Be creative and make it creative! You can post images, videos, music, but most of all I expect you to have fun and to post your "wondrous stuff".

One must be an inventor to read well. There is then creative reading as well as creative writing. (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
I don’t know much about creative writing programs. But they’re not telling the truth if they don’t teach, one that writing is hard work, and two, that you have to give up a great deal of life, your personal life, to be a writer. (Doris Lessing)
No one knows what he can do till he tries. (PUBLILIUS SYRUS, Maxim 786)
Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly. (Robert F. Kennedy, To Seek a Newer World)
One age’s oddities and curiosities are often another’s masterpieces. It may be that it requires a long absorptive time for a unique style to be understood and then admired, or an original thought to be comprehended and then appreciated. The resistance to such phenomena is great. Most people prefer the easy and familiar . . . Only the future reveres the original and daring style. (Doris Grumbach, introduction to Writer’s Choice edited by Linda Sternberg Katz and Bill Katz )
When a true genius appears in this world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in confederacy against him. (Jonathan Swift, Thoughts on Various Subjects)
