Isaac Asimov on Creativity

Want to have a greater understanding of creativity? Take the extra five minutes to read this statement written by Isaac Asimov.

One part that I especially like,
Obviously, then, what is needed is not only people with a good background in a particular field, but also people capable of making a connection between item 1 and item 2 which might not ordinarily seem connected.
I would say this is definitely true of good standup premises. A comedian sees a connection which most people wouldn't. That is as simple a statement as any to describe what improv folks, comics, and writers do.

Shorter post today, but that article is definitely worth a read.

See you tomorrow!
