I discovered this post on the write to done site - Seven Steps to Creativity - How to have Ideas written by Simon Townley of WriteMindset. Although the article is targeted primarily to writers, I believe mixed-media artists, and bloggers too, could benefit from the ideas.
Basically, the steps come down to:
- Gather the information
- Sift it
- Let it percolate
- Let the ideas flow
- Shape and mould the ideas
- Share them with others
- Put the feedback into the loop; and repeat the process to strengthen your ideas.
However, to get the full benefit of this article, check out the complete post
