Embrace serendipity

Always be reviewing

Nothing is original

Use a simpler medium

Lottery tickets for creativity

Look for relationships

To systematise creativity, try:

Generating idea flow

Let ideas incubate

Sleep on it

The Made-Up Award Principle

Play with density vs comprehensibility

Non-judgmental ideation

Have a schedule

Theme and variation
