The 7 Real Signs of Creative Peoples

I have long wanted to wade into the deep and murky waters of Internet Meme List Making. Working in an actual creative industry for what I like to define as a Creative Agency, the recent rash of lists on what defines a creative person really jumped out at me, and I decided to dive in head first. It also gave me the chance to test out Getty Images new policy of letting blogs embed their images for free for non financial purposes, which I think is a very cool initiative on their part.

So, without further ado, may I present to you, based on my experience working in Advertising/Marketing (and considering myself a partial creative as well), the Top 7 Signs that define a real and truly creative person.

A Second Series of Vaguely Movie Related Tweets (5-13-12 to 8-28-13)

I generally spend an inordinate amount of time inside of my head crafting reviews and opinion pieces that I then forget before writing them down. With the advent of Twitter and FB, I started sharing out random thoughts and ideas with the intention of writing something more indepth at a later date. That has rarely happened.

This second series of vaguely movie related tweets (the first being here) span the period from March 13, 2012 to today – August 28, 2013. They are listed in the order in which they were originally tweeted. I may be missing some, because picking through a spreadsheet of tweets is a pain in the ass.

#ComposerCondoms – July 2011 (Failed Meme Creation Attempt)

Every once in a while I try to tackle the big wide social world all on my own and create a meme. I have failed to have any kind of impact whatsoever. Every single time. Here is my personal favorite attempt that gained zero notice on Twitter, and only made a little blip on Facebook when I reposted it to a Fan Page I administrate there for a local weekly comedy show that I produce.

If you are inspired by this one, then I invite you to pile on in the comments. I mean, only if you want. I mean, I don’t care. I am good if you don’t want to. It’s no biggie… Honest…

I have arranged these back into the order in which they were originally tweeted:
