Flex your creative muscle


Gabriela Pereira likes to think of creativity as a muscle — we all have it, but it does need to be strengthened.

OK, great, but how do you develop it, then?

Through exercise, of course.

Pereira suggests the following six methods to help your brain reach peak creativity.

1. Image file

2. Character compass

3. Color theory

4. Negative space

5. Word box

6. Acrostics and word puzzles

She explains each of these in further detail at Writer’s Digest.
