World Building: A Fun and Creative Hobby
World building can be a fun and creative hobby for those that have the patience required for the creative process. Good research and problem solving skills are required by anyone taking up this hobby. Many hours can be spent looking up information and details about a topic that is being incorporated into a design. The process many times will cause conflicts to arise within a design while it is being created which must be resolved before the project can be complete. Even the simplest of ideas can lead to hours of creative thinking and problem solving to make all the pieces fit just right.
Regardless of how simple or complex the idea is the first step is to define the scope of the project and the starting point.

Dmitri Shostakovich: A Musical Creative Genius

Dmitri Shostakovich: A Musical Creative Genius
"In Shostakovich we have the paradigm of a new, essentially political form of complex inward adjustments, one which requires a new kind of symphony." (Norris 177) Although a lifelong communist and an intense Russian patriot (he applied for and was granted membership into the Communist party in 1960), Dmitri Shostakovich composed under constant fear of public condemnation, often for what he perceived as the most contradictory reasons. He strongly believed in a profound bond between the composer and his society which enabled him to work, survive, and develop, but also which fostered an air of confusion when he felt he was wrongly criticized. In 1968, he was quoted as saying, "Soviet music is a weapon in the ideological battle. Artists cannot stand as indifferent observers in this struggle."

Creative Story: My Golden Age

Creative Story: My Golden Age
Many people have their own Golden Ages. It is like a dream that a person
would like to live out. Many of these dreams tend to be similar to a utopia, or
a perfect world. Due to the fact that their Golden Age is a perfect world, most
of these dreams are a little bit on the unrealistic side. Most of them never
come true. However, I am not so picky. I would make the best attempt to make
my life the best it could be, and also knowing that it could come true, and
still be on the realistic side.

Pete pulled up to the familiar sight of cooling towers overshadowing his
car as he parked his car next to the multitude of his coworkers. His day began
just like the others. If there was any plutonium to be expected, he was damn
sure he would be the one to inspect it. He walked past George the security
guard, asked him how he was doing even though he didn't really give a rat's ass
how he was, he was just a friendly person. As he strolled down the corridor to
the area in which he worked, he noticed something strange. There was not as
many people buzzing around the hallways, hitting on the women workers, or even
hanging around the coffee maker. "Must be another layoff meeting," he thought
to himself as he slid his access card into the slot and the door opened.
