A Quote – On The Use Of Creativity

“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” – Oscar Wilde

I collect quotes and often return to the ones which speak to me. This one has been tapping me on the shoulder, wanting to be shared with my students.

To often we get in our own way, with many things, but especially with writing. When we don’t write, it becomes harder to write. When we do write, even for 5 minutes a day, it becomes easier to write. I have experienced this on both ends, the writing and the not writing, and know it to be true for me.

What is holding you back today? Pick up that pen, fire up that computer or typewriter and begin. Even if you only have five minutes. It could be the best five minutes of your day.

    Oh it is. At university I went some 5 years without writing any fiction and when I finally got back into it it was very tough. I won’t let that happen again!
