In college I learned to really love editing. Not photographs, but papers. I always volunteered on group projects to compile and edit the paper. I also have always kept a journal. At some point I started combing the two by writing short essays about my life and then editing them. Writing a introduction, a body and a conclusion to a situation in my life helped me gain perspective. These essays would be complete with a title page, footnotes and a reference page. 

Creativity is about making something "new and valuable" (Creativity, Wikipedia, 2015.). I will help with the new if you bring the valuable.
