Voices of Fiction - Can Creativity Be Taught - Part Six

Welcome to Voices of Fiction.

We continue our discussion on creativity.

Please welcome our authors.

Born in France, award-winning author Vijaya Schartz never conformed to anything and could never refuse a challenge. She likes action and exotic settings, in life and on the page. She traveled the world and writes with the same ease about the future and the far away past. Her novels collected many five star reviews and literary awards. - Website, Amazon, Barnes/Noble

Cindy Cromer's first published novel earned her the title of award winning author. Desperate Measures, won the highly competitive mystery/suspense/thriller category in The Smart Writ Book Awards and was named a winner in The Authors Show contest, 50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading. Website, Books/Books, Vero Beach Book Center

Nicole Zoltack loves to write whatever strikes her fancy. When she’s not writing about knights, talking unicorns, or zombies, she loves to spend time with her wonderful family. She enjoys riding horses (pretending they’re unicorns, of course!) and going to the PA Renaissance Faire, dressed in garb. Blog, Website, Amazon

Welcome Authors! It's wonderful to have you back.

Can creativity be taught?

Vijaya Schartz: There are many techniques one can use to open the channels of their creative mind. Meditation, visualization, etc. But ultimately, some people have a more logical and scientific mind, others a more artistic and creative mind. Once in a while you’ll find a person who has both in perfect balance. Not me. I’m and intuitive, creative, artistic person. Never was good at math but always brilliant in the literature department, music, painting…

Cindy Cromer: In my opinion creativity and writing are an inborn talent such as what an athlete, artist, or singer possesses. Sure there are some classes, techniques, coaching, etc. that can fine tune and develop that talent to its fullest potential. Remember, this is just my opinion so don’t shoot me. LOL!!

Nicole Zoltack: I think everyone has some level of creativity within them that can be nurtured and developed.
