People often ask me, "How do you come up with these ideas?"
I have learned to be polite, shrug, and say, "It's just the way that I think, I guess."
However, inside I'm saying, "What do you mean? What happened to your imagination?"
But that would be rude and unkind.
The fact is, you hardly ever have to instruct a kid in how to imagine stuff. In fact, we usually see frustrated parents trying to tie their kids to Planet Earth, they're so far out there in their imaginations!
And that's the whole key to being original and creative: Recapture that innocence, and delight in everything, that you experienced as a child. Before you know it, you'll be thinking in original and creative terms, too.
