    I just wrote about Talking to Strangers. I’m amazed at how many people don’t want to engage with people they don’t know. Why not? Everyone is a story!

      Brilliant… I love that you are doing it!. You learn so much.

    #2 is arguably the most important. The computer can only show you things that have already been created – not what you are about to create (although it can inspire).

    My favorite way to stay creative involves me naming random things I own. I recently named the cold air fan that I sleep with. I also named a paper cocktail umbrella.

      This is a really good technique to train your imagination. Did you know that Actors will often have full blown conversations with inanimate objects?

    Agree with Anne – I love to be around nature :)

    I love mindmaps – they are really useful exploring a subject and finding unexpected connections.
