Here’s an overview about my thought processes and cycles. Steps ten and eleven is the hard part because…number twelve. Repeat the cycle again and again.

Get an idea

1. See, hear, smell, taste, touch something interesting

2. Obsess about it

Do your research

3. Scour books at home, in the library and the bookstore.

4. Look online

5. Watch videos

6. Take a field trip for research

Record what you find

7. Take notes

8. Take photographs

9. Draw it out

Apply what you learned

10. Make something

11. Show someone. Let them know all that you’ve learned

Something else catches your eye.

12. Go back to step 1
