Today, guest blogger Gemma Gaten shares her ideas about how to improve creativity.
Every person is unique. We are all creative in our own simple ways but most of us haven't realised our full creative potential. Some people are trying to unlock their creativity while others give up trying to know in which field they are most creative. Being intelligent, hard-working, and having a nice attitude are not enough to become successful in your chosen career. More than these things, you must learn how to use your normal intelligence in doing creative work.
Adele says: One of the limitations of "rules for writing" is that they are guidelines rather than inflexible truths. For example, some writers may thrive on maintaining a steady, daily routine while others may not write for months then launch into a highly-focused "binge" of writing. Each to our own, always. I encourage people to experiment and discover which methods work for them.
A novel needn't convey a specific message; it's perfectly ok to write or read something purely for entertainment. If I wanted facts, I wouldn't research them through fiction. However, fiction can be used to introduce or explore factual ideas to great effect.
