Imitation vs Creation

“The imagination imitates. It is the critical spirit that creates.”Oscar Wilde

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flatter. Would you be satisfied with just imitating or do you prefer to create original items yourself? What level are you currently at in your creative journey? If you feel like you’re just in the imitation stage, what do you need to do to step it up and take it to the next level?

(For what it’s worth, I’m not entirely certain I agree with this quote. If the imagination merely imitates, it would be an imagination now, would it?)
