I believe that my family members taught me everything I know about how to be creative. As part of my daily and personal experiences, I believe in the fact that everyone deserves the opportunity to be creative when they desire. Anyone can have a job in the creative arts, but everyone can be creative.

Being creative allows you to have great, new experiences. Some may be very difficult, while others are fairly easy. One thing stays the same, though: all experiences work out in the end.

About two years ago, my sister, Vanessa, loved to write interesting, amazing stories, along with drawing detailed pictures. She was very descriptive, along with her amount of creativity. I wanted to also be creative like her, so I asked her,” How do you be very creative?” She replied, with helping me discover how to be creative. She taught me that everyone has the chance to be creative every day. That is when I discovered the benefits of being creative.

Being creative has had its benefits. When you are creative, you see problems from a different point of view. This new look at the problem could be the solution. Another benefit would be artist and writing skills. Being creative helps you express your feelings and emotions through art, or writing. You could think of ways to design art or writing projects, enhancing these projects. During my fifth grade year, we did many art projects. These may have been difficult, but being creative helped me with these, with little trouble.

Creativeness can result in a future career, too. Many creative people, such as Vanessa, may want to undergo a career in creativeness. Creativeness may be easy, but a career in creativeness can be as hard as any other job. Having a creative job, you would have to think of many creative projects. This is not always easy. Any creative job can help you be more creative.

Creativity helps many lives, making them more fun. It allows them to express themselves, describing their feelings and emotions. Creative activities can be fun, exciting, and rewarding. Creativeness is a result of imagination thoughts flowing throughout the brain. When a creative image is made, it is as if the image is real, being as clear as water. Once this happens, you may want to immediately create this image, as if it were in front of you. People enjoy being creative, because they want to enjoy creating something, such as a story, essay, illustration, or sculpture, of their wildest dreams.

Being creative is something that encourages you to think in different ways. Creativeness is fun and rewarding, helping you develop new art, language arts, and problem solving skills. Creativeness is something everyone should have, along with practice every day. I enjoy being creative in many different ways.
