Creative Grimoire is an ongoing creative memoir by author and musician Dane Clark Collins, driven by an obsessive pursuit to understand how the mind formulates useful or profound ideas.
- How can a person have more of these ideas?
- What does it take to bring ideas into the world?
- What are the optimal ways to practice one’s chosen craft?
- How can a person cultivate improvisational creativity?
These are questions with a surprising number of good answers, as practiced by artists and innovators and as studied by scientists.
I’ve kept extensive records of my research and my own experience over decades. I realized I could put together a pretty damn good book just from what I’ve already written on the topic. But I decided to start with this site.
So here we are.
This is also where I tell people what I’m up to.
