Wow. Where to start . . . Does your assignment give you any guidelines at all, or is it just "do creative writing"? Your question was posted under Twilight. Are you supposed to write something about this book? Without those answers, I can't be very specific, but I can tell you some things about creative writing.

Creative writing is a fiction form, so stay away from research and reports. Write from your imagination and observation.

Why not write a poem, a rhyming poem or a free verse poem. You could write a poem about anything at all or about something specific you are reading or studying. My students liked to write poems, especially if they thought of them as song lyrics.

How about a rap? I'll bet you could write one with a good subject to work with.

How about a monolog or a letter? If you are reading a particular book, you could write a speech from the point of view of one of the characters, or you could write a letter from one character to another. If you aren't working from a piece of literature, you could create a character and write a monolog or a letter from the person you created.

Another kind of creative writing is description. You could write a sensory description of a place or a person, using the kinds of details that would help someone else see the place or the person. Sensory details are the things we see, hear, feel (touch, not emotion), smell, or taste. There are many things around you every day that would be good subjects for description. Good luck!

If you are doing a creative writing project based on Twilight, I think there are some really fun and creative things you can do. You could re-write a scene or portion of the book from a different character's point of view. For example, try writing the scene when Bella meets the Cullens from one of the Cullen's point of view. Or, write a new scene that doesn't occur in the book. Or write a diary from one of the characters. You could also write a short story about someone's life before the book, or before they were turned into a vampire. Esme's story is never fully told, and she might be fun to explore, or you could explore Carlisle's story much more in depth. What was it like for him to turn into a vampire and not have anyone to help him adjust? You could also explore themes of love or ethics or angst through poetry. I hope that some of these ideas get you thinking and give you a good springboard. Have fun writing!

I see you've already completed your project, . . . but I just let a brainstorm happen anyway.  How about focusing on the scientific aspect of the transformation of human to vampire?  Discuss the semi-transformation of Bella near the end of the novel as well as the scientific probability that she would be able to return to normal as a result of Edward's amazing ability to resist in sucking out the venom.  Maybe you could even discuss Edward's original transformation.

Writers block is such a terrible thing one thing I would suggest would be take a piece of paper and just start writing down random things that pop in your head and take the best from that list and create. Or when in doubt take a favorite story of yours and write as if your characters are a part of that world. For example, I would the Mortal Instrument series as a base and my characters would be someone from the first generation  of Shadow hunters or something along the line. Do whatever makes it easy for your writing to flow! :D

I think the previous post has some great ideas. One of the best things about doing creative writing is that there is no wrong way to go. I think it would be interesting to look at what Edward's life was like when he was human. I think that would shed some great insight into how he ends up being this "perfect" man. I also think it would be interesting to view Edward's existence leading up to meeting Bella. There are so many things that can be done. I think the choices can be narrowed by focusing on things that interest you or something you feel comfortable with. Good Luck!
