The Creativity Diagram is an attempt to quantify the resources available to creative people so that they can prepare for ideas. It could also be considered a guide to an active relationship with the environment of creativity. Or perhaps it describes an ecosystem in which an artist, writer, or musician can build a habitat. And like organic ecosystems, it can be harsh or temperate- it can be a rich green jungle or the mountains of the moon. It may also have seasons, and with this tool we can look ahead to see the coming rain.
Ideas grow in all kinds of soil- the soil we make with our interests, our craftsmanship, and our desire to tell the world about the things that we can see from here. This could be a chart to prepare ourselves for whatever seed of an idea comes dragging a stick across your picket fence. It describes some of the ways that we can nurture those ideas. It’s a Farmer’s Almanac for the artistic temperament.
Also, it can be a problem-solving tool, pointing you towards balance. If that’s the kind of thing you’re into.
