Creative writing is an expressive form of oneself – one’s thoughts, emotions, ideas, experiences, and perception reflecting both the outer and inner worlds in a free manner. Imagination forms the basis upon which creativity blossoms which lends a voice to the voiceless and gives a form to the formless. Creative writing is an art to tap out one’s dormant ability to create words and stories from the depths of one’s own perception. It goes beyond any set parameters or restrictive demands adding one’s own flair to writing that may entertain, comfort, soothe, motivate, inspire and make us feel something new. We become the voice of our stream of consciousness to self-reflect and discover the spiritual aspect of one’s own self.
