Discovering Your Creative Type

Everyone is creative. It’s not a matter of giftedness, but a matter of biology. The parts of the brain that make up the creative centers are common to everyone. The difference lies in the different ways people use their creativity. I consider there to be two major types of creativity, improvisation and organization. If you watch the above video, you’ll learn the difference between the two, and how that knowledge can help you in your writing. And if you take the quiz below, you can learn which creative type you tend to be. This is the short version of the quiz. You can see the full version at, but either one should give you an idea of your creative type.

About Chas Hathaway

Chas is an author, musician, husband, dad, and X-grave digger. He's always enjoyed writing. He started keeping a daily journal when he was 13, and that started a pattern of regular writing that has continued to this day.

His first book, Giraffe Tracks, a memoir of his missionary experiences in South Africa, was published in 2010, and in July 2011, Cedar Fort published his book, Marriage is Ordained of God, but WHO Came Up with DATING?!

Chas has been playing piano since 1994, and actively writing New Age piano compositions since 1996. He has long felt that the greatest factor in the influence of a piece of music is the intent of its author. He has also written numerous LDS Hymn arrangements, many of which are available in sheet music, including the favorite hymns, If You Could Hie to Kolob and Come Thou Fount.

So far, Chas has 4 albums out:

Tune My Heart, Released 2012
Anthem of Hope, 2010
The Ancestor, 2009
Dayspring, 2007

While music and writing are his most time-consuming work, he also enjoys gardening, inventing games, and most of all, spending time with his beautiful wife and adorable little kids.
