For one thing, you can't be afraid of making mistakes or being wrong. You can't be too critical. Being wrong, if you can admit it, is an opportunity to learn. I think creativity feeds on a spontaneous flow of ideas, mistakes included. The more mistakes you make and cast them aside, the more creative you are .

@dalehileman,
I am a refugee from abuzz. I haven't been participating much in the past because I don't have a computer and so I have to go to the library once a week to use their computer . But now I have a cell phone, and as big a hassle as it is I still contribute more.

Now getting back to the question: how do we develop a creative mind? does sexual release help or a lack of sexual release? How about stimulants like coffee,? Remember the ads on television? They would bring on celebrities who are creative and and they would say,, "I am a coffee a achiever." I remember Kurt Vonnegut doing that once.

I'd suppose it relieves the wandering mind

By creative mind I'm really talking about an open, free-flowing mind. You can be creative without actually executing something.

Maybe it would be easier to state ways to not have a creative mind. Religiously adhere and conform to axioms you learned in childhood. Be sensitive to criticism, especially your own criticism, because you are afraid of disapproval or failure.

@coluber2001,
My idea of creativity involves, first, play. Play not as in the childhood playground so much but in the larger sense. We use to talk about this on the art threads. I probably was the one that brought it up (or was I), but those threads are worth a read.

@ossobucotemp,
Okay, so what do you mean by play in the larger sense?

@coluber2001,
like a child, pushing a block, where will it go? As a painter, I almost always started my paintings on the wild side, streaks of stuff, and then followed my inclinations, which mostly tightened up, sort of average to a viewer, but not always.
What do I mean? Toying.

@ossobucotemp,
