Childlike Creativity

Are we, who want to create, in some way specially talented people? Or has everybody else simply given up, either by preassures of modesty or laziness, and closed their ears from their inner need to create, until that need has died, forgotten and abandoned? When you look at children, you start to think the latter. I still haven't met a child who doesn't love - or who at least hasn't loved - drawing, writing or some other creative activity.

There is no correlation between creativity and talent. I like to call creativity, divergent thinking. It's just the way certain brains work, for better or for worse.

While some people seem blessed with innate talent, most of what passes for talent is, in fact, carefully honed skill.
