appropriate medium. This becomes tricky because what a graduate student produces without much effort at all, an illiterate man would struggle for months to produce, ostensibly. Quite aside from this is the notion that, if we mean to measure the physical effort which went into the production, then does it become statement in fact that hand-written text(s) are intrinsically more interesting than a typographic production of the same ? The reason for the measurement of effort of course is to determine the ratio at which pleasure is produced in reading as compared to the "effort" enacted in its' production.

another solution

Basically, it means that it takes effort to write something others are going to have pleasure in reading.
