    I personally found the plot of the film, The Departed extremely relevant for the concept of belonging. In my own story, I will probably talk about that type of story, e.g. gangs, interaction among gangs, betrayal, acceptance, brotherhood and etc.

    The only thing I remember about the Department was that I thought it was a shit movie because everyone died.

    I personally found it pretty intriguing. It was a poor ending but the rest of the film offset that.

    Re: Belonging Creative Writing Ideas

    Hi
    i actually asked my teacher about writing a creative writing piece on schoolies, and however it makes sense and can fit perfectly, the concept behind schoolies..getting pissed..roots etc is very loose in a way that it is just for fun basically. I would say to go away from the schoolies idea just because it wouldnt stand out in the large scheme of things. Try searching on the net for related texts, other belonging essays and go from there, thats what i would advise
    hope it helped

    Re: Belonging Creative Writing Ideas

    Read some books or watch some movies, take ideas from that.

    Plot out at least 2 characters, if you have more then 2 for a short story dont flood them all in at once or the reader will get a bit confused. Plot the complication, how will the story convey belonging? just think of these write down ideas as them come and the rest should come for you then just write a story. Make sure your statment about belonging stands out even draw on persoanl experiences if you have to, they normaly help alot more than anything else.

    my teacher told me that about 75% of creative writing pieces are on teenage angst ie girl/boyfriends,personal tragedies car accidents,cancer etc,shcoolies and picking up chicks.so it moght be a bit cliche if you write about schoolies,but i guess if its REALLY good you can make it work

    Re: Belonging Creative Writing Ideas

    i think that gang idea is pretty good. in general i think its good to think outside the box. like in the hsc the markers are going to be bored of similar responses and a unique intriguing piece could set you apart

    I did something very similar to that for my year 11 yearly exam. Our story had to focus on 'dystopias' though, so the story was quite pessimistic. About a baby in a womb, and its thought processes through the experience of giving birth. My ideas stemmed from absurdist drama and postmodernism, and it was really obscure, but i got 25/25- so go for it!!

    Re: Belonging Creative Writing Ideas

    why not trying to use the plot of an orphan child? like start off with how perfect her life is with her family and parents etc and then at the end be like but i sit in this orphanage wishing it would be one day :S lol

    or you could talk about bullying?
    and hav a moral behind it about rascism or sumthin?

    Just remember, it's not really ideas that are cliche, it's the language that makes the ideas seem cliche.

    Re: Belonging Creative Writing Ideas

    omg DO NOT ANALYSE A FILM.

    this is becoz teachers look at it as an "easy way out" and it significantly influences their marking

    the best related materials would be critiques, peoms, novels, and articles

    Re: Belonging Creative Writing Ideas

    basically- i know this is cliche- but i've always been toldd to write about what you know or experience....although it might not always seem interesting- the marks in creative writing are rarely in the overall complexity of the idea...but in the detail and language of how you write about the incident- no matter how trivial or complex it is...

    i love the idea of the whole giving birth...from the view of the baby....
    i think it would be a very interesting piece of writing to read...

    i'm a bit stuck for something original to write about so i think i'll just write about a forced distancing from a familiar setting....any one else have any better ideas?

    I hate to go off topic, but films aren't the easy way out. Films can be very complex and deep, and seem extremely difficult when compared to something like a Leunig cartoon.

    Re: Belonging Creative Writing Ideas

    true, that would be a good read. if you can find a way not to make it too gross out.

    i dont know what to do for belonging. perhaps a first day at school in kindergarten - cliched, yes, but cliches are in the language: and it'll be written stream of consciousness (as i always do) from the kids perspective. From like a 5 year old perspective would be SO cool.
