"Creativity is the power to connect the seemingly unconnected."















South African Writer


1903 - 1973











Great writers and artists make mental leaps that often leave others baffled.  They make connections between what seem like very different things.  For me, this mental leaping often happens at a subconscious level and only occasionally spills over into the conscious world.  I make leaps while writing poetry that I know don't come from my conscious mind.  One way of increasing this unconscious leaping is to be constantly feeding information into your mind and and letting your subconscious connect the dots.  Even if you don't understand the connection in your rational mind, trust your subconscious because it understands the relationship better than the analytical mind.
