My blogging buddy, Bill, whom I've mentioned before, illustrates a terrific example of creativity in the most recent post on his blog. (I'll give you the link later, so as not to encourage you to click away from me!)
When my children were very small, the four of us used to climb onto my bed before bedtime, and create stories. One of us would begin with a premise: Once upon a time, a gerbil escaped his cage and climbed into a bird cage inhabited by... Another of us would continue the story and we'd take turns, transforming a silly premise into a wild and hairy adventure. Much like the story I tried to get going several blogposts ago with the handsome couple sitting on the bus. The assassin is my son's girlfriend and the handsome guy is--you guessed it--my son. (Thank goodness they both have good sense of humor and love me!)
What do YOU do to get those creative juices flowing?
