Theory of Creative Process
There are many thoughts and theories as to the process creative people go through during their creative periods. All of them hold merit; different people come to the solution to the same problem in different manners. However the more of these central processes we go through as we work towards our goal the more like we are to come out of with an innovative and creative end product.
As we strive to improve our creativity we need to examine what these core creative processes are and how we could best apply them to our own creative process. We also need to look at what we already do without even realising it so that we can make more effective use of these techniques. Deliberate use of a particular process will produce a better result than would incidental use.
