Whenever I think of creativity one thing precedes it in my thoughts, an open mind. There should be flow of all kinds of ideas in and out of a mind just like traffic in a round about. Odd ones like designing a house of plastic bottles, extreme ones like condensing room-size vacuum pumps and transistors into a microchip, simple ones, in quotes, like writing a book or article. It’s what you feed your mind that makes the difference. GIGO. Garbage In Garbage Out.
- A writer said she reads the kind of books she wanna write.
- An artist confessed he looks around and gets insight from what he sees.
Creativity is stained. You have to know something to come up with another. So get out there and know something first.
