- If we are doing any project or any work each time our mind and each and every nerve should think about that work, so by that time I will get new ideas about that work.

Creativity is part of our Contentment
- I work on cars. I do both auto body repair and mechanical repair. There is nothing more satisfying then to stand back and look at the car you painted or listen to the engine run or having the idiot lights go out. Everyone should have a project or a hobby to work with.

What is your Favorite Technique
- Reading, and allowing myself to move from one topic to another. I am amazed at what ideas I can discover, especially when I am not looking. I do not see any area or possible connection off limits. I keep my mind as free and open as possible.

A Narrow Focus
- I read this in a book somewhere and it's amazing because it takes your mind from the broad to the concrete (which is where creativity will ultimately express itself): Take a walk around the block and select something like the color Red. As you walk, seek out this color and just notice it. It can be any color that inspires you - or any 'thing' that you want to see. Signs of Money, Signs of Love, Signs of Intellectual Brilliance...whatever you want to bring into your focus.

- Suggestions were good ones, but quiet time also works: time alone w/nature. If connecting w/great outdoors isn't possible, a quiet room also works. For me, only way to efficiently recharge brain's, "battery" for creative function.

Writing is magical
- Writing writing writing about whatever comes to mind clears my thoughts and voila, I get such inspiration for a particular creative project be it a collage, a short story or a drawing. It always works.

- A person with positive thoughts, will always be capable of creativity. Positive thoughts leads to peace of mind. A peaceful mind will have more space to new ideas to creativity.

- To get new ideas, I pray first, then take a walk, employing my three writing techniques one after the other (OBSERVATION, IMAGINATION, AND EXPERIENCE). By the time I get back from my walk, I feel like I've caught my inspiration.

- Your environment is extremely important. Create a space that fits you and your personality. I love to be outside as this is my ideal place..I have a thinking and writing corner outside. In the swing, I think. I have a great chair with a night reading light on my porch and I drink in the creativity around me...birds singing, night sounds or my beautiful mountains and flowers. Enjoy and Create

- I take a nap thinking about the project I am planning or have a hard time finishing. When I awake I am a very creative. Ideas just flow.

- I like to carry name cards with inspiring quotes from my reading. My favorite is Mary Baker Eddy. Then pull one out at any inspired moment to revive the process of creativity.

Boosting your creativity
- Always carry a small notebook or sketchbook and a pen/pencil with you everywhere - absolutely everywhere you go. Write down every idea, observation, creative thought or fodder for a possible poem, painting or project you may do. Or take one that you are thinking of writing a poem about and write a short story or drawing instead.
- The ONLY sure way I know to boost my creativity is to surround myself with other creators! Not only to they inspire but they bring out my sense of competition! They wake my "ego" up!!! I am a professional gardener. The soil is my medium. I have to be around other gardeners or artist in general or my spirit goes too "sleep"!
