and the tips are...

1. make lists

5. quit beating yourself up
6. take breaks
7. sing in the shower
8. drink coffee (maybe diet coke counts?)
9. listen to new music
10. be open
11. surround yourself with creative people
12. get feedback
13. collaborate
14. don't give up
15. practice, practice, practice
16. allow yourself to make mistakes
17. go somewhere new
18. count your blessings
19. get lots of rest
20. take risks
21. break the rules
22. don't force it
23. read a page of the dictionary
