Y-Speak: When you create

A PASSION for the art of creation can be a tedious yet rewarding task for anyone interested. It’s a delicate form of a hobby or life task that takes patience and devotion to see any sort of crack of development.

Creation on a blank slate is free power anyone in the several generations is open to do. The only limit to such is the vastness of your imagination.

Think of it as beginning someone’s story. With a pencil or pen in hand, a blank paper and the knowledge and drive for creation, anyone could create anything out of something or even nothing. A story can be a drawing of a kingdom or forest of a faraway fantasy land with a lore that stems hundreds and thousands of years in the past. A story can be a poem or short story of a woman falling in love with a ghost that haunts the streets for his runaway killer. A story can be lyrics for a thank you song for the peers, friends, and family of a man growing in popularity in the music industry. A story can be anything that begins with a thought, then shifts to an idea.

Then, a story is born.

The moment someone gets a taste of the power of creation, the power to write, and make up things for personal or many other reasons, the mind starts reeling. It becomes a habit, a continuous thought that makes the few words “What if this happened?” make a story that could take weeks, even months, or possibly years to finish.

It’s a healthy habit to have fresh ideas every now and then, but if the habit starts setting to starting something and never finishing it, maybe such passion should be tamed at a minimal level. (Martina Ysabel C. Verzosa/Multimedia Arts, Malayan Colleges Mindanao)
