Creativity Follows No Formulae

The idea of being creative, when looked at from the point of view of the definition of the word ‘creative’, is indeed evident in itself that there are no restrictions of conventions and formulae to follow for a mind to come up with a creative result. Being creative means breaking away from monotony, breaking away from what is usually expected, coming up with something novel, or inventing your own new way of coming up with a beautiful piece.

You perhaps have been tied up in a box of having to follow a certain procedure as you weave down your book to the final word. You are afraid that you may not indulge as you narrate an exciting scene because you have stuck to the principles dictated by a certain genre.

It may be a conventional way to prove that A + B = C, but if C is finally going to be your answer, then there is no harm in twisting your plot to begin with B and then adding A, to finally get to the C. This is what creativity is all about; the central structure and backbone of the idea are not ruined, but the way in which the facets are wound around the central stem is given a twist, a new look that is more likely to catch the eye than the usual ‘monotonous’ one. And yet the total configuration of the idea is not altered.

At AuthorPad, we know there is not one way alone to the destination. There are numerous other ways, which we would be glad to help you realize. There is a series of ways in which you can weave that story, and which ways would give it an ingredient of creativity, a twist that may defy natural expectation with that captivating result.

For creativity to be effected, sometimes the creator must deviate from the dictations of convention and explore other dimensions of making. And that is good; for the creator is now permitted to a zillion other ways and formulas for him to come up with creatively forged creation. And since creativity follows no formulae, the creator cannot be bound by convention or even the limit of ideas. He can blend an idea with another to produce an even better idea. For example, a single book can have many subgenres, or even genres blended to produce a hybrid genre. How easy, then, would it be, imagine, for a stranded writer to introduce a new phenomenon in their book which would twist the plot and excite the intrigue of the reader? It would not only uplift their spirit of muse but also earn them a label of being able to engage in their work with a great deal of creativity and diversity. The same is the example explained by the use of beginning a story with flashbacks—what in the normal world would come last. It is also a similar fashion of creativity that welcomes the reader as it plunges him into the end of the story as if the course of events were woven inside out.

At AuthorPad, we encourage you not to be concerned that your writing must adhere to a dogmatic pattern. Everything in every way can be flexible, and creativity is in diversity. We remind you that the greatest writers have always revealed their creativity by being flexible in the weaving of their narratives. Great writers, in typical instances, could begin a comedy and yet end it in a disaster; they could begin a love story and end it in a tragedy, they could even take their story from the earth to extra-terrestrial heights, and these unusual twists made their literary works indelible.

Contact us, and we will discover with you the many roads there are for you to reach the end of that book. We would love to explore together with you that latent creativity.
