Crushing Creativity Starts Young...

My latest column was initially inspired by the frustration of low freelance writer rates. Then I thought about how we don't value creativity in society - it is seen as an "extra" rather than an intrinsic component of our overall happiness. Perhaps this starts young and we are contributing to it by making our children focus on the "core" subjects rather than letting them free-range and follow what drives their passion...?

Or maybe I'm just annoyed someone was paid millions of dollars for writing 50 Shades of Grey.
