|If only it was this easy.|
1. Nothing is too outrageous to consider.My book, Art THINK (available above, right), has several ideas arrived at in just this manner. Look under the heading, "Artists' Block."
2. Write everything down; don't fret the format.
3. Seek the input of others.
4. Don't stop the moment you think you've stumbled upon something.
5. Stop only when your run out of paper or the pencil lead breaks.
6. Eliminate--cross off the truly stupid ideas.
7. Evaluate the ones that are left.
8. Execute the one that looks most promising.
9. Don't throw the list away, it'll save you time the next time.
