Freud on creativity

“A piece of creative writing, like a day-dream, is a continuation of, and a substitute for, what was once the play of childhood.” Freud
The same goes for any creative activity. It’s about retaining the freedom and humour and sense of awe we had as children. It’s also about expressing the darkness of childhood and the nightmares the child experiences with such a sense of reality. They later take on tangible forms in adulthood. Such as loss, betrayal, depression and disease.
