Explaining the Process: Isbah’s Approach to Creative Writing

For me, writing is an expression of love, a channel to ventilate excessive emotions, and a medium to revolt against the social and cultural practices I disagree about.

In this vlog, I talk about the creative aspect of writing. Being a follower of Romanticism, I use Wordsworth’s definition of poetry as “the spontaneous overflow of strong feelings; it takes its origin from emotions recollected in tranquility” to describe the process of writing I practice.

Hope the vlog will serve as a stimulus for reflection on your own way of thinking and writing.
