"Perhaps imagination is only intelligence having fun." George Scialabba
Perhaps that is why it is so much fun to be creative! There is a real thrill when the pieces of a story come together, when imagination (or the muse, or whatever you want to call it) drops the answer to a question of plot into my brain. The beauty and simplicity of the answer has made me gasp on more than one occasion, often followed by a large grin and/or laughter. I get to share a moment of pure joy with a part of my brain that enjoys surprise and wonder and fun.
