Creativity Might Start with Scones
I WANT TO KNOW more about the genesis of creative moments so I have asked three dozen creative university students about their creative processes. Some of their creativity springs from food.
I know the feeling accompanying the hunger of creativity. I get it some mornings when considering the day ahead over breakfast. So it is a big loss when I don't have time for my morning coffee notes.
Dave Winer once shared his Morning Coffee Notes in the internet age before Twitter. Now Winer's musings are sucked through a vortex created by the river of news.
But most of my creative students missed the pre-Twitter era and they need to hit the pause button when they sense creativity in the air because I want to know the sights, smells, sounds and motion in play when creativity surfaces. I expect some of these shared creative moments will enter the flow of #Octaver13 during the month ahead. We will dedicate a list that captures all these thoughts and the sounds that complement the process.
