Creativity to me is letting ideas flow. But here is the problem. Creativity often breeds random ideas and metaphors. Sometimes they simply don’t make sense. And, good writing does make sense. “Good writing is memorable,” ~ poetry teacher.
The question is, how to let your creativity flow and still make sense.
Update on 25th:
I noticed how my ideas change based on the input. Let’s say I provide feedback to someone on their ideas. Then, I instantly notice how the advice I just gave applies to ideas of my own. Interesting!
So what did I learn?
Creativity is useful when a metaphor or idea helps to communicate a message to the audience. If the creative part confuses people, change it so that it provides clarity.
Always seek out to give feedback and ask for feedback.
