The Rules for Creative Writing

Summary: As creative professionals, it is sometimes necessary for us to get our inspiration for our work or writing from different sources, at times sources totally unrelated to advertising or communications. We need to give our minds a diversion, a thought or activity that captures them in order to give our thinking faculties a break. Sometimes we implement the same thinking processes on a matter totally different to get to what a result may look like. Then, after engaging in that brainstorming or brain-diversion activity, we return to the work at hand, refreshed and inspired.
