I was asked to answer a question on Quora.com, “What are some of the easy things that anyone can do to keep improving their Creativity?” I had fun writing my response and believe my readers would enjoy trying this creativity exercise too, give it a shot!
Be as playful as possible and combine different things to create new things – draw or describe it in a sketchbook or even just explore the different ideas in your imagination. How would an elephant crossed with a ladybug get around? What would a sports car crossed with a T-Rex look like? What would be different about puppies if they had flower petals instead of fur, or would it really be four-footed flowers?
Don’t spend more than a few minutes on any one idea, but do let your ideas evolve into others! Most of all, let your imagination run wild!
