Amy Tan on Creativity

In the last blog creativity was associated with belief. The Novelist, Amy Tan delves deeply into her beliefs about how her creativity has developed.

How do you create something out of nothing? She goes back to the fundamental question of, "How do I create my own life?" By thinking about her role in all of it she considers "luck and fate, coincidences and accidents, God's will, [and] the synchrony of mysterious forces."
