ROAD TO CREATIVITY



The paper was blank and my pen had stopped moving. I remained staring at the paper. I had shut myself in my room and had my eyes closed; browsing through my brain- what to write? I needed to write something- but what to write?

Should I write about nature or sky- or the moon, or the stars? But these were things that I never found time to admire! Or about love or hate? But, for me, these were games by time, the supreme truth- they need no words to be wasted on! What do I write then? I needed to write something- but what?

I opened my eyes- I came out of my room and saw new words on my paper! I had indeed written something!

Words can never be forced; nor can they be compelled. They come out from nothing and go into nowhere. So all you'll need to do is to open your mind- come out of virtual boundaries! And you shall find yourself floating away- into an endless paradise called- Creativity!

Returned to this blog after a long time....

A simple idea blogged nicely with a nice picture....

You did once visit my blog 'En a smile escapes my lips' nd told me not to force rhymes in my poem.

I did actually think upon it and i am again reminded of it now...
*havent written any poems since then though*

So very true. Words are like dreams. Even if you chase them, you can never really hold them in your hands. :-)

"Words can never be forced; nor can they be compelled." Hmm.. the much feared and revered writer's block. I seem to have come out of recently. And I have realized what my words mean to me- freedom !
