30 April 2017, wee hours...
Back in the day, when I thought there was some remote chance that I would get tenure at a good university, I did some publishing on the subject of creativity. I stumbled across these today and decided to share them with you. Never got tenure, largely because I just gave up. But, these were worth doing and worth reading.
Prepare Your Mind For Creativity
Prepare Your Mind For Learning
Deborah K Smith, PhD
As a self-proclaimed mixed media artist and creative professional, I am in my 3rd career, having spent 15 years as a software developer and another 15 as a university professor. My first love and my most demanding one has always been creating whether it be a drawing, a bit of crocheted lace, a cloth doll, a piece of software, a PhD dissertation, or a piece of digital art. I simply LOVE to make things and I see make and make-over opportunities everywhere. My only regret is that there is no possible way that I can live long enough to make all of the things I see in my mind.
