Writing is creative because you can tell a story using words in such a way that the reader can visualize scenery, events, and characters in their mind. Especially in fiction, you are creating something (that didn't previously exist) comprised of characters, plots, events, emotions which in the end is a whole story.
Stephen King is one of my favorite writers just for that reason. When I read his stories, his written words are so descriptive and so fast moving, they form a panoramic view, like a movie in my head. So much so at times, I feel the tension, the suspense and emotion from a character's point of view. He is one of a few authors that have that effect on me.
"Your job, as a writer of short fiction--whatever your beliefs--is to put complex personalities on stage and let them strut and fret their brief hour. Perhaps the sound and fury they make will signify something that has more than passing value--that will, in Chekhov's words, "make you see what he is like." - Rick Demarnus
Another way to put it - a great painter uses a brush on canvas to create a picture, a moment of time, or an object. A sculptor creates with stone or metal. A writer creates with words.
