Creativity blooms in solitude

I do credit my good old friend Roseinbloom on this site for the present blog.
It was about my just refusing to see my watch when I am writing poetry or novels or stories.
For last few months, I have neither sat before TV, nor read any newspaper, nor picked up any calls- other than emergency calls.
Results? Astounding! Dramatic! Inconceivable! As my books may prove in near future. I wrote at my very best. I felt the birth of a restless, tireless teenager in half pants within me asking for more.
I always felt all creative arts demanded meditative devotion. Unless you worked as if a worshiper does at His altar, you are not blessed.
A top Hindi poet, [father of Star of Millennium- Amitabh Bachchan] Dr. Harivansh Rai Bachchan [Doctorate in English from Cambridge University- only second Indian at that time to get Doctorate in English literature] wrote in his autobiography:
"Do not bother me when I'm busy in writing, unless the house is on fire."
He taught English literature at Allahabad University, but wrote top- class Hindi Poetry.

    ha ha. A true writer has so much unsaid cappuccino. He wants to partake the grief and mirth of each man, each plant and animal each rock and each water reservoir all over the universe. How can be close his eyes.
    Bless you.

    Creativity needs solitude to achieve the best work one can do; to have the quiet moments to let one’s mind be free to achieve. Not all of us get this solitude and it is to be cherished.” ……….don’t bother me unless the house is on fire”. I truly admire creative people – I missed out there 🙂

    Yes I agree creativity needs solitude, you need time without interruptions to get the mind flowing especially when writing poems, and in stories feeling how the charictors would feel you have to get into there mind set as well as stay with your own mind.
    Hope this reply is understandable.
