Having an imagination is having the ability to visualise something that is not physically touchable, seeable or there. Being imaginative is having the capacity to reach beyond what you see, to be inspired. Being imaginative is different to being creative because imagination is being able to visualise what is not there but creativity is being able to let others see or visualise what you imagine. You can be imaginative and creative if you are able to write down what you imagine because then it becomes seeable to other people in there minds eye. Being imaginative is a personal thing but being creative is a shareable thing.
