The Sky’s the Limit, really!

How many of us as children yearned to be writers and/or artists? Ever enjoyed imagining worlds in primary school and became annoyed when the bell rang, signalling the end of the lesson or playtime?

As we get older, we seem to gravitate towards the technicalities of such dreams of become published – of what hoops we have to jump through and how much editing work we need to do, which can drown out our creative thoughts.

I’m often left astounded at the marvellous things children can and have done – and the secret can be seen through this wonderful child prodigy, Adora Svitak –  http://www.ted.com/talks/adora_svitak.html showing us how thinking “childishly” – having big ideas and optimism, can be seen as positive rather than just negative.  A writer and amazing speaker at just 12 years old –  it’s a joy to watch.

Enigma’s ethos is to encourage creativity at all ages, and she explains it beautifully!
