Imagination and Creative Writing




Every truth finds its undeniable existence only

in a writer’s imagination.

Imagination, not intelligence,

is the governing power of creative writing.

  1. As you must’ve noticed, I am not much of a creative writer. I write down based on my observation and imagination of things around me. SO I agree with your thoughts here Subhan. πŸ™‚ Great work! Keep them coming!

  2. You are right! In creative writing, it does not matter what amount of knowledge you have, it is taking what you know and conveying it in a unique matter is what you should strive for!

  3. Hi,
    I love this quote from you and really wanted to think about it before I responded. So many people think that writing is a matter of formulizing a sentence, a paragraph, a book after a certain schema and then they have a best seller. That may happen but that is not creativity, in my opionion. Creativity takes place from the world that you have created within yourself. You build that world in your mind and from within you comes words that flow out into a book of literary dimension, whether it is poetry, non-fiction or fiction. You have quoted exactly what I think. It is not the intelligence of a person take gets the attention of the reader, it is the world they live in within their mind.
    An excellent quote, and one that I wanted to ponder over before saying something.

  4. Exactly. Someone doesn’t need to be a degree holder just to write a story or novel. =)

    1. Thank you, Cha. I’m still recovering, the wounds are still there, but I hope I’ll get better soon. Thank you for your kind wish. Lovely day to you. πŸ™‚

  5. Hi Subhan, Creativity comes from God and so does real Truth, His Truth is the only Truth that will last, all others as you said have no solid foundation. Thanks for sharing that Truth!
