Go sit in a place where you feel relaxed. Just sit and daydream. Be in the moment. What do you see, hear, smell? Tap into your senses and what’s going on around you. It’s not emptying your brain as in meditation, it’s about noticing and being bored. Do this for 15 minutes. Can you do it for 7 days? What did you notice? Do you start looking forward to it?

Completely hooked on this show! I keep binge listening to certain episodes until my ears ring. I don't consider myself a creative, and hearing that it's something I can learn and improve on through diligent practice is SO exciting.

Great podcast and excellent presenter
Saw her at the Wisconsin Library Association convention in 2017. Easily the highlight of the conference for me. Signed up for her podcast before the program was over and have also found that very helpful. The notion that creativity flourishes with prompts or with appropriate structure, while other structures simply crush it is obvious when stated so eloquently and clearly. Her podcast brings in other top pros in the field and is now a staple for me.
