The creativity coach will need a few materials: scrap paper, a pad of paper, and pens or pencils. The coach will encourage the creative to work on paper, if there are no mobility concerns, as this may help avoid fears associated with the blank screen. Creatives are given 5 minutes for the preliminary task and are invited to print or write large. Alternatively, the coach might suggest that the creative circle or underline five words in a draft or in some other project. Most creatives are asked to write artist statements, apply for grant proposals, and participate in reviews. If an artist is working at home on such a task, he or she might try this exercise as a daily timed exercise or as a daily beginning activity. Some artists have tried using different media, such as painting the words into artwork or writing them separately on pages of an art journal as prompts.
