Creative Writing and Freedom of Speech - is it supported in WA?

Last Update: June 29, 2017

Daily I have seen postings of thought of the day and poems, handmade posters and other forms of creative writing and I thought how creative this world is. I simply love it for all these interesting things that people are able to create.

However, it is sad to see that there are some people who do not like creativity and they do their best to snuff out other people's spark. Isn't WA a friendly community? Shouldn't members be supportive of one another?

If you don't like creativity and do not like the masterpiece you don't have to participate in the discussion.

Imagine you are visiting an art gallery, if you don't like a piece of art, you simply move on to the next one. Only the most crazy and the fanatics start throwing poop onto the art and single out the artist for a witchhunt.

So even though I may not like some of the creative works, I fully support the artists. I applaud their efforts to bring fun and beauty to this world.

I may not like what you create but I defend your right of freedom to create it.

Same with freedom of speech, I may not like what you say but I defend your right of freedom to say it.

So, anyone for supporting my art?

Very good and timely post, Moon. What I love and appreciate WA most for (together with its trainings and the hosting platform and support and community of course),is it's freedom.If it wasn't for that, I would double think if I should stay here.

WA is teaching us a way to financial freedom, it should allow for freedom of expression too.

Glad that you mention University because this is the place for us to grow and learn, test out new ideas, fail and try again and eventually succeed.

Isn't writing a creative art? We are all artists here in some shape or form. We are all working towards a common goal of improving our lives through our art. So having the freedom to create in a given environment is a blessing and should be treated as such.
We should be grateful that we can practice our art here at WA. I know we pay for it but it is so small in comparison to the freedom we get to express our art form of writing and creating web designs.
Well just my 2 cents worth. If u disagree, then that is fine, each has their own opinion and I can respect that.

ps - I am not very artsy, lol. :)

Totally agree with what you say, Carl. WA is a classroom and workshop and a gallery for presenting our works.There is no other place like that.

Writers are artists too, and our words and articles are our works of art. We are all here to learn, and I really think WA provides a great platform as well as the flexibility for all kinds of creativity. The newest platform of SiteContent encouraged us to write and write more, create and create more.

I totally agree with your 2 cents worth, and if I disagree with you, I will write it down here and hope to hear from you, so we can have an intelligent discussion about this.

Btw, I like to hear different opinions because I like to learn new things from people and see things from their point of view, so I don't mind if sometimes people disagree with me. It's a way for me to think out my concept, either further supporting it with new proofs or absorb some of your good stuff for improvement in the future.

Hi Vera,

I like how you describe WA, as a classroom, a workshop and a gallery. I would like to add, as a like-minded community who are all working together towards one goal, that is, to build up a successful website.

Hey Don, thanks for the roaring support! Not all art is good but each should be given due respect!

Yes, I agree with you Moon Just as classical music is not for everyone and neither is metallic rock, due respect should go to their proponents.

Cheers!
