How to Structure Imaginative Writing?

Imaginative or creative writing is always considered as a non-academic writing piece and that is not always true. There are some fields of studies those require to write imaginative piece of writings. Some fields of arts require writing creative piece or sometimes a professional field also asks for creativity even professionals write creatively to convey their message to their audience. So there are things to be kept in mind while you are planning to an imaginative piece of writing. There are two basic things to be considered before writing and structuring of creative writing, first is Think about your audience/reader, second is Structuring the writing;
Think about the Audience/Reader:

Your audience or reader defines the type of your creative writing so first thing is to think about them. Think about readers’ means you need to know and understand their level of understanding about the topic. There are different examples of writers of creative writing a teacher or trainer first think what he would be delivering in terms of creative writing;

· Teacher or Trainer: This writer has to convey his expertise to the reader or audience who are unlikely to have prior knowledge about the topic that the writers want to convey.

· What questions the audience/reader may have: This is the most important thing to keep in mind while structuring your writing pieces it must contain the answers of questions those are likely to arise in reader’ mind while reading content.

· Contrast Questions: There might be some readers who have basic knowledge about the topic and in case of complex topic they have contrast questions in their mind so also include answers of such questions in your writing.


Three-act structure approach is recommended by experts for imaginative writing, that plays a role of writing devise for creative writing areas like TV plays or film. These acts of the approach are not as specific as of a story but a seamless act that is not followed by audience and they could not notice if one is even ended.

This structure is a plotline that contains these elements;

1. Set-up:Identify the characteristics of characters and relate them to each other within the world they live.

2. Confrontation: This is a turning point of an act that previously was a central problem discussed through main character. For example hero of a story who is working on murder case and undergoes into the study of case and supporting characters helps to overcome the problem.

3. Resolution: This is the climax or end turning point of the story, where the characters act the way to take story at peak.

This three-act structure would better work for story writing but for other creative piece of writing can also be structured through this approach but requires different tactics, tactics of presentation or handling character or acts of imaginative piece of writing. In essay writing the colours of story tale are missing so if you are planning to write an essay than think your ideas as characters and use above approach by dealing with your ideas to take them to the conclusion.
