The creative process is mysterious, intriguing and elusive. The above quote from celebrated Japanese novelist Haruki Murakami evokes an other-wordliness, a dream-like state, an escape from reality that many other creative individuals through the years have described in similar terms. It is perhaps this type of artistic creativity - with its allusion to an enhanced or altered mental state which generates something original and beautiful - that appeals to so many people who have researched creative processes and promoted the benefits of creativity for society.
