Writing Phase

The writing stage is a discussion of each topic item contained in the essay framework. In the framework of the essay, more detailed explanations are still needed so that the reader can understand the intent of the text delivered. In writing, essays are very necessary choice of words that are precise, careful, and straightforward, so that in holding this writing, the author must be able to devote all the mastery of vocabulary he has.

2.5 Ways to Grow Creativity in Writing

In this life creativity is very important, because creativity is an ability that is very meaningful in the process of human life. Human creativity gave birth to a great creator that colored the history of human life with its spectacular works. Like the king of microsof Bill Gate, JK Rolling with his Harry Potter novel, Andrea Hirata is the author of the best seller of the iranian warriors, etc. What they created was an original work that was extraordinary and meaningful, so people were impressed and hunted for his work.

How can we be creative?

Always have curiosity.

Creative people are people who like to look for information, like to gather input, and love science. No time passes unless it is added with new and fresh inputs. Therefore, we must always ask, the extent of our love of information and knowledge. There are many ways you can do to get these inputs. Can pass books, research, listen, watch television shows that are useful, discuss, reflect, listen, attend science assemblies, and so on.

Open to new things.

Every time there is always a change. The loss is that people don’t want to change and don’t like new things. Creative people are people who are not shackled by their own opinions. Of course, being open to new things doesn’t have to make us follow these new things. We can process it, filter out good things, and adjust to our values.

Dare to bear risk.

All creative actions will usually invite risk. It is a dream to do something new without risk. The Prophet Muhammad was a creative person by bringing new teachings (Islam) to the midst of his people. Consequently, he was hostile and fought. Likewise with Thomas Alfa Edison. He is a creative person who dares to fail thousands of times before finding a light bulb. To be creative, we must dare to bear the risk, get out of our comfort zone.

Have a burning passion for success in life.

Without enthusiasm, it is impossible for us to get many things in life. Enthusiasm will usually multiply a person’s ability to excel. People who are creative, in their days will always be eager to proceed in reaching for everything they want.

The value of creativity will be more complete with a clear heart as a fruit of quality worship

Usually, clarity of heart will give birth to hunches and brilliant ideas that will be added value in the life of a Muslim. Usually, monumental works always begin with the clarity of heart and sharpness of mind realized in real action. The presence of clarity can increase creativity.
