I’m a bit pressed for time today, so I’m just going to share this awesome lecture by John Cleese on the topic of creativity–what it is, how it happens, and what you can do to make it easier to be creative. It’s funny, insightful, and offers useful information to writers and non-writers alike. If you’ve got a half-hour to spare, definitely give it a look.
I was pointed to this video thanks to MrBTongue over at Tasteful, Understated Nerdrage. Give him a look, too. He does in-depth, intellectually rich commentary on gaming and other subjects, such as this fantastic analysis of Blade Runner.
