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.
