What are the activities to be held before creative writing?

Before writing, it is necessary to present a comfortable environment that can express the inner voice of the individual and create the sense of trust. Because “a comfortable environment opens all senses” (Solmecke, 1992: 10). It is deemed necessary for the actor to be able to engage his emotions, imagination, imagination, imagination, and even dreams for effective participation in the learning process (San, 1990: 573).


Creative drama studies provide the most favorable environment for preparing students for creative writing activities. In the drama environment, being away from note worry of the students makes it easier to create a sense of trust. Thus, the student becomes ready to write emotionally and cognitively. “It can be said that the primary purpose of creative writing activities is to” encourage them to write “in their participation in the work by providing enjoyment of writing activities (İpşiroğlu, 2008: 9).


To do this, first of all, the children will be able to love and be active, and at the same time, all the senses and the game they are in are given. Before each topic to be written, preparation for writing is done with activities related to the subject such as play, animation, improvisation, imitation, dreaming and painting.


During Creative Writing


At the time of writing, the student accounts for the external reality in his surroundings, while expressing his inner world. Writing in this context involves difficulties arising from mental, cognitive, grammatical problems. In order to overcome these difficulties, the student should be encouraged to write, grammar and imputation mistakes while writing, and to encourage the students to be continuously overcome with these feedbacks. The originality of the opinions expressed by the students in the text should be kept in the foreground.


As a matter of fact, the research results of Ülper (2011: 280-300) on this issue support this view. Accordingly, students are asked to provide feedback in the most suggestive, encouraging, encouraging, and praiseworthy manner on the draft texts they write; They want to receive one-on-one feedback from their teachers and they want to receive feedback on their creativity the most. They also want to receive frequent feedback on spelling and punctuation (Ülper, 2011: 280-300).
