Today, after we get to know what creative writing is and how to start it, we are going to compare technical writing and creative writing.
There are several writers in the world in both categories, and it goes in the mind to hear that millions have made from technical writing and creative writing. Some of them have made their fortunes. At the same time, most of them have made nothing yet.
You can gain enjoyment from both categories, but it would not be fair to say that they both serve different causes. Both of the kids have their own do’s and don’ts, and also they both have their own rules. Both of them are ruled by style and grammar. Both are everywhere. So, you might wonder what the difference is?
As a part of the Professional Ghostwriting Services team Here is what I think, creative writing is written from the right side of the brain, while technical writing is done by the left side of the brain.
A deeper look into the technical writing.
Technical writing is written with the sole purpose of informing and sometimes triggering an individual reading to making an action that is beneficial to one of the writers. While copywriting is not the subject that I am going to be covering.
I have given a lot of examples of technical writing in my older posts. Technical writing is not written to entertain the reader. It has its own rules, regulations, do’s and don’ts, art pieces, and pieces of garbage. There is an art to master technical writing, although it is too branched: online and offline technical writing. Personally, I think that if you are to master technical writing, you should first master magnetic and concise writing that captivates the reader, regardless of whatever it is, creative writing or technical writing.
A Deeper look into Creative writing.
Creative writing is done just for entertaining and educating the readers. We enjoy reading different books and stories, not only because they are essential to read or helpful for us, simply because we get particular enjoyment from reading them, the joy which we can’t get from reading technical writing.
Creative writing has many different genres and sub-genres that deserve a whole section of an article for all of those. It most of the time follows a given bunch of rules and sometimes puts caution to the winds and breaks all of them. In both ways, talent, and skills are somewhat an essential ingredient if you want to write creatively. Of course, writing can be improved by practice and hard work. But if you don’t have the critical talent or skills, your writing would not give pleasure or interest to anyone. Talent and skills both create up creative writing. Hence, they are its constituents.
Are you a professional or a learner for both the creative side of writing and technical writing? If you are one of these so here is the conclusion of the whole post that you may consider reading.
So there’s this, the main highlighted differences between both creative writing and technical writing are the creative writing is solely to entertain with the creativity of the writer, and on the other hand, the technical writing is written only to inform with a formal tone or to incite the reader to make an impression on them to take an action such as to make the reader purchase anything.
For my part here, I would be focusing on creative writing only because it is creative, and I am much more into the creative side rather than the technical side.
