What is the creative process? Can anyone generate great ideas? Perhaps, with the right motivation, everyone could construct a marketing or promotional strategy, and construct a great advertising campaign. What stimulus would be required to inspire someone to write exciting copy?
Being in an excited state of mind would certainly be a beneficial factor to initiate the creative process. The dynamic of enthusiasm, and methods for entering the zone of jubilation, are among the starting points for inventiveness.
Would drinking an exotic beverage, or eating flavorful meat, help to generate the productive process? Or would visiting a comedy club, or watching comedic videos, motivate one to enter into an artistic mind-space? Possibly, having snacks nearby, such as cupcakes or chips to nibble on, would be best for one’s playful nature to arise, while one writes.
Once enthused, one can begin composing great marketing material. Listening to high-spirited music, while one writes, can set the tone of one’s typing speed and stimulate one’s thought generation process. Music can set a rhythmic balance, for the steady expressive flow, of one’s creativity to materialize on the computer screen, and eventually on paper. Watching a program about nature can connect oneself with one’s inner creative being. Shows about ecology and the animal kingdom are a great distraction. Reality television in moderation may also be a useful distraction. To be successful at inventing marketing and promotional text, one must write often and on a consistent basis.
The creative process initially starts with brainstorming. Generating many ideas before moving forward on any strategy is important for considering many options.
Being creative requires entertaining your mind. This means you must imagine that you are someone else who is providing mental stimulus to you. Various activities can assist you in this realm such as brain training exercises that challenge your brain to develop new thought patterns. Crosswords and other active thinking games can also be most helpful for generating creativity.
Writing a short story or comedic post may be useful to get your creative mindset in gear. You will want to occupy your mind in non-traditional ways to develop new intellectual processes.
You could also treat yourself to a day out at an art gallery or go on a leisure trip somewhere away from your primary work location for at least half a day. New sights and new interactions with new people will be most helpful for you to achieve the creative process.
