From time to time, I like to go back and revisit things I published a long time ago on Pointless Overthinking. Recently, while doing this sort of review, I reread this piece and thought that the title seemed like a great question to ask, so here goes…
Where does creativity come from?
When thinking about this, you might want to consider your own creative endeavors. Why do you feel the need to write or make art or quilt or whatever it is that you do? Where do your ideas originate and what drives you to make things?
By the way, years ago, back when I was teaching at Bilkent University in Ankara, Turkey, I taught a writing class on creativity, so it’s a topic I’ve long been interested in, and I expect to learn lots of cool things from your comments.
