I am going to combine a few of the tips that I read in exhibit A into one (sort of cheating but it works well in my head that way).
I am going to combine creativity, simplicity and think like a child.
I like all of these because it reminds me of necessity is the mother of invention. You work with what you have to be creative to come up with solutions. The best solutions fall under the acronym KISS (keep it simple stupid!) because those solutions are elegant and illustrate the greatest understanding of the issue. They always say if you can't explain it in two minutes to anyone then you don't really know it. And finally children have a lens that is close to the ground, close to nature and not closed to possibilities by society. I appreciate that especially as it lends to creativity.
I am going to try and keep my ideas simple as I progress through the missions and quests.
