io9 linked to this presentation by John Cleese on Creativity.
I’ve been trying to read (and listen) widely on creativity and creating now that I’m spending more time on my fiction and freelance projects. I love the idea of a Space-Time Oasis.
Also, I love John Cleese. I think I would be a far different person had I not encountered him (and his colleagues) when I was younger.
His point about “playing” with other people is one I resonate with. Recently, I was having trouble coming up with ideas with which to revise my MG novel. Once I brought N into the discussion, they just started flowing.
If anyone has any other links or tips about creativity, please let me know.
