Creative writing refers to writing of any form that can be fiction, nonfiction, or poetry. This is not just around the normal academic, professional, technical, and journalistic literature. In this paper, creative writing will aim at describing the human mind using poetic devices. Some of the poetic devices to use includes metaphor, repetitions, and similes among other devices. Metaphors refer to comparing two dissimilar things, for instance, saying that one thing is another. Similes refer to comparing two dissimilar things, for instance, saying that one thing is like another. Repetition refers to frequent use of a word or a phrase to emphasize a point.
The human mind is like a ticking clock (simile). This is because; even when we are a sleep the brain spins stories and starts playing them like pictures on motion (simile), which we call dreams. In other words, the brain converts stories of daytime into permanent memories. As a result, we should not find it difficult to perceive activities of the mind, which happen during the day. Human mind do not only seep all the information available like a hard surface that is dry and in need of water to soak. Human mind (repetition) processes information received to come up with an opinion that is possible to communicate.
Ones information processing is over, and someone wants to communicate the message to others, choice of appropriate language is essential. Even when one is working in a street that is furnace (metaphor), the mind is always at work to ensure that the necessary information or message passes to the intended person. Human mind has several options to use in passing a message. These options include the use of signs, symbols, among several options. Through all this ways, a sound decision passes to a target group.
