It's apparent that a large number of the people who pass through here are creative. Heck, I think everybody is creative, it's just some people go after it more fervently than others. What gets your creativity churning? What gets the ideas flowing? BP just took a trip to NYC. That jumped started him. BG agreed that when she leaves that city, her mind is brimming with ideas.
Some people turn to music, some to naps, some just open their eyes and take in whatever it is they're seeing. Some people are influenced by zany blogs. I've used all of the above and more.
What floats your creative boat?? I'm guessing we've all got creative catalysts in common, but I'm guessing we've all got our surefire tricks stashed away for those moments when all else fails. Pony up and share!
