Owl and the The Murderous Unicorn
"It's the pool where we all go down to drink, to swim, to catch a little fish from the edge of the shore; it's also the pool where some hardy souls go out in their flimsy wooden boats after the big ones. It is the pool of life, the cup of imagination" - Stephen King.
What is creativity? How to we find it? When we've got it, how do we use it?
How do we keep on top of our game? How do we keep our creative pool filled?
When it's dry, how do we fill it again?
Thoughts on creativity, murderous mythical creatures and a stroll along the shore.
