It is not true that people cannot be creative, that you have to be a genius to show creativity. Yet for some people, creativity is very hard to achieve. Why is that? In this article, we will talk about some thoughts regarding creativity.
Probably creative people in the field of arts and sports can tell that creativity is something that we can experience. Think of it this way, an artist does things that are very creative that he or she not only enjoy but also other artists too.
Regarding this topic, there is a book written by Jordan Belfort entitled Catching The Wolf of Wall Street. At the end of the book, he began to narrate how rubbish his writing at the beginning and his cell mate also said that it was useless. But then, reading a book many times written by Tom Wolfe entitled The Bonfire of the Vanities, changed his mind and the mental block that he is experience was gone.
So what is creativity? It can be a spark of sudden inventive activity or steps that can be learned such as exercising muscle toward something rewarding that you and other people can appreciate. Perhaps, creativity is a result that came from paced efforts or sporadic brilliance.

You could, especially when you have the desire to draw them.
