How to Be Creative: 6 steps

This wikiHow article provides some great ideas, with pictures! Here's the introduction:
Creativity can't be taught, but you can get better at aligning the circumstances that foster the greatest chances for creative expression. Creativity is not like a lightning strike, but more like something which bubbles up inside those who can create the right conditions for it to prosper.
And the steps--described at the website in much more detail:
  1. Limit your tools to only the most vital. 
  2. Don’t listen to feedback.
  3. Having a routine may not actually be a bad thing.
  4. Let go of perfectionism.
  5. Ignore trends.
  6. Ignore the past.
Some Creative Exercises and additional Tips follow those steps. 

BTW, I wasn't familiar with wikiHow. Here's a description of it where people can edit articles:
wikiHow is a collaborative writing project. You should expect other wikiHow community members will edit and build upon the writing that you submit here. By submitting your writing, you confirm that you wrote this content or have received permission from the copyright holder to post it here.
