We’ve got to learn with the best, right? At least this is what I think. You must be always learning but most of the time you can learn quicker if your teacher is one of the best. And when I say teacher it doesn’t necessarily mean a professor in a classroom.
A teacher can be anyone. Even that strange lady that approaches you, carrying an open umbrella in a sunny day, saying that she was a singer. You are attempted to think that she is a little bit crazy. But she isn’t crazy. In fact she sings and you notice that she’s got a great voice. In that moment she teaches you to not judge people by appearance.
We all know that. But we’re always doing it.
Let’s talk about creativity. Better, let’s give some space to Neil Gaiman talk about creativity. After all, he is one of the best. And a great teacher.
In just four minutes he teach something very important: ideas are all around. If you didn’t see them, there’s no problem. Create your owns.
To give you some heads up, here are seven lessons about the process of creativity and how writers get their ideas:
1 – Desperation
2 – Deadlines
3 – While doing something else
4 – Confluence
5 – Daydream
6 – Catch the idea when it comes
7 – Create one idea, the others will come
