How Do You Get Creative?

There are little tips and tricks to get the creative juices flowing. We know many writers who would rip cigs, chug a pot of coffee, or get to the bottom of a bottle before they found their story. Some like to read and enjoy a story to give them ideas on how to begin their ...
