aaahhh....the blank stare. Nothing like the blank stare looming over the blank paper. I think my art teachers saw this same look on me as a teen. I am trying to teach the art of brainstorming to them. I tell them that it is a skill like anything else they can do. You must train your mind to think through a creative problem like you would train your fingers to play the guitar. It takes repetitive effort. You can't just walk outside and have it rain ideas.
