Notes from An Alien

~ Explorations In Reading, Writing, and Publishing ~

A Recipe for Creativity


The three main topics of this blog, Reading, Writing, and Publishing, are done by three types of people, Readers, Writers, and Publishers—real obvious, eh?

Also, there are many folk who do two of those things and even a growing group of people who regularly do all three.

The point of this post?

All three activities require Creativity for maximal effectiveness.

You probably easily see the need for creativity in Writing and Publishing but the Reader without a creative mind will probably find most books boring :-)

Something to note about about creative people—they’re usually lovers of humor.

I’ll even go out on a limb and declare that humor demands creativity

And, I’ll even stress the limb a bit more by saying creativity loves humor

Which brings me to the introduction to the video I’m sharing with you today.

Ever heard of John Cleese?

How about the “Beatles of Comedy”, Monty Python?

If you’ve never heard of either and you’re a Reader, Writer, or Publisher, there’s still hope for you—I think

The video below is Mr. Cleese offering “a recipe for creativity, delivered with his signature blend of cultural insight and comedic genius”.

So, basically, an intelligent talk blended with superb silliness :-)

    I loved this video! I think John Cleese really nailed some very important points about Creativity and the mental space you need to be in to allow it to happen…:-)

      And, I’m glad I chose it because it led to a certain someone recommending to me I check out the BBC series Fawlty Towers with Mr. Cleese :-)
