    Get Back, the fourth technique of Crushing Creative Block, involves getting back to the basics—your outline, storyboard, or napkin drawing.

What new play could you make? Use sentence completion tools. Download the PDF for nounstorming and verbstorming. These two lists of 104 words each will help you get words and word pictures flowing for your idea, product, or more. Photostorming is one of my favorite tools for Sneaking Under. Download the PDF of a sampler pack here. Puzzles make the creative process fun, especially for teams. Creative Kudos Hiram impressed me a great deal as I read through his life story in the Bible. Check this out. And King Solomon sent and brought Hiram from Tyre. 14 He was the son of a widow of the tribe of Naphtali, and his father was a man of Tyre, a worker in bronze. And he was full of wisdom, understanding, and skill for making any work in bronze. He came to King Solomon and did all his work. 1 Kings 7, ESV, emphasis mine I encourage you to click on the link above and read more. The details of his creations are right there in black and white.

    orking Around Creative Block is the most dangerous of the five methods for crushing creative block. If you work around what blocks you and don't go back and fix it, there could be consequences. Have the same fear Lucius Fox had about the Bat SONAR every time you employ this method.
