Michael Stevens Posted almost 3 years ago How to train my self to be creative? I've found that the best thing to help keep creativity going is to cultivate as much new/novel and varied experience as you can. I think when a person gets stuck in a creative rut it's mainly because their mind doesn't have very much new experience to learn from and introduce new views and ideas and understandings and relations and contrasts into things. Gotta have time where you're not being creative so much or even productive. Time where you're just taking in everything coming in during an experience for new things to work with, gotta step back from being productive/creative to refuel it basically.
