I took a class in college called Creativity in Business. We completed weekly exercises in order to explore and expand our creative side.
The creative process isn't only deciding what to make and then making it. The creative process is exploring likes and dislikes; it is combining, replacing, separating, narrowing down, stretching out. It is thinking about old and new - what was, what is, and what is to come.
To help us inspire, expand, and explore our creative side, I would like to present a weekly exercise in creativity. Each Monday I will write about some topic that forces me to combine, separate, narrow, stretch, etc. I will write about it and I will invite you to write about the same topic on your blog and leave your link here. Please link back to the original post here.
Remember when you were a kid and you thought that anything was possible? Go back to that place when you play along. Unless the exercise is limiting in nature, don't hold back.
I'll let you know what the next topic is ahead of time so you can have your post written by Monday (Saipan time, that's GMT+10). Ah Monday, the day most of us dread. Why can't everyday be Sunday?
