In my last post, I suggested that understanding our creativity can make our writing easier and might improve it. However many writers believe, that if we would dare looking into the eyes of the muse goddess, we will destroy its innocent. From the dawn of history, creative work has been considered a mystery. The mystery is there in grate works of art. Whenever we will try to analyze this mystery, it will stop being a mystery.
One of my teachers in university, a well-known poet, has refer to this question saying, “I am against mystification of the art”. It was 30 years ago but I was very impressed hearing this from a poet.
The sun set to the sea has always inspired people, and it is still inspires us, although we know the sun is not going anywhere, and it is not sinking into the water.
I can assure you that little can we know about what really happen when we are creating, there is no “danger” that we will understand the minute where our writing stops being a bunch of clichés and becomes a unique, one-time, touching insight on life. No one will become a creator by understanding the creative process as much as no one will stop being one. I found out that trying to understand creativity only empower the mystery.
If so, why bother? What this blog is trying to achieve anyway?
We, that choose writing as a way of life, know that most of the time it is not so glamorous. We have responsibility, deadlines, moments of crisis, we need to meet demands and yet not abandon our troth, and when we are lucky to write whatever we want, we can waste lifetime in searching what it is that we want to write anyway. We can be very miserable.
Therefore, this blog is only trying to make some order, to see our creative voyage from many aspects. No rules or instructions can be found, because every one of us arrives to writing from his or hers origins. We can only give you the questions to ask your selves. If only we would help cope the obstacles every writer is facing.
Do not worry because every time you’ll try to look at the eye of the muse, you’ll find something new.
