Why Creativity Prompts?

Laramie, Wyoming is growing on me but these winters are always shockingly brutal.  Laramie is one of the coldest places on the planet (ok maybe the US) and the town is known for it's bad wind and bad winters.  This being said I figured I would start by sharing some creative prompts that don't require traveling outside your home (though if you so choose I suppose you could).

These 40 creative prompts are designed the get your creative juices flowing by allowing you to detach from your daily routine whether it is writing, making art, staying at home with children or working. Changing how you think by applying rules and guidelines is beneficial for our creativity and drive.

Of course feel free to alter these prompts to fit your needs, but don’t be afraid to stick to the rules and experiment outside of your comfort zone. Rules can inspire great work.  Enjoy!!

What are some creative thinking techniques that you use??? Be sure to share.  They might even show up in my list.
