11 Tips to Shake Your Creativity Loose
July 2, 2012 § 2 Comments
One of the most common questions asked of authors is, “Where do you get your ideas?” The most common answer is, “Everywhere!” But that’s not very helpful to the struggling writer who thinks all of his ideas are boring.
The good folks over at Mental Floss posted an interesting list today called “For Your Inspiration: 11 Imagination-Jarring Tips From Creative Geniuses.”
While there are some rather unique ideas on the list, I know there’s more than 11 ways to jumpstart your creativity. For example, I get a lot of my ideas from the news; I read a story and then ask, “What if it was really because of this?” I also like to riff off of others ideas and ask, “What would it really be like to be so-and-so.”
That’s why I’m putting the question to you: Where do you get your ideas? How do you kick-start your creativity? Leave a comment below and let me know!
