I am currently doing work on a project about creativity. The work is not intended to be about creativity in the arts but creativity in general, to help make it accessible to anyone who wants to know how to boost their own creative potential. I am beginning by asking my friends and colleagues, and you, what your own personal observations are about what sparks your creativity. While I do not have questions that I am asking, I hope that by keeping it open, I will not influence anyone’s reply. Sometimes when we ask leading questions, we can limit the information that we wind up getting. So anything that you observe about creativity is welcome and if you do need a question to spark your response it would be: what does it for you? What things serve to spark your creativity? Is it something inward or outward? What things serve to get you in a creative mood? Do you observe certain things that you do to get into a creative mood or space?
This information will serve to form one part of the foundation of this work (I assume at this early stage). Comments and contributions, if used, will be used with permission and attribution unless you want your observation to remain anonymous. So if talking about your own creative process is something that interests you, I would love to hear from you! You can simply make a comment connected to this post or you can email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any and all observations are greatly appreciated!
Also a form is included for those who want to add their thoughts but do not want them to show up in the comments section. This will come to me via email.
