Excellent! Information presented in an informative, if somewhat frenetic method. Really gets into why reading matters in a most entertaining way. The original site is full of resources organised into grade appropriate categories.

7 Ways To Boost Your Creativity

7 Ways To Boost Your Creativity | Creativity | Scoop.it
Who better to go to for career advice than Sir John Hegarty, the co-founder of Bartle Bogle Hegarty, and one of the world’s most awarded creatives?

 

One way to turn a 10-year career, into 20 or even 50 years, according to Hegarty, is to stay connected. “You have to stay riveted to what is going on around you,“ he says. “And stay positive. Cynicism is the death of creativity.”

“I’m an only child and I’m just a real loner kind of person, and yeah, kinda dark. But I’m happy. Not sad. I’m just shy and nervous… I was a loner in high school. I keep to myself, but I love life.” Actor Clea DuVall

 

Creative performers have three seeming contradictions - energy/rest, extroversion/introversion, and openness/sensitivity, along with other key traits, notes cognitive psychologist Scott Barry Kaufman.

Another aspect of work situations and creative productivity is personality, including traits such as high sensitivity and introversion. For example, Susan Cain (author of "Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking") commented in a New York Times article: "Research strongly suggests that people are more creative when they enjoy privacy and freedom from interruption. And the most spectacularly creative people in many fields are often introverted, according to studies by the psychologists Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi and Gregory Feist." - From my post To Be More Creative, Be An Introvert  http://blogs.psychcentral.com/creative-mind/2013/04/to-be-more-creative-be-an-introvert/
