Thought it might be a good idea to get my definition on what creativity is down at the beginning of the unit to see if it changes come the end.

Creativity to me is a combination of problem solving and discovery. It doesn’t have to be a world first never before seen kind of discovery it just needs to be a first for me (the individual). It can be as simple as taking a new route to work or a DIY project you have come up with. Even just a general curiosity into others creative solutions, how they came about and how to build on them.

Assuming what I am saying is true then everyone must be creative right? Well that is my belief and here is my proof.

You are reading a book describing the appearance of a character. This is the problem as you are only looking at black text on a page. Yet in your minds eye you are able to visualize the descriptive text to create that character. More impressive still is the fact the description is very rarely complete and you are required to fill in the gaps. Creating a character that is unique to you.

So the real question isn’t whether you are creative or not it’s how far you will take it!

What are your thoughts?
