"I love to read. Why? Well, I need it like the air to my lungs and the blood to my heart, what a bird be without the sky, or an umbrella without the rain, empty. Living isn’t just about surviving, its loving, dreaming, imagining, and most of all, reading." - by Artsy Gal ~ YouTube
What is this blog all about?
Here on The Storybook Kingdom, you will find opinions and views on topics related to creative writing and probably could help to motivate writers to keep on writing.
Our thought is the most influential power we possess. It inspires us to do great things and imagine things beyond our reach. Many great scientific inventions and ideas we see around the world today were invented and propagated based on the imaginative ability of some of the past scientists and philosophers. They imagined about a fictional scenario and creatively put down their ideas into writing thus bringing forth ideas that stand the test of time. This was how most school of thoughts were propounded.
It is often said that the pen is mightier than the sword – this is due to the facts that creative writers have the ability to use their creative writing prowess to mildly criticise a political system or a particular reign. For example The Animal farm by George Orwell is the most influential political story ever written. The book portrays events that instigated the Russian revolution of 1917 and the Stalinist era of the Soviet Union. The write up unravelled the truth of common people who sacrifice everything for nothing. The animals used in the novel were used to portray human characters. This is the power of creative writing .

It is the most popular form of creative writing that requires the writer’s ability to be highly imaginative and fashionable in his writing an use of words.
